AQUILA RESOURCES PROVIDES PERMITTING UPDATE


Post

TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Aquila Resources Inc. (TSX: AQA, OTCQB: AQARF) (“Aquila” or the “Company”) After years of environmental baseline work and a thorough review process including comment periods and public hearings, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (“EGLE”) issued the Back Forty Mine a Wetlands Permit in June, 2018. Unfortunately, our wetlands permit was overturned due to a decision we believe is a misunderstanding of the information concerning the potential for indirect wetlands impacts.

Barry Hildred, President & CEO of Aquila, commented, “Obviously, we are disappointed by the Judge’s decision. The Company is evaluating its alternatives, which include the submission of an updated permit application or appealing the decision to the EGLE environmental review panel. Aquila has worked diligently to limit impacts to surrounding wetlands and is only directly impacting 11.2 acres of regulated wetlands. Having reviewed the decision, we believe that Aquila will be able to resolve the cited issues and remain confident that Back Forty will be a safe, disciplined operation that promotes and supports local community socio-economic development and is protective of the environment.
