ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, Feb. 7, 2017 /CNW/ - Granada Gold Mine Inc. (TSX-V: GGM) (OTCPINK: GBBFF) (Frankfurt B6D) (the "Company" or "Granada Gold Mine") today announced that it has signed a Letter of Intent ("LOI") with the Temagami First Nation ("TFN") and Teme-Augama Anishnabai ("TAA") that would provide Granada Gold Mine the opportunity to evaluate brownfield sites on TFN's/TAA's traditional territory for the potential of redevelopment.
The LOI will allow the company to assess the technical, operation and financial feasibility of installing a mill for processing precious metal bearing ores within an existing brownfield site in close proximity to Temagami First Nation and Teme-Augama Anishnabai.
"Granada Gold Mine wishes to respect TFN's/TAA's goal of taking care of and protecting their homelands known as n'Daki Menan. We understand that any contemplated milling project utilizing TFN's/TAA's traditional territory should be a positive development that minimizes the outstanding environmental condition of an existing brownfield site in addition to minimizing environmental effects that are associated with a new metal processing mill locating within the brownfield site," said Frank Basa, President and Chief Executive Officer.
