Stornoway Reports Arrival Of Winter Road At Renard


February 15, 2013: Montreal, Quebec – Stornoway Diamond Corporation (Stock Profile – TSX:SWY) reports that the Québec Ministère des Transports (“MTQ”) has successfully completed the construction of a winter road to the Renard Diamond Project site, two weeks ahead of schedule. The winter road is expected to be open for approximately 6 weeks, and will be used by Stornoway to mobilize heavy equipment required for the construction of the all-season Renard Mine Road. With today’s news, the Renard project has become accessible for vehicles for the first time since its discovery in 2001.

The MTQ winter road has been constructed under a Framework Agreement executed on November 15th 2012 by Stornoway, the MTQ, the Québec Ministère des Ressources Naturelles, and the Québec Ministère des Finances et de l’Économie (“MFE”). Under the terms of this agreement, a 240km long all-season road linking Renard to the Québec highway network is currently being constructed in four segments, A to D.

Progress is well established on segments A and B, which are being completed by the MTQ as a 70km/hr two-lane gravel highway. Stornoway will complete the remaining 97km covered by segments C and D as a 50km/hr single lane mining road under the terms of a Financing Agreement executed on December 6th 2012 between Stornoway and the MFE. The timely arrival of the MTQ winter road will allow Stornoway to commence construction of the Renard Mine Road in April, as previously planned. First all-season road access to Renard is scheduled for the 4th quarter of this year.
