Noront and First Nation sign advanced agreement
Noront Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: NOT) recently announced it has signed an Exploration and Project Advancement Agreement with the Marten Falls First Nation (MFFN). The Agreement compensates MFFN for work that has been completed on their traditional land and outlines a one-year process that will be used to negotiate a Pre-Development Agreement for the Eagles Nest nickel-copper-platinum-palladium mine located in northern Ontario.

As part of the Agreement, and by fulfilling certain obligations and arrangements, MFFN becomes a shareholder of Noront Resources. The company has agreed to issue 311,111 shares of Noront stock valued at $0.225, the closing price on April 12, 2017, subject to TSX Venture approval.

Chief Bruce Achneepineskum described the agreement as “a step towards a prosperous and sustainable future for both the youth and community of Marten Falls First Nation.”

“We are excited to be taking this next step with our friends in Marten Falls,” said Noront President and CEO Alan Coutts. “It marks the beginning of a long-term relationship that will provide opportunity and mutual benefits for both parties.”
