Storm Exploration (TSXV:STRM) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Naicatchewenin First Nation.

In a news release, the company said the MOU relates to its Gold Standard Project in northwest Ontario.

As part of the MOU, Storm Exploration will contribute to a community fund that amounts to similar exploration expenditures it will undertake.

“This is an important milestone for the company,” Bruce Counts, CEO of Storm Exploration, said in a statement. “Storm firmly believes that the participation of local first nations is critical to the success of a project, and I am looking forward to working with the Naicatchewenin on the exploration and development of the Gold Standard property.”

The Gold Standard is in the Manitou-Stormy Lake greenstone belt and hosts three historical small-scale gold-mining operations dated between 1901 and 1903. In 2022, the company confirmed the high-grade nature of the old workings with grab samples that returned grades up to 166 g/t gold.

Shares of Storm Exploration are unchanged at C$0.06 as of 9:53 a.m. ET.
