VANCOUVER, Feb. 24 /CNW/ - Stikine Energy Corp. (TSX.V: SKY) ("Stikine" or the "Company") announces that it has recently engaged several consultants to advance engineering and project work for the Nonda and Angus Frac Sand Projects. 

Wardrop, a Tetra Tech company, has been engaged to complete a preliminary economic assessment for the 100% owned Nonda Frac Sand Project, located 150 km west of the Horn River Basin, and to complete an internal scoping study for the 100% owned Angus Frac Sand Project, located 200 km south of the Montney Basin. Wardrop has assembled a qualified team to complete the scope of work, including project management, mining, process overview, access, infrastructure, financial analysis, capital and operating cost estimates. Independent market studies will also be conducted to provide input to the size and historic pricing of delivered frac sand to northeast BC, and broader markets in North America.

Sepro Mineral Systems of Langley, BC, has been engaged to complete engineering for the design of process plants at Nonda and Angus, including crushing, sand liberation, sorting, drying and associated systems and controls for operations at both project sites. Sepro successfully designed and delivered the pilot-plant currently processing Nonda material at a facility in Abbotsford, BC.

Ecosystems North, a subsidiary of Wildlife Infometrics Inc. of Mackenzie, BC has been engaged to undertake environmental assessment and baseline studies for both projects. The work will coordinate and focus on aquatic, terrestrial, climate, noise, social and other aspects of both project environments.

Stikine also announces that Mr. Robert (Bob) Lane, P.Geo has been engaged to provide initial resource estimates for Nonda and Angus and has been appointed Exploration Manager for both projects. Mr. Lane is based in Prince George, BC and was involved in the initial discovery and exploration of the Company's Nonda and Angus projects.

Stikine is focused on becoming a dominant frac sand supplier to British Columbia's developing shale gas industry. The Horn River, Liard and Montney Basins are large-scale gas plays led by major producers that currently rely on frac sand transported over great distances. Stikine's Nonda project is located in close proximity to the Horn River and Liard Basins and the Angus project lies in close proximity to the Montney Basin.
