Seabridge Gold And Gitanyow Wilps Enter Into Agreement Regarding KSM Project

Trading Symbols:   

TSX: SEA  NYSE: SA 

TORONTO, June 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Seabridge Gold reported today that it has entered into an agreement with the Gitanyow Wilps represented by the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs Office (the "Gitanyow Huwilp") in respect of Seabridge Gold's KSM Project, located in northwest British Columbia. Under the agreement, Seabridge agrees to provide funding for certain programs relating to wildlife, fish and water quality monitoring to address some of the concerns raised by the Gitanyow Huwilp, as well as for a committee to establish a means of maintaining communications about KSM Project related issues.

Seabridge Chairman and CEO Rudi Fronk comments that:

"The Gitanyow, whose territory is downstream of the KSM Project, sought certainty that their lands and resources would be protected. Through this agreement, Seabridge is providing a mechanism to monitor the potential impacts of the Project on their resources, which we believe will give greater comfort that the KSM Project will perform as projected, and will assist the Gitanyow Huwilp in their efforts to maintain and improve wildlife and fish populations in the region that might be impacted by the Project. While we believe we have effectively addressed these issues in the project design, we also understand and respect the concerns of the Gitanyow Huwilp. Having addressed these matters in this agreement, we are pleased to have been able to achieve greater certainty for the Project."

On the basis of this certainty, the Gitanyow Huwilp and Seabridge hope to build a respectful and productive relationship as the KSM Project develops.

Seabridge holds a 100% interest in several North American gold resource projects. The Company's principal assets are the KSM property located near Stewart, British Columbia, Canada and the Courageous Lake gold project located in Canada's Northwest Territories. For a breakdown of Seabridge's mineral reserves and resources by project and category please visit the Company's website at http://www.seabridgegold.net/resources.php.

All reserve and resource estimates reported by the Corporation were calculated in accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system. These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
