Alderon is pleased to announce that it has received the results of the updated preliminary economic assessment on the Rose Deposit of the Kamistiatusset (“Kami”) Iron Ore Project in Western Labrador. The Updated PEA is an update to a re-scoped preliminary economic assessment on the Kami Project that was issued on March 14, 2017 (the “March 2017 PEA”). The March 2017 PEA was prepared based on a plan to use the depleted pit at the Wabush Scully Mine as part of a tailings solution for the Kami Project. The Wabush Scully Mine was recently acquired by a third party who has stated its intention to re-open the mine. As a result, the Updated PEA has been prepared to remove the components related to the Wabush Scully Mine.
