Order to Rock Tech Lithium Inc.

Today, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) announced an order to Rock Tech Lithium Inc., a mineral exploration company based in Vancouver, BC. The company held a CNSC licence that authorized the possession, transfer, use and storage of an X-ray fluorescence radiation device which uses nuclear substances.

The order was issued following the discovery by CNSC staff that the radiation device had been transferred to another person who was not authorized by the CNSC to possess the device.

The order required Rock Tech Lithium Inc. to recover the radiation device and to properly transfer the radiation device to a person who was authorized by the CNSC to possess it.

The CNSC requires these measures to protect the health and safety of workers and the public, as well as the environment.
