Stornoway Signs Partnership Accord With Chibougamau And Chapais


July 4, 2012: Montreal, Quebec – Stornoway Diamond Corp. (Stock Profile – TSX: SWY) reported it has executed a Declaration of Partnership (the “Declaration”) with the communities of Chibougamau and Chapais in the James Bay Region of Québec. The Declaration is a statement of cooperation between the partners for the responsible development of Stornoway’s 100% owned Renard Diamond Project based on the principles of environmental protection, social responsibility and economic efficiency. The Declaration was signed in Chibougamau on July 5th by Mme. Manon Cyr, Mayor of Chibougamau, M. Steve Gamache, Mayor of Chapais, and M. Patrick Godin, Chief Operating Officer of Stornoway.

The Declaration provides for the creation of a Renard Liaison Committee that will address issues of mutual interest such as communication, employment, and the economic diversification of local communities. In particular, the committee will oversee initiatives to attract and retain new residents to the towns of Chibougamau and Chapais.

Matt Manson, Stornoway’s President and CEO, stated: ”The Declaration of Partnership with Chibougamau and Chapais is a further example of the framework of trust, transparency and cooperation with which we seek to develop Québec’s first diamond mine. It follows the execution of the Mecheshoo Agreement with the Crees of the James Bay Region in March, which was established on similar principles. For Stornoway, the Declaration is an expression of the importance we place on Chibougamau and Chapais as commercial centers, and future civic partners, for the successful development of Renard.”
