The Ministers approval of the EA is a significant de-risking milestone for the Goliath Gold Project and our shareholders. The Company has made major commitments and efforts to advance the Project, and we would like to thank the local communities, the representatives of the local Indigenous communities, the public, and the various government agencies for their work and participation throughout the EA. We look forward to the continued advancement of the Project, said Greg Ferron, Treasury Metals Inc.s Chief Executive Officer.

The decision was made following a thorough and science-based environmental assessment process with input received from Indigenous groups, the public, and federal departments including Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Health Canada, and Natural Resources Canada and various agencies across all provincial ministries. The report concluded that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects when mitigation measures are taken into account. The federal ministers decision states that Treasury Metals Inc. can now proceed with obtaining final permits and authorizations required to begin construction.

Mark Wheeler, Project Director, stated, The project team worked closely across multiple government ministries since 2014 alongside Indigenous communities and local public stakeholders. The EA approval allows us to devote full focus on the remaining technical studies and permitting, and to prepare for a future construction decision.

Treasury continues work on de-risking and optimizing the Goliath Gold Project through 2019, making significant progress on advanced engineering studies, community engagement, and construction permits applications, and ultimately, towards a construction decision.
