TMAC Makes Important Permitting Step Forward: Minister Accepts Amendments to Doris North Project Certificate

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 30, 2016) - TMAC Resources Inc. (TSX: TMR) ("TMAC" or the "Company") announces that the Honourable Dr. Caroline Bennett, Minister for Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, has accepted the recommendation of the Nunavut Impact Review Board ("NIRB") that TMAC's proposed amendments to the Doris North Project be allowed to proceed. This clears the way for the NIRB to finalize the amended project certificate. It also allows the Nunavut Water Board to proceed with consideration of an amended water license. The public hearing on the new water license for the Doris North Project is scheduled for mid-September.

TMAC is currently permitted to operate the Doris North Project, located on the north end of TMAC's Hope Bay Project in Nunavut, and to deposit 458,000 tonnes of tailings (approximately 1½ years of currently planned production) into the already permitted tailings impoundment area ("TIA"). The requested amendment increases the number of tonnes that may be deposited in the TIA to 2,500,000 tonnes, sufficient for the current life of mine production plan at Doris.
