In Cliffs’ Appeal of Mining Land Commissioner to Access KWG Lands For Road
Counsel for KWG Resources Inc. subsidiary Canada Chrome Corporation (“CCC”) has served notice that it will appeal the order of Honourable Justice Lederer of the Ontario Divisional Court dated April 28, 2014 that permitted the intervention of the Ontario government.
The April 28th decision by Justice Lederer, a justice with the Divisional Courts permitted the provincial Minister of the Attorney General to intervene on behalf of the Minister of Northern Development and Mines (MNDM) for 30 minutes in Cliffs Natural Resources’ appeal of the Ontario Mining and Lands Commissioner decision last September, 2013.
The Ministry of Northern Development and Mines though it sought to intervene before the courts said it would not take sides between the two competing parties and instead would there only to answer questions of law.
Cliffs had applied to the Mining and Lands Commissioner in order to gain access to lands for construction of an overland road to transport chromite from its proposed mining site. The only practical route traversed lands with mining claims held by Canada Chrome, a KWG subsidiary.
