Ascot Resources Ltd.: Mt. Margaret Update

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ascot Resources Mt. Margaret property is a porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold-silver deposit located 22.5 km southwest of Randle, Washington in Skamania county.

On August 24 2017 the United States Forest Service released a Draft Decision Notice & Finding of No Significant Impact related to two prospecting permits that were submitted by Ascot USA Inc. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Ascot Resources Ltd.). The draft decision is based on the detailed analysis of potential environmental impacts that are contained within a Modified Environmental Assessment related to the prospecting permits.

Publication of the legal notice related to the draft decision initiated a 45 day objection period. Objections will be accepted only from those who have previously submitted written comments regarding the proposed permits and the subject of the objections must relate to issues raised in the previously submitted comments. Following the resolution of any objections and publication of the Forest Service’s final decision notice, the Bureau of Land Management will issue its decision regarding whether to issue the prospecting permits. The BLM decision is also subject to a 45 day appeal period.
