Wallbridge Mining suspends at Fenelon due to forest fire risk

Kitco News

Wallbridge Mining (TSX:WM) said today it temporarily evacuated the camp at its 100%-owned Fenelon Gold project and suspended all exploration activities on its Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend Property due to an emergency order from the Quebec Ministère des Ressources naturelles et des Forêts (Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests) prohibiting access to lands in the province impacted by forest fires.

Wallbridge’s flagship project, Fenelon Gold, is located on the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend Property in Québec’s Northern Abitibi region.

“Safety is of paramount importance at Wallbridge,” said Marz Kord, President and CEO. “All of our employees and contractors’ staff have been safely evacuated and we have taken appropriate measures to secure and mitigate risk to the Fenelon camp site. Exploration activities at Fenelon and our other projects will resume as soon as practicable.”
