VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(Marketwired – Sept. 15, 2015) – Saturn Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SMI)(FRANKFURT:SMK) (“Saturn” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to the news release dated September 02, 2015 the Company has finished a site visit to the locations to determine, among other things, ground conditions, crop status and access with the objective of initiating the drilling program. The Company discussed the accessibility to the drill locations with the Rural Municipality of Porcupine Plain (“RM”) and local landowners.
Due to large amounts of precipitation in the area over the past months, the Company and its partners will proceed with the logistics of the proposed drilling program as soon as the freeze up starts and the ground conditions allow for heavy-duty transport of trucks and equipment. The exploration area is near graveled roads, but it is necessary that all trucks and service providers have full and reliable access to the drilling locations.
The Company wants to prevent unnecessary costs and stay focused on the economics of an efficient drilling program. In discussions with the RM the Company was advised that upon freeze up the RM would be in a better position to allow side road transport and would work with the Company for access in utilizing the RM’s road equipment to clear side roads. It is the intention of the Company to closely monitor ground conditions in the Bannock Creek area and maintain close communication with the RM and local landowners in order to initiate the drilling program in a timely manner.
