Project Description:
Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (Sabina) would like to request a renewal and extension to the Nunavut Water Board (NWB) water license 2BE-MLL1722 for the Wishbone-Malley Project (the Project), Kitikmeot Region, Nunavut. Sabina is requesting a renewal of the license for a further five years from March 27th, 2017 to March 26th, 2022. A completed renewal application package has been attached here. The renewal does not represent a change in scope for the Project. All activities as currently defined will be consistent with the activities undertaken in previous years and consistent with current authorizations. Sabina is requesting only a change to the term of the licence. This Project was last reviewed by the NPC during the 2017 renewal of this Licence. An NPC determination concluding that the Project was outside the area of an applicable land use plan and that wit was exempt from screening by the NIRB was issued on March 22, 2017 (Attachment 3; NPC File # 148494). The first Type B Water Licence for the Wishbone-Malley Project was issued in 2012. The Licence was renewed without amendment in 2017. This Project was initially screened by the NIRB in 2006 (see May 15, 2006 NIRB Screening Decision Report – Bolder Property – File No. 06EN033 (Attachment 4). A consolidated screening of all Dundee Precious Metals Inc.’s holdings in the Beechy Lake area (inclusive of the Back River and Wishbone claim areas) was completed in 2008 under NIRB file 08EA084 and a screening decision report issued by the NIRB on March 3, 2009 (Attachment 5).
