FISSION URANIUM CORP. (” Fission ” or ” the Company “) is pleased to be actively collaborating and communicating with the Clearwater River Dene Nation (“CRDN”) and other rights-holders as it continues to advance the PLS project in Saskatchewan, Canada .
Earlier this fall, Fission shared a summary of its engagement approach, which can be found on the new Engagement Page of the Fission website. The approach has been designed to reflect feedback that Fission receives from rights-holders, including CRDN, related to their engagement expectations, capacity needs, and preferred timelines. The engagement approach guides how Fission shares information with rights-holders and stakeholders, how information is collected and shared with Fission, and how that information or feedback is used to inform key, iterative phases of the environmental impact assessment process.
Fission looks forward to continuing to work closely with CRDN and other rights-holders to ensure that potential impacts, both negative and positive, are identified and evaluated by combining western science with Indigenous knowledge. By working collaboratively with CRDN at every stage, Fission aims to maximize the potential for community benefits and avoid or minimize any potential negative impacts.
Ross McElroy , President and CEO for Fission, commented, ” Fission continues to actively and productively engage with rights-holders and stakeholders in the Patterson Lake Area. Our relationships are built on mutual trust, which has been achieved through regular, open communication to date. We have an engagement and capacity agreement in place with CRDN which includes development of a community-led Indigenous Rights & Knowledge Study and Cultural Impact Assessment, and we meet regularly with CRDN to confirm they have the information and support they need from Fission to progress their study goals. Results from these studies will be incorporated into the ongoing assessment of Fission’s Patterson Lake South Project and will assist in furthering our relationship with the community .”
Fission and CRDN recently filmed a video featuring Fission CEO, Ross McElroy , and CRDN Chief, Teddy Clark , that provides information about the intent of the Engagement and Capacity Agreement. The video can be viewed on the company’s Engagement Page .
