SKY Volleyball Club is pleased to announce the $500 donation by Wolfgang Kaske to the WINGS SKY Nationals Gala.  "I have been following the volleyball career of Emily Dahl for the past 5 years, observing the many benefits of participating in team sports and their effect on her.  I wanted to support the six SKY Volleyball teams, including Emily's, in the quest for Nationals.  The Gala is a fantastic way to do that."  Said Kaske about his donation.

The purpose of this event is to help make possible our trip to Edmonton, Alberta the home of the 2018 National Volleyball Tournament.

Previous attendees to this tournament have found the trip to be incredibly inspirational, providing a National Awakening and an opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime.

About Strongbow Exploration Inc.

Strongbow Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:SBW), is a member of the Osisko group of companies, and building a portfolio of strategic metals assets in North America and the United Kingdom. Our flagship project is the past producing South Crofty underground tin mine in Cornwall, UK. With a mining license (valid to 2071), planning permission to construct a new surface process plant and water discharge permit in place, the project is fully permitted. The project further benefits from numerous shafts preserved for future mining activity, a high-grade NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Estimate, and a strongly supportive local community that has a long history of mining.

We are now focused on the construction of a water treatment plant so the now-flooded mine can be dewatered. Strongbow plans to bring the project to a production decision and complete a feasibility study in parallel with the mine dewatering process. The predominant uses for tin today are in the high tech world, as lead-free solder in circuit boards and in various forms of batteries. Companies using tin are coming under increasing scrutiny to demonstrate that the materials they use are not supporting conflict, do not contribute to environmental damage, and / or exploit children in the workforce. Strongbow is well positioned to capitalize on the demand for “CLEAN TIN”.
