RTCUC has earned a 60% interest in Henday and Forum holds a 40% interest. RTCUC has the right to acquire an additional 10% interest in and to Henday by sole funding $20 million in exploration or delivering a Feasibility Study on the Henday property, whichever occurs first. The current drill program is a step towards RTCUC earning their further interest in the project.
