Community OverviewTreasury Metals exploration site and offices are located approximately six kilometres west of the municipality of Wabigoon and about 20 kilometres east of the City of Dryden. Treasury has been very active in the area since its first year as an exploration company in 2008. One of our goals is to be Partners in Economic Development with the local municipalities and First Nations and Aboriginal communities.
Treasury Metals Inc. follows the PDAC Framework for Responsible Mining (see www.pdac.ca). Within that framework, the World Council for Sustainable Development states, "Corporate social responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and to contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large." Treasury works in a number of areas to achieve these goals. The company early on adopted a hire locally, purchase locally philosophy. We have had great success to date in hiring local people and purchasing goods and services from over 70 area businesses. Treasury Metals has participated in several First Nations conferences and symposiums on job opportunities in the mining and exploration businesses. In the past, the company has also conducted an Earth Science and Mineral Resources camp in conjunction with PDAC "Mining Matters" directed towards the youth in several First Nations.
Treasury is moving toward receiving final permits in Canada's environmental permitting processes for building a mine. In the spirit of partnering with and involving the local municipalities and First Nations, several project update meetings have been held in Wabigoon and Dryden and local Aboriginal communities. As the project develops and new information becomes available, we will continue to reach out to the local communities to answer questions and seek their input. As one of the leading exploration and development companies in Northwestern Ontario, we are excited about the future and we look forward to building a mine and creating opportunities in the region.
