Tsilhqot’in National Gov’t tells Amarc to look for minerals somewhere else

The Tsilhqot’in National Government says a mining firm and the BC government should walk away from a proposed project and look elsewhere in its territory for minerals.

The TNG has issued a news release saying it is increasingly concerned about the proposed Ike project by Amarc Resources and its investor Thompson Creek Metals.

The Tsilhqot’in says they are opposed to a recent application for more exploration in the Upper Taseko Watershed which is home to high-value wilderness habitat and species like mule deer and grizzly bears.

Xeni Gwet’in Chief Roger William says they are open to talks about assessing mineral potential outside the watershed, but says they remain strongly opposed to mineral development or exploration in areas key to support their health and livelihoods.
