  • Tunnel portals and the first 100 metres of tunnel (i.e. up to the first cross cut) within the Mitchell Valley

The article stated that, “a study of four new transboundary copper-gold projects in the BC-Alaska border area, commissioned by civil society organizations in March 2016, found that not one project was following the expert panel recommendations”.

Seabridge Gold’s KSM Project is one of the four new transboundary projects referred to in this study, but Seabridge is following the Panel’s recommendations.
