Vancouver, BC. / TheNewswire / April 11, 2018: CMC Metals Ltd. - ("the Company") (TSX-V: CMB) - is pleased to announce that it has initiated a Class 1 notification process with the Department of Energy, Mines and Resources, Yukon Government ["YG"], to undertake a program of further resource readiness drilling of up to 2,000 metres over the upcoming June-September field season at its wholly-owned Silver Hart high-grade silver-lead-zinc property located in the Watson Lake Mining District of the Yukon Territory. In addition, the Company has submitted other applications essential to its advancement of exploration at Silver Hart. One is for a Land Use Permit, necessary from the YG to repair the public access road [KM 1116] north from the Alaska Highway into Silver Hart. Another is seeking YG funding support under its annual "Resource Access Roads Program (RARP)" for such road improvements as are necessary to enable the Company to fulfil its goals this year for and at Silver Hart.
The 2017 exploration season saw the effective completion of a modest diamond drilling and resampling program at Silver Hart carried out for the Company by Longford Exploration Services ["Longford"]. Longford has produced a 3D model of the results, and is continuing to enhance the model with the digitization and integration of all available historic information. This 3D model is assisting the Company in the identification of areas for infill drilling aligned with the goal of building a compliant resource, and to identify near surface targets for future bulk sampling.
Representatives of the Company, including Longford, were in Whitehorse and Watson Lake, Yukon, late in March for meetings with senior government officials and First Nations leadership. Their main agenda was stakeholder consultations over the Company's summer 2018 exploration program intentions and longer-term plans for Silver Hart. In addition, as an integral part of the Company's community relationship-building process, such contact focused upon road improvement requirements in connection with public funding support, and otherwise. As a result, important, new links with the Company's neighbours, and particularly with the incoming Chief and Council of the Liard First Nation in whose traditional territory the Company operates, were successfully established.
