AurCrest Gold Announces the Establishment of Big Tree Carbon Corp.
April 19, 2021
Toronto, Ontario, April 19, 2021 - AurCrest Gold Inc. (the “Company” or “AurCrest”) (TSX-V: AGO) wishes to announce that the much anticipated rollout of AurCrest’s Forest Carbon Offset opportunity takes a step forward today as we announce the incorporation of Big Tree Carbon Corp. (“Big Tree”). Big Tree is a shared initiative between the First People of the Great Boreal Forest and AurCrest. AurCrest has been involved in Forest Carbon Offset’s since 2018 when we recognized that a new sector of the resource business was emerging. Since 2018 AurCrest’s management and Board of Directors have been pursuing a greater understanding of this new sector of the economy. Big Tree and parent company AurCrest understand the vast potential Canada’s Boreal Forest holds in the Global effort to protect the world’s remaining natural assets. The international development of a fiscal model for investment participation in climate action through “Natural Asset” monetization brings great hope and opportunity. With the effort to establish First Nations partnerships, AurCrest seeks to further our model of inclusion and participation of indigenous communities in publicly listed Canadian companies. AurCrest’s Board of Directors includes 50% representation of Indigenous Members and an Annishnabek President and CEO.
Big Tree is being established to independently develop the Forest Carbon Offset initiative from AurCrest’s exploration business. (AurCrest was recently ranked 3rd amongst best junior Gold Stocks on the TSX Venture Exchange according to a recent article published by Investing News. Georgia Williams - April 15, 2021). It is AurCrest’s belief that this business should in all respects have First Nations representation. Canada’s First People have been largely left out of the monetization of Canada’s natural assets for the last 400 years.
When it comes to an industry that will represent the common social goals of protecting the remaining Natural Assets of the planet, AurCrest recognizes our inherent obligation and corporate responsibility to include Indigenous communities. AurCrest does this to further our role in the promotion of clause 92 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action and our belief in the equality of all people. AurCrest also recognizes that we play an active leadership role in the emergence of environmental and social governance on the TSX Venture Exchange.
