Okanagan Indian Band Gravel Pit Reactivation

OKIB Assets LP is proposing to reactivate an existing gravel pit on Okanagan Indian Reserve No. 1.  The OKIB pit is located on an extensive sand and gravel terrace.  The sands and gravels comprising this deposit are estimated to be approximately 12,000,000 tonnes and at least 40 to 50 m thick.  The entire aggregate operation is expected to encompass an area identified to be less than 40 hectares.  The present plan is to continue the development of the Lot 184 pit in a northeasterly direction, following the most suitable aggregate reserves.  4 operational phases have been identified within the aggregate reserves designed with progressive reclamation as mining progresses through the phases.  Lot 192 will be mined as the operation progresses through Phases 3 and 4.  OKIB Assets LP estimates that seasonally adjusted market demand for aggregates will be in the range of 150,000 to 250,000 tonnes per year.
