Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. John Se­aberg re­ports

KLON­DEX MINES Ltd. has do­nated the Rock Creek lands to the Western Shoshone In­di­ans of Ne­vada. The lands were trans­ferred on Aug. 17, 2017, and a cel­e­bra­tion was held on Aug. 18, 2017, in Bat­tle Moun­tain, Nev.

About the Rock Creek lands

The Rock Creek lands are an area along the Rock Creek canyon about 20 miles north­east of Bat­tle Moun­tain, Nev. For thou­sands of years, the Rock Creek lands were tra­di­tion­ally used by the Western Shoshone for heal­ing cer­e­monies and a great source of medic­i­nal plants. The land pack­age in­cludes rock shel­ters, sweat lodges and other cer­e­mo­nial sites. The Rock Creek lands can only be ac­cessed by a dirt road and in­cludes five sec­tions to­talling 3,629 acres of pri­vate land. Klon­dex and the Western Shoshone have es­tab­lished covenants to em­power the Western Shoshone in the pro­tec­tion of these lands to en­sure there is a legacy to be used for gen­er­a­tions to come.

Paul Huet, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, com­mented: “Se­cur­ing the lands and do­nat­ing them to the Western Shoshone has been a fo­cus of the Klon­dex ex­ec­u­tive team and en­dorsed by the Klon­dex board of direc­tors since ac­quir­ing Hol­lis­ter. Work­ing along­side such an amaz­ing group like the Western Shoshone has been grat­i­fy­ing for ev­ery­one in­volved. Klon­dex rec­og­nizes that work­ing with key ex­ter­nal stake­hold­ers is crit­i­cal to our suc­cess. This con­tri­bu­tion will be re­mem­bered for many gen­er­a­tions and will se­cure the Rock Creek lands in­def­i­nitely for the Western Shoshone.”
