Appeal against MWS’ water licence dismissed

[] — First Uranium Corporation on Thursday said the appeal lodged against Mine Waste Solutions’ (MWS) water use licence had been dismissed.

The company said this vindicated its decision to continue operating the project, despite the appeal lodged by the Federation for a Sustainable Environment (FSE) in March 2011.

First Uranium said it received official notification that the Water Tribunal has dismissed the appeal after it found that it had no jurisdiction to hear the case.

“As a result the Water Tribunal has closed its file on the matter,” First Uranium said.
