The Bull River Mine Project is located within ʔamakʔis Ktunaxa, the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa Nation (i.e. Ktunaxa homelands).

Braveheart has notified the KNC and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation ("EMLI"), the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy and the Environmental Assessment Office Office ("EAO") of British Columbia of its intent to begin processing existing mineralized stockpiled material on surface at the mine and then resume underground mining operations.
The Capacity Funding Agreement provides a framework for the purposes of information sharing and engagement, and where appropriate, accommodation, between Braveheart and Ktunaxa First Nations. Funds will be used for the purpose of defraying the costs incurred by the KNC in carrying out and completing the regulatory review of the Bull River Mine application in addition to other engagement activities between Braveheart and the Ktunaxa Nation.
Ian Berzins, President and CEO commented, "We are extremely pleased to reach this Capacity Funding Agreement with the KNC.
