QUÉBEC CITY, QUÉBEC–(Marketwired – Aug. 31, 2017) – Junex Inc. (the “Company” or “Junex”) (TSX VENTURE:JNX) is pleased to announce that a meeting has taken place with the three chiefs of the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi, the assembly of elected representatives of the three Mi’gmaq communities of Gesgapegiag, Gespeg and Listuguj.
At the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi’s request, it was agreed to begin a consultation process to allow the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi to consult the population of the three Mi’gmaq communities of Gaspésie. That consultation will last four months, during which Junex will not undertake any exploration activities. This consultation process follows a specific mandate from Junex’s board of directors to launch a dialogue with the First Nations, which is in line with the Company’s Sustainable Development Policy that favours development that is respectful of host communities through a transparent approach and constant dialogue.
Junex emphasizes that Galt is a conventional project and that putting it into production does not require any massive hydraulic fracturing.
Junex is a Quebec SME that seeks to be a catalyst in accessing Quebec’s oil and gas resources, while ensuring that their development becomes a important means of creating collective wealth for Quebeckers. Junex’s operations are conducted in a responsible manner, in strictest compliance with the rules, laws and regulations that govern oil and gas activities. To that end, every day it takes all measures to minimize the environmental impact of its activities.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
