TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan 30, 2013) - Solid Gold Resources Corp. ("Solid Gold") (TSX VENTURE:SLD) announced today that on the motion and request of Ontario, the Divisional Court declined to hear Solid Gold''s appeal against the injunction granted to the Wahgoshig First Nation in January 2012. Solid Gold obtained leave to appeal from Mr. Justice Wilton-Siegal who seriously doubted the correctness of the injunction decision. Wahgoshig First Nation was willing to proceed with the appeal.
At Ontario''s urging, the Divisional Court found that the appeal was "moot" due to the new legislative regime under the Mining Act. The amendments requiring exploration plans and permits become mandatory on April 1, 2013.
Solid Gold has commenced an action against the Ontario government claiming damages of $100 million. The claim is based on the damages suffered by Solid Gold including lost opportunity costs arising from the Crown''s negligent misrepresentations and other misconduct related to Solid Gold''s Legacy Project.
