TORONTO , Dec. 22, 2014 /CNW/ - Seabridge Gold announced today that the Federal Minister of the Environment, the Honourable Leona Aglukkaq , has issued her Environmental Assessment Decision Statement for Seabridge's KSM Project. The Statement endorses the conclusions of the KSM Comprehensive Study Report (CSR) prepared by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency ("CEAA") which found that the KSM Project is not likely to result in significant adverse effects on the environment. The federal decision is consistent with the Province of British Columbia's approval of KSM which was received on July 30 , 2014. 

Seabridge Gold Chairman and CEO Rudi Fronk stated that "with this positive decision, the Canadian Government has concluded its lengthy and rigorous environmental assessment process for the KSM Project, which began in 2009. I would like to thank Minister Aglukkaq for her decision and also acknowledge the professionalism of her technical team, led by the dedicated staff from CEAA, who were ably supported by representatives from Natural Resources Canada, including the Major Projects Management Office, Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans and Transport Canada. I would also like to acknowledge the continuing support of the Nisga'a Nation as well as the other First Nations and local communities whose involvement made substantial contributions to the achievement of this significant milestone. Finally, I want to thank the outstanding efforts made by our talented environmental and permitting team at Seabridge who deserve enormous credit for this accomplishment."

"Minister Aglukkaq's decision substantiates the findings of the Government of British Columbia and our own firm belief that KSM is a well-designed, environmentally responsible project which is technically feasible and offers significant economic benefits to both British Columbia and Canada . The federal and provincial approvals impose important conditions on the development, operation and closure of KSM which we fully support. In addition to meeting these requirements, we pledge to continue the open, forthright and respectful dialogue with all interested parties that characterized the approval process. We regard these approvals as initiating the next step in our deepening relationship with BC's northwest in which we strive to ensure that KSM meets the legitimate expectations of local communities as well our shareholders." 

The KSM Project underwent a joint harmonized federal-provincial environmental assessment review as outlined by the British Columbia Environmental Assessment Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.  This process began in March 2008 with the initiation of the provincial review; the federal review process commenced in July 2009.  The provincial process concluded in July 2014 with the receipt of the BC Environmental Assessment Certificate.

Seabridge holds a 100% interest in several North American gold resource projects. The Company's principal assets are the KSM property located near Stewart, British Columbia , Canada and the Courageous Lake gold project located in Canada's Northwest Territories . For a breakdown of Seabridge's mineral reserves and resources by project and category please visit the Company's website at http://www.seabridgegold.net/resources.php.

All reserve and resource estimates reported by the Corporation were calculated in accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system.
