Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 20, 2022) – CARLYLE COMMODITIES CORP. (CSE: CCC) (CSE: 1OZA) (OTC Pink: DLRYF) (“carlyle“or the”Society“) announces that it has filed a motion and supporting affidavits with the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the “Petition“) as part of the Company’s Work Notice and Restoration Program Permit Application (the “Permit application“) for a 5-year area-based license to conduct exploration activities on its 100% Newton Project located in the Clinton Mining Division of the Province of British Columbia (the “Project Newton“) held through its wholly owned subsidiary Isaac Newton Mining Corp.
The Newton Project Petition
The Newton project has been the subject of at least seven previous exploration permits, including over 30,000 m of exploration drilling costing over $12,000,000. However, following its acquisition by Carlyle and the filing of the Permit Application on February 10, 2021, the Company experienced significant delays with the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation (the “MinistryThe ministry linked these delays to a Strategic Engagement Agreement (the “WED“) entered into between the Province of British Columbia and the Tsilhqot’in Nation. Neither Carlyle nor the former owners of the Newton Project are parties to the SEA.
The motion seeks declarations from the Court that the SEA does not affect existing law regarding the Crown’s duty to consult with Aboriginal groups, it does not supersede obligations of procedural fairness owed to Carlyle, and that the rights of Carlyle were violated. He also seeks a declaration that the SEA is improperly interfering with the exercise of discretion by the Director of Licensing (or his delegate) and asks the Court to order the Director of Licensing (or his delegate) to make a decision on the permit application without further delay. .
Morgan Good, President and CEO of Carlyle, said: “It is deeply concerning that after nearly a year this permit has still not been issued, and the ministry cannot point to any substantive issues that caused the delay. We believe that Carlyle made every reasonable effort to work constructively with the Department and the Tsilhqot’in Nation, and had no choice but to seek the assistance of the Court. While we fully respect the Crown’s duty to consult with Indigenous groups, the Crown must always obey the law and must not lose sight of the legal rights and interests of third parties. »
