Vancouver, B.C., May 29, 2018. Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V) ("Serengeti" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that Kwanika Copper Corporation (“KCC”), a private company jointly-owned by Serengeti Resources (65%) and POSCO DAEWOO Corporation (35%), has entered into an Exploration Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Takla Lake First Nation (“Takla”). The Agreement establishes a mutually beneficial, cooperative and productive relationship whereby communication and collaboration between the Takla and KCC are held paramount, providing the parties certainty in their relationship throughout the advancement of the Kwanika project.
Chief of the Takla First Nation John French stated, “By using this model in the traditional lands of the Takla Nation, we have an agreement that gives certainty to the Takla and KCC. The Company can conduct its activities, and the Takla people know that our values and objectives are going to be respected. With this agreement between industry and the Takla, we bring our common interests together for mutual benefit.”
D. W. Moore, President & CEO of Serengeti and President of KCC stated, “We look forward to working closely with the Takla as we advance the Kwanika Project and will continue to build trust and respect with the First Nation through communication and continued involvement. Agreements such as this reduce uncertainty for both the Company and the First Nation community and represent a valuable step in the progression of any project.”
