Werner Lake Update
CBLT Inc. (“CBLT”) has informed GEMC that it will not be proceeding with the Werner Lake acquisition at this time as previously announced on November 26, 2020. Road access to Werner Lake is only from Ontario through Manitoba and back into Ontario to reach the property. This access issue means CBLT has not been able to, and for the foreseeable future will not be able to, complete its technical due diligence until the easing of restrictions related to COVID-19, and as a result management cannot deliver a complete due diligence report to CBLT’s board of directors.
