Default Highbank (HBK.V) Update on Archeological Survey & Swamp Point North Aggregate Project

Highbank (HBK.V) Update on Archeological Survey & Swamp Point North Aggregate Project Permitting



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug. 6, 2013) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HBK)(V7O.F), (the "Company") is pleased to report on the progress of its resubmission of documentation for its Notice of Work Permit for the Swamp Point North, Portland Canal Aggregates project.

Archaeological Preliminary Field Reconnaissance

On July 26, 2013 Kleanza Consulting Ltd. ("Kleanza") of Terrace conducted an archaeological preliminary field reconnaissance ("PFR") of the Phase 1 development area for Highbank's proposed Swamp Point North aggregate quarry development (the "Development Area"). Stephanie Huddlestan, Archaeologist of Kleanza; Colleen Wesley (Metlakatla First Nation), and Anthony Moore, Lands Officer (Nisga'a Lisims Government) were on-site to conduct the PFR. Gary Musil, CFO and Jim Place, P.Geo.,/Directors of Highbank also accompanied the crew during the site visit.

The purpose of the PFR was to identify if there was any areas of archaeological potential within the proposed Development Area ("DA") in respect to culturally modified trees ("CMT's"), sub-surface deposits, midden exposure, rock shelters, pictographs and petroglyphs.

A flyover was first conducted to identify areas for the survey and access to the DA. It was determined that it was possible to access the site from the beach and old access/logging road that was expanded during the 2005-2006 seismic refraction survey, test pits and sonic drilling programs.

Kleanza reported: "No archaeological materials, features or areas of archaeological potential were identified within the Development Area. No further archaeological survey or monitoring work is recommended for the proposed DA, provided Highbank does not significantly amend the DA boundaries". The notes and map data collected during the PFR will be subject to further analysis, and a letter report will be prepared detailing the results. This letter report will be provided to Highbank Resources Ltd., Metlakatla and Nisga'a First Nations, Archaeology Branch of the Ministry of Forestry, Land, and Natural Resource Operations, and the Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MEM").

Mine and Management Plan

DMT Geosciences Ltd. (formerly Associated GeoSciences), with the assistance of Mr. Eric Beresford, P.Eng., has now provided Highbank with a revised mine and management plan. The text and maps/drawings encompasses the scope of work discussed and addresses the concerns raised by MEM. Micon International Limited is reviewing and compiling all the data and will be preparing the revised Notice of Work ("NoW") application for submission shortly.

Default B.C. Government Inks Land Agreement With Chinese-Owned Nexen for Proposed LNG Project

B.C. Government Inks Land Agreement With Chinese-Owned Nexen for Proposed LNG Project at Grassy Point Close to Highbank's (TSX :HBK) Swamp Point North Aggregate Project






VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 14, 2013) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HBK) (FRANKFURT:V7O) announces that Chinese-owned Nexen Inc. has inked an agreement with the B.C. Government that gives it the sole option to purchasing Crown land in northwestern B.C. more commonly known as Grassy Point, for a liquefied natural gas ("LNG") terminal.

Further to our news release of April 12, 2013, the Calgary-based company which was purchased by the state-owned China National Offshore Oil Corp. ('CNOOC") earlier this year, agreed to pay the province $12 million as a potential down payment to secure the deal for 615 hectares of land at Grassy Point. The land is located north of Prince Rupert and within 40 miles of Highbank's Swamp Point North, Portland Canal aggregate project. To view a map of three proposed LNG sites in B.C. click on the link:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/repor.../?from=8955271

Nexen joins about half a dozen companies that have located land for their proposed LNG projects in B.C. Three of those proposals (Australia-based Woodside, South Korea based SK E & S, and ExxonMobil) also include interest in Crown land in the Grassy Point area, for which the province continues discussions.

At a news conference Tuesday led by Premier Christy Clark, Nexen CEO and president Kevin Reinhart said while the acquisition of the land is a milestone, it is a first step in a long "journey." He pointed to the need for extensive public consultation (including with First Nations), a comprehensive environmental assessment and company approvals.

But Reinhart noted that its new owner, commonly known as CNOOC, is the largest importer of LNG into the growing natural gas market in China.

"We have an incredibly strong partnership that provides us with expertise, financial capacity, unique access to the Asian gas market and a strong track record of responsible development to turn this opportunity into a real project," said Reinhart.

Nexen owns 60 percent of the proposed LNG project at Grassy Point, dubbed Aurora LNG. The other 40 percent is owned by Japanese companies INPEX Corp. and JGC Corp.

Japan is the largest importer of LNG in the world by a wide margin, according to the International Gas Union's 2013 World LNG report.

Default Highbank (TSX VENTURE:HBK) Receives Approval for Licence of Occupation Expanded Land

Highbank (TSX VENTURE:HBK) Receives Approval for Licence of Occupation Expanded Land Tenure at Swamp Point North







VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 19, 2013) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HBK) (FRANKFURT:V7O)is pleased to announce that the application for the expanded tenure area of its Swamp Point North aggregate deposit has been approved by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations of B.C. This approval more than doubles, and increases the Gravel/Quarry Licence of Occupation ("LoO") area by an additional 72 hectares to a total 123 hectares and has the potential to significantly increase the resource.

It is not intended to mine from the expanded area at this time, as sufficient aggregate material has been located on the original LoO to satisfy demand in the Port of Prince Rupert area; however, it consolidates the Highbank land position, essential for forward planning and viability, ensures the Company's long term future and the ability to meet any expected future demands.

Highbank(TSX:HBK) Receives Comments on Notice of Work (NoW) Permit Application for Its Swamp Point North Aggregate Project




VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Dec 6, 2013) - Highbank Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HBK)(V7O.F). Further to our news release on October 29, 2013, the Company has received review comments from the Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MEM") indicating the results of MEM's review and future expectations for this particular project in regards only to the Mines Act permitting.

The Regional Director of MEM, Smithers has made a decision in regards to our project, to establish a Mine Development Review Committee (MDRC), pursuant to Part 10.3.1 of the Health, Safety and Reclamation Code for Mines in B.C., to meet in early 2014. The MDRC will provide an opportunity for the Company, pertinent regulators and First Nations to gather and discuss requirements of the project as it relates to both federal and provincial regulatory authorities.

The Company and Micon International Limited will be reviewing the response and begin compiling its reply as soon as possible in preparation for discussion with the MDRC.

Victor N. Bryant-CEO/President, James H. Place-Director, and Stan Spletzer, V.P. of Operations will be travelling to Prince Rupert on Tuesday. The Company will be meeting with representatives from the Metlakatla First Nation (Prince Rupert), site of the Petronas $18 billion proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility, on Lelu Island within the District of Port Edward on land administered by the Port of Prince Rupert. Also included in the meeting will be a representative from the Lax Kw'alaams Band (Port Simpson- nearby Grassy Point), where China's CNOOC Ltd. has secured exclusive rights with Japan's Inpex Corp. and JGC Corp. to examine building a LNG export plant and terminal. These discussions will center on further joint venture participations with the First Nations as they will be involved in the public consultations and potential partnerships of these builds. It was hoped that a similar meeting could be arranged with the heads of the Nisga'a Lisims Government at the same time, unfortunately they were not available as they are currently attending meetings in Ottawa.

Default Highbank (HBK.V) Resources Granted Production Permit for Swamp Point North Aggregate

Highbank (HBK.V) Resources Granted Production Permit for Swamp Point North Aggregate Project



$11 Billion LNG Project Seeks Concrete Answers

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Prince Rupert area is targeted for multiple massive construction projects including the $11 billion LNG facility at the Port of Prince Rupert. Malaysian petroleum giant Petronas has also declared a commitment to inject $36 billion into British Columbia LNG. Overall, the "announced" construction and infrastructure projects in the region add up to $60 billion.

On March 19, 2014, Highbank Resources (TSX-V:HBK) announced that it received a Notice of Work Permit approval for the Swamp Point North Aggregate Project 78 miles by sea north of Prince Rupert. This milestone is the culmination of six years development and collaboration with First Nations and government stakeholders, by management.

Highbank has an at-surface NI 43-101 compliant aggregate resource of 72 million tonnes, with initial off-take commitments. Aggregate is an industrial crushed rock that is the primary ingredient in concrete.

"This permit is a very big milestone for us," confirms Highbank CEO Victor Bryant in an exclusive interview with Financial Press, "we have been working on this, getting over the hurdles, for about six years. There is now a very straightforward path to production."

Aggregate mining generates dust and noise. Proposed projects often meet opposition from local residents wishing to preserve tranquility. The Swamp Point North project is in a completely isolated area, accessible only by boat and helicopter.

"Our location is one of our key advantages," states Bryant, "We are close to the epicenter of the Northern B.C. construction boom, and we are on tidewater. The cost advantages are significant. Aggregate is a bulk commodity. Transportation is a major cost factor. Highbank can load directly onto barges and ships whereas many of our competitors are forced to truck in the product."

Unlike gold, silver, copper, iron ore, an aggregate mine requires little in terms of preparation before market.

"Our product is very close to surface," states Bryant, "We only have about half a metre of material to remove before we are into the aggregate. The raw material will contain a few large rocks. But it is basically what we call 'free digging'. The large rocks will be put aside, and then it will be crushed and sized. Construction companies order different blends depending on what type of concrete they are making. Highbank aggregate is suitable for high-rise construction, although most of our end-use will be industrial."

The Highbank aggregate begins at the shoreline and flows back at surface on relatively flat land. The product is so close to the load-out facility that it can be delivered to the barges on a conveyor belt system.

Highbank's initial targeted production rate is 235,000 tonnes a year, but with the anticipated growth demand from the LNG terminals in 2015, the company may apply for a permit to expand production.

Unlike gold mines, which seem to start at about $100 million, the Capex of the Highbank Aggregate Project is only about $4 million because of the minimal amount of processing. The $4.0 million will be raised either through debt financing or a combination of debt and equity.

"We're looking at starting production in the summer of 2014," confirms Bryant, "The timing of our work permits is excellent, because the first phase of LNG construction is relatively small but it will ramp up dramatically in 2015. And we will be ready to deliver aggregate to Northern B.C. construction projects at very competitive prices. Being on tidal water that is open year round, gives us a huge competitive advantage."

Aggregate is the world's most mined material next to oil. 2013 global sales revenues are around $100 billion. Annual Canadian consumption of aggregate is 10 to 15 tons per person. Highbank's First Sales Contract has been signed with West Fraser Concrete for 100,000 tonnes.

"My guess is that about 80% of Highbank aggregate will be used in concrete," states Bryant, "but in the BC North there is a lot of clay, which is not stable to build on. So a lot of times the construction company will excavate the clay and use aggregate to back-fill, thereby creating a stable foundation for the construction and provide good drainage."

On November 2, 2012, Highbank announced the signing of a Cooperation Agreement with the Metlakatla First Nation with the stated objective of giving the Metlakatla the opportunity to participate in the economic benefits of an aggregate project on their traditional lands. Discussions with the other First Nation in the area, the Nisga'a have taken place and Highbank will also offer job training to suitably qualified candidates.

This Cooperation Agreement has been a key to Highbank's successful permitting process. The Metlakatla have been supportive of Highbank's application, and Highbank has pledged to provide Metlakatla the first opportunity to fill jobs and to securing contracts for goods and services.

"Highbank respects the Metlakatla and Nisga'a traditions and their longstanding commitment to preserve their way of life in their traditional territory," stated Bryant.

The Swamp Point Project represents an opportunity to invest in sustainable, innovative and broadly based renewed economic development activity for Northwest BC.

Highbank is currently trading at $0.15 with a market cap of $12 million
