Western Copper and Gold Corporation (TSX:WRN,NYSEMKT:WRN) responded to the petition filed by Little Salmon Carmacks First Nation in the Supreme Court of Yukon on April 10, 2014 naming the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board, and Western’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Casino Mining Corp. as respondents.

As quoted in the press release:

Casino Mining believes it met and exceeded the level of consultation required for submission of its application to YESAB. We believe LSCFN chances of success with this petition are very limited. We do not expect this petition to have any significant effect on the timing of the assessment of the Casino Mining Project. Casino Mining has spent $18 million over 5 years preparing the application for YESAB and is fully confident that this project will go ahead as planned.
