First Nation to withdraw review application against Niobay's James Bay project

Niobay Metals Inc. said the Moose Cree First Nation is looking to withdraw its judicial review application in the Ontario Divisional Court against the company and the province.

The Moose Cree First Nation launched the application in March looking to annul the permit issued to the company in late January for its James Bay niobium project in Ontario.

NioBay said Oct. 18 that it expects to conclude a protection agreement for the proposed exploration program with the First Nation before year-end and start drilling at the project in early 2020.

"We are pleased with the decision of the chief and council of the MCFN and the community member to dismiss the legal proceeding, and to begin a relationship building process with the company," NioBay President and CEO Claude Dufresne said.
