First Nations Summit Lauds Mining CEO for “telling it like it is”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 27, 2007

Coast Salish Territory/West Vancouver – The First Nations Summit is welcoming the comments from Northgate Minerals CEO, Ken Stowe, as reported in The Globe and Mail yesterday, which he offered in the wake of an environmental review panel’s historic recommendation to reject the company’s Kemess North application, as proposed in the un-ceded traditional territory of the Takla, Kwadacha, and Tsay Keh Dene, known as the Tse Keh Nay.

“Mr. Stowe hit the nail on the head. He has rightly cautioned major developers and their investors that First Nations need to agree with the merits of their projects,” said Grand Chief Edward John, member of the First Nations Summit’s political executive. “Otherwise, as Mr. Stowe himself said, ‘don’t waste your time’,” added John.

Silver Spruce Resources-Labrador Inuit Land

BRIDGEWATER, NOVA SCOTIA–(Sept. 14, 2007) – Silver Spruce Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SSE)(FRANKFURT:S6Q) responds to concerns brought forward by the Nunatsiavut Government (News release of September 7, 2007) regarding mineral exploration by companies on Labrador Inuit Lands (LIL) as reported in the CBC news stories on September 12, 2007.

The CBC news stories gave the impression that Silver Spruce’s work on exploration properties in Labrador would have to cease due to permit problems with the Nunatsiavut Government. This perception is incorrect. Problems were incurred when preliminary exploration (prospecting, stream sediment sampling, line cutting and baseline environmental studies) was carried out on Labrador Inuit Lands in the Mount Benedict Area, prior to the submission of a work permit approval request, in contravention of Section 4.11 of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement. This was an oversight by the company and the company immediately stopped all work on these lands, and has been in communication with the Nunatsiavut Government to discuss the issue since it was brought to the company’s attention.

The Mining Association of British Columbia: Inaugural Conference Reflects Growing Importance of Asia Pacific to Mining Sector

Asia Pacific Forum on Mining and Minerals taking place Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 2007

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Sept. 11, 2007) – For the first time ever, an international forum on mining and minerals is taking place in Vancouver focusing exclusively on the importance of the Asia Pacific region. The objective of the forum is to increase trade, investment and collaboration in the mining and minerals sector between B.C., Canada and countries around the Pacific Rim.

“The Asia Pacific region is growing in importance for the mining and mineral sector in British Columbia and Canada,” said Michael McPhie, President and CEO of the Mining Association of British Columbia. “Last year, almost 60 per cent of net mining revenues in B.C. came from markets outside of North America, including Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China and India. The significance of the Asian Pacific region for the mining sector drove the need for this inaugural forum.”
