Montreal, Canada – June 30, 2011 – KWG Resources Inc. (TSXV: KWG) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Canada Chrome Corporation, together with Greenstone Economic Development Corporation, have today filed an application with PPP Canada for consideration of funding support of up to $496 million for the construction of a railroad to the Ring of Fire mining discoveries in the James Bay Lowlands of Northern Ontario.
On May 4, 2011 PPP Canada launched Round Three call for proposals of the P3 Canada Fund, encouraging provinces, territories, First Nations and municipalities to consider the P3 model for their public infrastructure needs. The P3 Canada Fund is a merit-based program designed to generate an increase in P3 public infrastructure. Eligible projects can receive up to 25% of the direct cost of construction for a P3 project.
Canada Chrome Corporation has undertaken preliminary engineering and construction cost estimates to build a railroad from a junction with the Trans-Canada line of the Canadian National Railway at Exton, Ontario. The project is presently estimated to cost $1.984 billion.
The co-applicants made the submission for themselves and a joint venture anticipated to be formed with the Municipality of Greenstone and a First Nations Regional Economic Development Corporation to be created by the Matawa and Mushkegowuk First Nations.
