Junior Miner, First Nation to go exploring for carbon credits

May 28, 2019

The forest carbon opportunity for Lac Seul First Nation, and others we hope to explore in partnership with AurCrest, have significant potential for both greenhouse gas mitigation and First Nations reconciliation. The projects relate to managed forest tenure on public lands that are the traditional territory of Lac Seul and other Indigenous communities. Forest carbon offsets represent an opportunity to create value from meeting a higher standard of sustainable forest management and aligning with Indigenous traditional values of land stewardship.
