Sudbury, Ontario, May 11, 2015 - Northern Superior Resources Inc. (TSXV:SUP) (“Northern Superior”) is pleased to provide the following update on its litigation against the Ontario Government regarding its Thorne Lake, Meston Lake and Rapson Bay properties. Further to the Company’s press release dated April 23, 2015, a copy of which is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) or the Company’s website (www.nsuperior.com), the trial date in the litigation against the Ontario Government has been moved to October 5th from June 1st. The Company is pleased that the case will still be heard by the Superior Court judge who has been case managing the litigation to date. The new date is the result of the repeated failure of the Ontario Government to provide on a timely and complete basis information Ontario is required to provide as part of the discovery process and which was due in mid- March. In response to these actions by Ontario, the Company will be bringing an application to the Court seeking to compel the remaining information from Ontario.
The Government took issue with certain documents and correspondence relating to the case having been posted on the Company’s website. The Company removed the documents and gave the Ontario Government a week (to May 8) to articulate the precise nature of its objection so that the parties could explore a reasonable compromise on the issue. Unfortunately, Ontario refused to provide anything beyond broad assertions and as such the material at issue consisting of the parties’ briefs prepared for the recent Mediation, a letter addressed to the recently appointed MNDM Deputy Minister and his response (a response that took over three weeks to receive) have been reposted on the Company’s website. Northern Superior remains of the view that all stakeholders must be kept as fully informed as possible on developments in the case and the approach of the Ontario Government and will continue its efforts in this regard.
Northern Superior Resources is pleased to announce that NERA Economic Consulting has agreed to provide an expert report on valuation of the Company’s properties for use in the litigation.
