BRITISH COLUMBIA — Columbia Yukon Explorations of West Vancouver has signed a traditional knowledge protocol with several First Nations bands that covers the company's Storie molybdenum property near Cassiar. The Dease River First Nation, Daylu Dena Council, Kwadacha First Nation and Kaska Dena Council (collectively the BC Kaska) are signatories to the deal.
The protocol will assist in establishing the practices and procedures for the collection, management, ownership and integration of Kaska traditional knowledge with regard to the exploration and development of the Storie property. The BC Kaska have authorized the Dena Kayeh Institute as their representative to gather and produce a traditional knowledge report and recommendations as part of Columbia Yukon's application for an environmental assessment certificate.
