Bangalore (Reuters) - Canada's Selwyn Resources said the Supreme Court of Yukon dismissed an application by the Liard First Nation to stop the company from exploring its zinc-lead project in the Yukon.

The court's decision allows the company to apply for licenses and permits for advanced exploration of the 200,000 tonne underground project.

In November last year, the Liard First Nation had sought a stay on Yukon government's decision to allow the exploration of the Selwyn project, saying it was not consulted.
