TORONTO, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seabridge Gold (TSX:SEA) (NYSE:SA) announced today that its Environmental Team has won the 2017 Robert R. Hedley Award presented annually by the Association for Mineral Exploration in BC to a member company for significant contributions or advances in environmental management and/or social responsibility. The announcement from the AME BC can be reviewed here.

The award specifically recognizes the contributions of Seabridge’s Brent Murphy, Vice President of Environmental Affairs, and Elizabeth Miller, Manager of Environmental Affairs, who are leading the Company’s sustainable development program for its KSM Project. The program has pioneered community engagement, local development and environmental initiatives which were instrumental in obtaining approval of the project’s Environmental Assessment and have been widely recognized by representatives of the industry and the BC government.

Seabridge Chairman and CEO Rudi Fronk stated “We are pleased to see that the efforts of Brent, Elizabeth and our team to advance KSM responsibly have been recognized by their colleagues and peers within the mineral exploration industry. Brent and Elizabeth have established a new standard for environmental stewardship and leadership in social engagement which went well beyond the requirements of the environmental assessment process while at the same time protecting the project's economic feasibility. We appreciate that the award highlights our emphasis on local community input into the development of KSM’s overall design.”

Seabridge Gold holds a 100% interest in several North American gold resource projects.
