VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Otis Gold Corp. (the “Company” or “Otis”) (TSX-V:OOO) is pleased to announce that the U.S. Forest Service (the “USFS”), as part of their ongoing agency review process, has issued a notice for a 30 day public comment period on the proposed Plan of Operation for a significantly expanded exploration program at the Kilgore Project, Clark County, Idaho (see Otis News Release dated October 23, 2017). The USFS will utilize any comments received to assist in guiding the completion of an Environmental Assessment and draft Record of Decision. The public will then have a further 45 day period to comment on the Record of Decision, following which the USFS will work to resolve any outstanding issues prior to issuing a final Decision Notice. Otis personnel and consultants are actively supporting the USFS in this review process.
Craig Lindsay, Otis President & CEO, stated: “The initial public comment period is an important part of the permitting process, and we are pleased the USFS is working within our planned timelines for the approval of our new Plan of Operation.
