Doubleview applying for another pre-trial injunction for Hat Project in Tahltan territory

Doubleview is re-applying for a pre-trial injunction against protesters at its Hat Project in Tahltan traditional territory.

Last year, a group of Tahltan elders, including Tahltan Central Council president Chad Day, prevented the mining company from continuing exploratory work.

The project site is at the Sheslay River Valley, northwest of Telegraph Creek.

In an interview last year, Day said the valley is an important cultural, spiritual and traditional use area for the Tahltan.

He also noted there are many grave sites of Tahltan members in the area.

Earlier this year, Doubleview was denied an application for a pre-trial injunction by the BC Supreme Court to remove the protesters.

But in a statement released today, Doubleview says it has revised its application, which takes into account a low potential for archeological impacts.

Doubleview also says it’s continuing with its application for a permanent injunction.
