TUG & BARGING LETTER OF INTENT ("LOI")
Highbank has signed a LOI with West Coast Tug & Barge Ltd.("West Coast Tug") of Campbell River, B.C. for barging aggregate from the Swamp Point North operation to destinations in the Port Simpson and Prince Rupert area. Highbank is pleased with the scheduling from West Coast Tug to provide two barges to operate from the property, which allows one to be loaded while the other is en route with aggregate to its destination or returning for re-loading.
It is anticipated that this LOI will be formalized soon and be in operation for the duration of all the construction projects in the northwest coast area. Victor N. Bryant comments, "With this agreement in place, Highbank is now able to deliver aggregate production at very competitive prices."
