First Nations Land Claims, British Columbia
The governments of British Columbia and Canada have entered into two Agreements in Principle (AIPs) with the Kitselas and Kitsumkalum first Nations. While not legally binding, the respective AIPs set out Kitselas and Kitsumkalum lands, which will consist of current Crown and Indian Reserve lands that Kitselas or Kitsumkalum will own in the future, and over which they will have certain governance authorities once their respective Final Agreements take effect. It is expected that the Final Agreements will take several years to negotiate and implement, and once approved, will be legally binding on all parties.
BCM Resources has been advised by the Province of British Columbia that several of its Mineral Claim tenures, are located on proposed Kitselas or proposed Kitsumkalum lands. Although Kitselas and Kitsumkalum will be the owners of the land and subsurface resources under the terms of a Final Agreement, the Company's tenures will continue in accordance with provincial law and will continue to be administered by the province in accordance with provincial law and the Final Agreement.
In the even the Company forfeits, abandons or surrenders any of the affected tenures, they will not be re-administered to the Company.
The mineral claim tenures attributed to BCM Resources Corporation in the AIPs are as follows:
|501770 Moly Ck||514220 Shan 2||543709 Shan 4|
|514199 Moly Ck||514265 Shan 3||543710 Shan 5|
