VANCOUVER, Jan. 21, 2020 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) -- Forum Energy Metals Corp. (tsx.v:FMC) ("Forum" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that Rio Tinto Exploration Canada Inc. ("RTEC") has advised the Company that permits to construct a 99 km winter access trail and installation of a temporary 65-80 person capacity work camp to support drilling and mineral exploration at Forum's Janice Lake copper project in 2020 and 2021, has been granted by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment.

The camp will be operated by RTEC for the sole use of personnel and contractors working on the Janice Lake copper exploration project.

RTEC can earn an 80% interest in the Janice Lake project by completing $30 million in exploration.

Further details and timelines will be announced when available.
