Falco Reaches Another Major Milestone and Confirms Admissibility of Its Horne 5 Project’s Environmental Impact Assessment

27.03.2024 | 12:00 Uhr | GlobeNewswire

MONTREAL, March 27, 2024 - Falco Resources Ltd. (TSX.V: FPC) ("Falco" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the receipt of confirmation of the admissibility of its Environmental Impact Assessment ("EIA") for the Horne 5 Project located in Rouyn-Noranda (the "Admissibility") from the Ministry of the Environment, the Fight Against Climate Change, Wildlife and Parks ("MEFCCWP").

Since the initial EIA filing in 2018, Falco has completed extensive field work and studies, in addition to providing the documentation in order to respond to questions and requests for information raised by the MEFCCWP. Driven by ESG principles, the EIA was conducted by a multidisciplinary team comprised of Falco's employees, experts and partners, and highlights the Horne 5 Project's benefits and impacts on its physical, biological and human environments. The EIA includes various measures to avoid, mitigate or compensate for these impacts, and to enhance the project's overall benefits, in a strong corporate governance environment. The EIA and all related documentation are publicly available on the Environmental Assessment Register of the MEFCCWP.

Luc Lessard, President and Chief Executive Officer of Falco noted: "In addition to the recent conclusion of the Operating License and Indemnity Agreement with Glencore Canada Corporation on January 23, 2024, the Horne 5 Project's EIA Admissibility from the MEFCCWP constitutes another significant milestone in advancing closer to the development and realization of the Horne 5 Project. Falco's team has been working extremely hard on the environmental permitting process, and the EIA Admissibility provides the path forward for the advancement of the Project. Although important steps remain, we strongly believe in the Horne 5 Project as a green and world-class polymetallic project that will benefit the surrounding communities. We would like to thank everyone involved at the MEFCCWP for their work and continued assistance throughout this process. Falco would also like to thank the communities of Rouyn-Noranda for their engaged and active participation and continuous support."

Public Hearing Process

The EIA Admissibility allows Falco to progress towards the public hearing process to be hosted by the Bureau d'audiences publiques sur l'environnement ("BAPE") following the issuance by the MEFCCWP of a BAPE mandate to conduct such public hearing process, which notably involves a 45-day public information period, beginning April 24, 2024, in addition to a 4-month public hearing process. Falco's stakeholders will be invited to this public information period which will allow them to meet Falco's team, ask questions and obtain information on the Horne 5 Project. For more information, please refer to the following MEFCCWP link: https://www.ree.environnement.gouv.qc.ca/index.asp

Since 2019, Falco has been interacting and working with its host milieu and stakeholders, including its Consultation Committee. The comments, questions and ideas collected during these discussions have helped Falco gain a better understanding of the challenges and concerns of our stakeholders in order to develop a proposal for the Horne 5 Project that fosters the harmonious cohabitation of all stakeholders in the region with this mining project of a new generation.

Hélène Cartier, Vice President, Environment, Sustainable Development and Community Relations added: "We are extremely grateful to our stakeholders and host communities, who participate in our consultation activities and initiatives, allowing us to develop a great project for the Rouyn-Noranda region. We remain committed to continuing to develop a collaborative project and making it a source of pride for our communities. Our team is ready and proud to initiate the BAPE process."
