Community Engagement

The Avanti Kitsault Project is situated in the Nass Area near the traditional territories of the Nisga'a Nation, Metlakatla First Nation, Gitanyow First Nation and Wilp Luuxhon. Alloycorp remains focused on maintaining its relationship with all communities in the region and is very mindful of the importance of meeting its commitments.

On June 3, 2014, a Co-operation and Benefits Agreement ("CBA") was announced with the Nisga'a Nation and Avanti Kitsault Mine Ltd ("Avanti Kitsault"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alloycorp, which marked a milestone in Alloycorp's relationship with the Nisga'a Nation.

Avanti Kitsault has also executed memoranda of understanding (collectively, "MOUs") with the Metlakatla, Gitanyow and Wilp Luuxhon, in which both parties agree to work together in a respectful and constructive manner. Avanti Kitsault has provided some capacity funding to these groups already and is committed to work with them to help realize training and employment opportunities.
