Metal workers very pleased government approved Sisson Mine Project

New Brunswick’s metal working employers and their employees are very pleased that the provincial government has issued a positive environmental impact assessment Certificate of Determination to Sisson Mines Ltd.

Northcliff Resources Ltd. (“Northcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX: NCF) announced the approval today – for their Sisson Tungsten-Molybdenum Project.

“With Premier Gallant’s support and the support of our communities, we are encouraged that this major economic development project is on track to help create work for hundreds of people for many years, and showcase our mining expertise and trades to the world” said Joel Richardson, Executive Director of The Metal Working Association of New Brunswick (MWANB).

“The Premier’s recent throne speech acknowledged that the best way to get government finances in order is through economic growth and by creating the best possible conditions for job creation,” explained Richardson. “This regulatory approval is a prime example of how government can positively impact upon on a company’s ability to create jobs, invest in our communities and help families.”

“Economic growth from private sector is a much more practical solution to generate new revenues than imposing higher taxes on people and their employers,” explained Richardson. “Responsible resource development through thoughtful environment stewardship and economic balance puts us on path to returning to a have-province from a will-not province.”

As part of the EIA process, the Sisson EIA Report was submitted to both the federal Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (“CEAA”) and the New Brunswick Department of Environment and Local Government in July, 2013. A federal decision from CEAA is pending. Permit applications for construction and operation will be finalized and submitted following a positive federal decision.

Concurrent with the ongoing environmental assessment process, Northcliff continues to work to secure offtake interest in Sisson’s products and arrange financing for development and construction.

The Metal Working Association of New Brunswick (MWANB) represents the provinces local firms and trades people involved in custom machining and fabrication of industrial solutions. The Association is a division of the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), the country’s largest industry association.
