LONDON, ON, July 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Fortune Minerals Limited (TSX: FT) (OTCQX: FTMDF) ("Fortune" or the "Company") (www.fortuneminerals.com) announces that it inaccurately referred to two Tahltan Nation employees as "members of the Tahltan Heritage Resources Environmental Assessment Team" in the earlier Fortune News Release dated July 16, 2013.
The relevant excerpt from the original news release was as follows:
"Members of the Tahltan and Gitxsan First Nations have been hired for various archaeological, drilling and hydrology roles and contribute to the knowledge of the EA process and consultation. The archaeological team includes two members of the Tahltan Heritage Resources Environmental Assessment Team - a technical working group comprised of community and technical experts that reports to the Tahltan Nation through the Tahltan Central Council."
The corrected statement is as follows:
"Members of the Tahltan and Gitxsan First Nations have been hired for various archaeological, drilling and hydrology roles that will contribute to the collection of baseline environmental data for the EA process."
