New Nadina wins Land Issue appeal

June 3, 2015 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA – New Nadina Explorations Limited (the “Company”, TSX VENTURE: NNA) is pleased to report that we have been successful at the Court of Appeal – the Petition brought by C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 B.C. Ltd. has been dismissed. In coming to its decision, the Court of Appeal rejected the arguments put forward by the Appellants, and agreed with the Surface Rights Board of BC (SRB) and the Chambers Judge that “land under cultivation” can have a seasonal aspect. The Appeal was heard by the Court of Appeal in Vancouver on May 5, 2015.

Pursuant to the Court of Appeal’s Rules, New Nadina is also entitled to costs of the appeal.

The decision is a victory for New Nadina and also for others in the industry who can now benefit from the guidance given by the Court of Appeal in this matter.

As a result of this decision, New Nadina can now continue its exploration work. Any remaining issues surrounding conditions on entry or compensation to be paid to the landowner can be dealt with by the Surface Rights Board on an as needed basis.

As background, the Appellants were appealing the decision of Madam Justice Donegan of the BC Supreme Court, given in Kamloops on November 19, 2014. Madam Justice Donegan had dismissed the landowner’s petition for Judicial Review of the decision of the Surface Rights Board of BC after a three-day hearing held June 2013 in Smithers. The SRB found that while the landowner’s “main meadow” was land under cultivation at the time of the hearing, but would no longer be under cultivation when seasonal farming activities ceased.

In September 2011 drilling tested a geophysical anomaly and discovered a copper-molybdenum-gold porphyry on private land. Up to this discovery landowner consent had been freely given. The 2012 drill program strictly adhered to extraordinarily high levels of no footprint drilling as requested by the landowner. Even though New Nadina met all requirements obstruction continued. At this time only 11 drill holes have tested this large anomaly.

New Nadina prides itself in using the highest level of reclamation standards including sterile soil for landscaping, weed control, removal of rocks and where mechanical equipment could cause damage hand tools and labour were used, etc.

The Company has made considerable concessions to not interfere with landowner activities.

A full copy of the decision document will be made available on the Company website under the section “Properties, Silver Queen Reports” (http://www.nadina.com/properties/silver-queen-reports ).

Landowner Court Appeal May 5, 2015

April 22, 2015 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA – New Nadina Explorations Limited (TSX VENTURE: NNA ”) provides update on landowner issue at the Silver Queen property near Houston, BC. Further to the Dec 12, 2014 News Release reporting that C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 BC Ltd., on December 3, 2014 filed an appeal (to the BC Court of Appeal) of the June 11, 2014 decision of Madam Justice Donegan of the BC Supreme Court, who dismissed the landowner’s petition for Judicial Review of the decision of the Surface Rights Board of BC (Sept 6, 2013).

New Nadina expects the appellants to argue that the exclusions to a Free Miner’s right of entry set out in s. 11(2) of the Mineral Tenure Act also apply in situations where a party has acquired a mineral tenure and is exercising a right of entry under s. 14 of the Mineral Tenure Act.

The appellants are also seeking to redefine “Land Under Cultivation” to include:

a. land lying fallow for a period of time as part of an agriculture plan;

b. land being rested in order deal with invasive weeds;

c. land on which the present season’s crop has been harvested; and

d. land on which the opportunity to harvest the present season’s crop has been lost due weather, disease, or the like.

The Appeal will be heard by the BC Court of Appeal on May 5, 2015, starting at 10am at the Law Courts located at 800 Smithe Street in Vancouver. The hearing is open to the public and industry support is welcomed.

New Nadina Explorations Limited

LANDOWNER LAWSUITS, SURFACE RIGHTS BOARD (SRB) DECISION AND CHRONOLOGY

November 9, 2012: A petition was filed in the Supreme Court of British Columbia by land owners holding the surface rights over certain Silver Queen mineral claims, C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 B.C. Ltd., against the Mine Inspector with Ministry of Mines and the Company seeking judicial review of the amended Ministry of Mines permit issued to the Company, and both a permanent and interim order stopping the Company from conducting any and all mining activities authorized under such permit. At the hearing of an ex parte application for an interim injunction, the court ordered that the matter should not proceed without notice to New Nadina, and ordered that Christmann serve the petition materials on New Nadina before proceeding any further.

November 28, 2012: The Court ordered that by consent the Petition (above) be dismissed and the parties entered into an informal settlement agreement with the effect that the Company could continue its mandate to explore the Silver Queen mineral claims and complete the exploration program currently underway.

April 24, 2013: Subsequent to the above Petition, C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 BC Ltd submitted to the Surface Rights Board of BC (SRB) claiming that a large portion of the area covered by the New Nadina exploration permit is “under cultivation” within the meaning of the Mineral Tenure Act, and therefore not subject to right of entry for mining activity. Mediated telephone conference meeting pre-arbitration attempts to resolve private landowner issues were unsuccessful. The parties disagreed and the mediator recommended the issue to the SRB for a decision.

June 3 – 6, 2013: Surface Rights Board hearing took place at Smithers, BC.

September 6, 2013: The BC Surface Rights Board agreed with the Company’s position that once the seasonal opportunity to harvest or pasture a crop has passed, land is no longer considered “land under cultivation” within the meaning of the Mineral Tenure Act until such time as cultivation activities for the purpose of raising and harvesting or pasturing a crop begin again the following season. This interpretation allows New Nadina access to such areas after the crop, if any, has been harvested or once the time has lapsed to harvest and also in early fall and winter.

October 25, 2013: C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 BC Ltd.* are not satisfied with the decision of the SRB and have now filed a Petition with the Supreme Court of B.C. against New Nadina Explorations Limited and Cheryl Vickers in her capacity as Chair of the Surface Rights Board to set aside parts of the decision. The petition is seeking such changes to redefine “Land Under Cultivation” as set out in the Mineral Tenure Act be land that is improved or is being improved for the purposes of crop production including:

a. land lying fallow for a period of time as part of an agriculture plan;

b. land being rested in order deal with invasive weeds;

c. land on which the present season’s crop has been harvested; and

d. land on which the opportunity to harvest the present season’s crop has been lost due weather, disease, or the like.

New Nadina believes this latest application is yet another tactic to obstruct the Company’s exploration plans, and it is confident that it has succeeded in obtaining the required approval to proceed with its exploration as planned.

The decision of the SRB continues to be in effect during this challenge by the surface landholders and New Nadina will continue to update its shareholders on the developments of the proceedings.

The Company has been advised of a proposed court date during the week of June 9, 2014.

* As of December 23, 2013 BC Registry Services shows the directors of 0712249BC Ltd. as:

            Charles Donald Christmann of Patagonia AZ, USA, Director, Secretary

            Gary Blaine Thompson of Houston, BC., Director, President and

         Mary Elizabeth MacGregor of Kamloops, Director & solicitor, same address as the Registered Office of the company.

June 11, 2014: The Company presented at the BC Supreme Court hearing in Kamloops BC and at this time there has been no decision.

Until a decision to the contrary is granted the land owner(s), the Company will abide by the
Sept 6, 2013 SRB decision and continue to work respecting that decision.

November 24, 2014: A decision from the BC Supreme Court has dismissed the Petition brought by C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 B.C. Ltd., awarding costs to New Nadina. The Court found that such an interpretation would go beyond the ordinary and grammatical sense of the phrase in the context of overall legislative scheme, and would be inconsistent with the intent of the Legislature. The Court also stated that the legislation clearly allows New Nadina, as a recorded mineral tenure holder with a permit under s.10 of the Mines Act, to enter private lands. The land owner may apply to the SRB for the settling of entry conditions and compensation. (refer to October 25, 2013 note)

December 12, 2014: Received notice where C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 BC Ltd, on December 3, 2014 filed an appeal regarding the decision of Madam Justice Donegan of the BC Supreme Court of Appeal.  Christmann holds the surface rights over some of the Silver Queen mineral tenures and is objecting to the right of any access mainly claiming the lands are ‘lands under cultivation’. Plans to explore and develop the underground vein system on the Silver Queen property or work on Crown owned land are not affected by the landowner appeal. New Nadina expects the Court of Appeal to hear the case sometime in the summer of 2015. Our legal counsel has reviewed in detail the decision of Madam Justice Donegan substantiating that it is correct and that the landowner’s appeal is unlikely to succeed.

March 2015: Notice where C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 BC Ltd. are appealing to the BC Supreme Court of Appeal the decision of Madam Justice Donegan.

April 22, 2015: Notice advising the Appeal will be heard by the BC Court of Appeal on May 5, 2015, starting at 10am at the Law Courts located at 800 Smithe Street in Vancouver. The hearing is open to the public and industry support is welcomed. New Nadina expects the appellants to argue that the exclusions to a Free Miner’s right of entry set out in s. 11(2) of the Mineral Tenure Act also apply in situations where a party has acquired a mineral tenure and is exercising a right of entry under s. 14 of the Mineral Tenure Act. The appellants are also seeking to redefine “Land Under Cultivation” as listed reference Oct 25, 2013.

Refer to News Release dated November 24, 2014 where the BCSC denied his claim and awarded New Nadina rights to access with Christmann to pay costs.

New Nadina wins Land Issue

November 24, 2014 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA – New Nadina Explorations Limited (the “Company”, TSX VENTURE: NNA) is pleased to announce the release of a decision in our favour from the BC Supreme Court. The decision relates to the rights of access on private property at the Silver Queen property south of Houston, BC where a copper-moly-gold porphyry was discovered in 2011.

The Court has dismissed the Petition brought by C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 B.C. Ltd., with costs payable to New Nadina. The Petitioners sought a judicial review of the Surface Rights Board decision of September 4, 2013. The Petition was heard by the court in Kamloops on June 11, 2014. Among other things, the petitioners were asking the court to declare that the phrase “land under cultivation” in the Mineral Tenure Act (MTA) included land that was lying fallow.

The Court found that such an interpretation would go beyond the ordinary and grammatical sense of the phrase in the context of overall legislative scheme, and would be inconsistent with the intent of the Legislature.

The court also stated that the legislation clearly allows New Nadina, as a recorded mineral tenure holder with a permit under s. 10 of the Mines Act, to enter private lands. The land owner may apply to the SRB for the settling of entry conditions and compensation.

New Nadina has conducted three drill programs on this private land with all disturbances being rectified, landscaped, weeds pulled and seeded to the highest level of standards as soon as possible. The Company has made considerable concession so as not to interfere with any of the landowner’s activities.

A full copy of the decision document will be made available on the Company website and history references to this landowner can be viewed under the section “Mineral Project Activity, Silver Queen Property” listed in the MD&A dated July 28, 2014 ( http://www.nadina.com/images/mda-3-14-fnl.pdf ).

Update on Silver Queen property Land Issue

September 6, 2013 GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA

New Nadina Explorations Limited (the “Company”, TSX VENTURE: “NNA”) wishes to provide an update with respect to the proceedings before the BC Surface Rights Board (SRB) brought on by holders of surface rights relating to the Company’s Silver Queen property, further to its news release dated April 30, 2013.

 

The surface rights holder applicants had alleged that a portion of the Company’s Silver Queen property, located 30 kilometers south of Houston, B.C., fell under the category of “land under cultivation” pursuant to the Mineral Tenure Act and therefore were exempt from the Company’s right to enter for mineral exploration.

 

The proceedings focused on an area of the Silver Queen property which related to the Itsit copper-moly-gold porphyry discovery. This area, commonly known as the “Hay Meadows” comprises approximately 400 acres demarcated by fencing into three areas: the “West Meadow”, the “Main Meadow” and the “South Meadow”.

 

Despite finding that the Hay Meadows was “cultivated land”, the SRB sided with the Company that the West Meadow and South Meadow portions of the property did not meet the definition of “land under cultivation” as they are not in a present and active state of cultivation for the purpose of raising a crop.

 

The SRB found in favour of the applicants that the Main Meadow was “land under cultivation” as it was presently subject to cultivation activities for the purpose of harvesting a crop and therefore not subject to right of entry for exploration purposes, however the SRB included that once the seasonal opportunity to harvest or pasture a crop has passed, land is no longer considered “land under cultivation” within the meaning of the Mineral Tenure Act until such time as cultivation activities for the purpose of raising and harvesting or pasturing a crop begin again the following season. This would allow New Nadina access to these areas after the crop is harvested or once the time has lapsed to harvest and also in early fall and winter.

 

The Company submitted a Notice of Work to the Ministry of Mines in June of this year. Approval was delayed awaiting the SRB ruling. The SRB clarification is largely consistent with and confirms previous rulings. A previous attempt made in November 2012 by the surface rights holders (C. Donald Christmann and 0712249 B.C. Ltd.) to deny the Company access to its Silver Queen property failed and was dismissed by the Supreme Court of British Columbia.

 

The current planned exploration program for the Silver Queen property is largely focused outside the main hayfield or land ruled as “land under cultivation”. As such, the Company intends to continue its exploration and development in that area while respecting private property and other land users.
