GPM METALS PROVIDES AN UPDATE ON THE WALKER GOSSAN PROJECT AFFECTED BY THE COVID RESTRICTIONS IN NORTHERN TERRITORY, AUSTRALIA
Toronto – February 14, 2022 – GPM Metals Inc. (TSXV:GPM) (the “Company” or “GPM”) provides an update from the Northern Land Council.
The Northern Land Council (NLC) recently announced that all meetings scheduled by the NLC will be postponed until further notice. The Covid pandemic has arrived in the Northern Territory and the NLC has taken a cautious approach and has suspended all NLC meetings until the COVID-19 situation stabilises.
GPM Metals supports the decision by the NLC, and for its part the Northern Land Council has indicated that when the suspension is lifted, they will endeavour to get back to normal as soon as possible.
GPM Metals had planned to complete approved work programs on 3 separate tenements and finalise access to a new area on ELA 30956 during the second half of 2022. The suspension of meetings by the NLC is likely to impact our proposed timing of these activities.
At this point we are ready to launch our field work programs during the second half of 2022, but we respect the need to ensure the safety of the Traditional Land Owners and the staff of the NLC in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The moment the Territory is open for business the Company will resume our program.
