December 10, 2020 - Vancouver, BC - ATAC Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:ATC) (“ATAC” or the “Company”) is providing an update following Yukon Government’s rejection of the Company’s application to construct a proposed tote road to its Tiger Gold Deposit in east-central Yukon to support advanced exploration (see news release dated November 30, 2020).

“We would like to express our profound appreciation to the numerous companies, investors and industry associations that have reached out to us to provide support in recent days,” said President and CEO Graham Downs. “We are continuing to explore all options appropriate to address this situation, but given the very significant interests at stake, it will be necessary to take some time.
