Shell Pilot Project Agreement (PPA) and Forest Restoration Project Agreement

Work is coming to a conclusion in finalizing the PPA with Shell Canada. This small project agreement is anticipated to lead relatively seamlessly into a larger agreement as contemplated by the Letter of Intent if NLG and Shell Canada choose to pursue a larger forest restoration project.

Educating

Ecosystem Restoration Associates (ERA) - Forest Restoration

Work is continuing on developing a framework for establishing a long term funding source for the restoration of the Nass bottomlands ecosystems, through the sequestration of Carbon. NLG Forestry Staff are developing a methodology with ERA which will work best for the restoration of the forest over the long term. Important components include, raising capital to perform the on-ground works, ensuring funding for multiple maintenance activities occur over the years, identifying and managing the risks, and identifying and developing revenue opportunities.

Northwest Transmission Line (NTL)

NLG received the press release from Nova Gold Resources Inc., on Monday (November 26) morning announcing the suspension of the Galore Creek copper-gold project construction activities due to raising capital costs and a longer construction schedule than was anticipated. This, combined with reduced operating margins as a result of the stronger Canadian dollar, would make the project uneconomic at current consensus long-term metal prices.
