Klatassine Resources passes forestry audit

VICTORIA – An audit of Klatassine Resources Ltd. found the company met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act, according to a report released today.

“Klatassine’s forest practices were well done, but they didn’t submit their annual report on where they harvested to government,” said board chair Al Gorley. “The board is pleased that Klatassine has since submitted its report.”

The audit examined forest planning and practices near Palmer Lake, about 30 kilometres north of Alexis Creek, within the Williams Lake Timber Supply Area, in the Tl’etinqox-T’in’s traditional territory.

The audit examined activities carried out between Sept. 1, 2008 and Sept. 21, 2010.

The licence is part of a Forest and Range Opportunity Agreement between the Tl’etinqox-tin national government and the B.C. government.

The Forest Practices Board is B.C.’s independent watchdog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government. The board audits forest and range practices on public lands and appropriateness of government enforcement. It can also make recommendations for improvement to practices and legislation.
