  5. Stibnite Gold Project Presentation January 10, 2019– The Stibnite Advisory Council would like an overview of the project at their January 10, 2019 meeting. From that initial presentation, the Advisory Council will determine which working groups they would like to organize, if any. The Advisory Council will provide us with a list of topics they would like covered by December 31.
  6. Form of Reporting to Communities– We determined that the obligation of the Stibnite Advisory Council to report back to the Communities will take the form of a meeting summary and minutes distributed to the elected entity for each Community (for example the City of Cascade, Yellow Pine Village Association, etc.). The elected entity will likely distribute in their meeting packets, but this is up to the individual community re how to distribute.
