Annual General Meeting Members Pass Resource Revenue Policy

Released | November 29, 2011

Nunavut Tunngavik President Cathy Towtongie today explained the Resource Revenue Policy adopted by resolution by members during the annual general meeting in Cambridge Bay.

“The objective of the policy is to establish a clear, efficient and consensus-based policy to govern the use of a portion of the economic benefits derived from mineral resource development in Nunavut. It is not a policy on mining in general. NTI already has mineral resource development policies in place including the Mining Policy, Uranium Policy, as well as Rules and Procedures on Inuit Owned Lands. These policies will continue to govern how NTI negotiates exploration agreements or what’s in them. The intent of the Resource Revenue Policy is not to change the existing process that is in place.

Chief Theresa Okimaw-Hall to Be Executive Director of Canada Chrome

Montreal, Canada – Nov. 22, 2011 – KWG Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KWG) is very pleased to announce that Her Worship Chief Theresa Okimaw-Hall has been appointed Executive Director of Canada Chrome Corporation (“CCC”). CCC is the wholly-owned subsidiary of KWG which has staked a corridor of claims from the Ring of Fire to Exton, Ontario and is assessing those for the construction of a railroad.

On June 30, 2011 the Greenstone Economic Development Corporation (“GEDC”) and CCC filed a proposal with PPP Canada in response to its Round 3 Request for Proposals, suggesting a loan guarantee for the last 25% of the estimated cost of constructing the railroad would lower the project’s funding costs. The proposal outlined a long term plan for the First Nations of the James Bay Lowlands to be vested with ownership of the railroad in consideration of their consent to its construction within their traditional lands. As the legal entities required for the vesting of such ownership have yet to be created by those First Nations, the GEDC Board agreed to be the proposal’s present proponent on their behalf. Recently, PPP Canada advised GEDC that its Round 3 funding would be allocated only to “shovel-ready” projects, and that the railroad funding support proposal would require identification of the First Nations’ enterprise in order to receive further consideration. As Executive Director of CCC, Theresa Okimaw-Hall will now pursue the opportunities CCC has identified amongst all of the First Nations affected by the Ring of Fire developments, to formulate the mechanisms for their participation in the equity of CCC.

Partnerships Are Driving Progress In Building Labour Force Capacity In Canada’s North

NEWS RELEASE 12-56

Ottawa, November 21, 2011 – Joint initiatives among communities and businesses are helping to close the gap between the tremendous need for skilled workers in Canada’s North and the shortage of people with sufficient education and employment skills, according to a new report from The Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for the North.

“Many Northern communities are faced with a paradox. Businesses are investing and creating new jobs, but the local population is not always able to take full advantage of these opportunities,” said Anja Jeffrey, Director, Centre for the North. “What we are seeing, though, are innovative approaches emerging, with industry, organizations and communities partnering to improve educational outcomes and increase employment skills. And our findings show that these initiatives are having a real impact in improving labour force capacity in Canada’s North.”
