recent pressrelease next pressrelease

(PresseBox) - Treasury Metals Inc. (TSX: TML) (?Treasury Metals? or the ?Company?) today announced as part of the mine permitting process, the Company formally submitted responses to the Information Requests along with a revised Environmental Impact Statement (?EIS?) to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (?CEAA?). The Company is pleased to report that on May 11, 2018, CEAA confirmed the EIS meets their completeness requirements to move onto the technical review of the documentation. This acceptance means the EIS is undergoing formal review by CEAA and the Goliath Gold Project is now within the legislated timeline period for the completion of Federal Environmental Assessments with approximately 34 weeks remaining of Government review time.

?We look forward to continuing to work with CEAA and all of the communities in the Dryden area as we progress towards a successful outcome of the Federal Environmental Assessment process for the Goliath Gold Project,? said Chris Stewart, Treasury?s President and Chief Executive as we continue to advance the project towards a production decision.?

The revised EIS contained amendments related to site layout and water management, and incorporated feedback from CEAA, as well as local and Aboriginal communities. Further, it incorporates all revisions of the technical information and comments provided within the Information Request responses during the engagement and consultation period. Community and Aboriginal engagement will continue through the technical review period.

PFS Update

The Prefeasibility Study (PFS) remains on track, with completion expected in July 2018. Sedgman is overseeing the overall preparation of the PFS. The PFS will incorporate a new mineral resource/reserve estimate (excluding drilling from 2018), a revised mine plan for both the underground and open pit, and updated cost and revenue parameters based on these new inputs. The initial work on the PFS analyzed several trade-off studies focused on identifying the optimal mining rate for both underground and open pit operations, evaluating the use of new, industry-leading mining technologies such as battery powered mobile equipment and tailings storage currently being implemented in newer operations in northern Ontario and updated design work.

?During my time at Kirkland Lake Gold, I became very familiar with the benefits of battery technology and believe it is the future of open pit and underground mining in Ontario. Along with the health benefits to Treasury?s employees, we also anticipate a reduction in our CO2 emissions of more than 5,000 tons/year from the underground operations at Goliath through a significant reduction in diesel fuel requirements. Based on the trade-off studies, the economic benefits related to battery powered underground equipment are also potentially quite compelling when viewed in the medium to long term.fficient mining operation as we can.?

Presently, the Company has two drilling rigs active at Goliath: one drill rig is in the Eastern Resource target area in close proximity to the proposed open pit area, and the second rig continues with Main Zone exploration targets currently in the central shoot area.
