WESA, part of the
BluMetric Environmental group of companies, and LVM, a soil,
materials and environmental engineering consulting group,
have completed the field work related to a $1.6-million
contract for a hydrogeological and geotechnical study for the Century Iron's

This study, to be completed jointly by WESA and LVM, will be part of the Environmental Impact Statement, which is a
prerequisite for environmental permitting. The study will also include
ground water modeling to evaluate dewatering requirements, and defining
the pit slope and bench angles to support the Bankable Feasibility Study
for the Joyce Lake DSO Project.

The Joyce Lake DSO Project is a joint venture between the Company and WISCO International
Resources Development & Investment Limited located close
to Schefferville, Que. Annual DSO production is targeted at two
million tonnes of per year. A Bankable feasibility study is expected to
be completed early in 2015.
