Imperial Metals Receives Approvals to Commence Red Chris Mine Processing Plant

Imperial Metals Corporation reports that the necessary approvals were received to commence commissioning of the processing plant at the Red Chris mine on February 2, 2015.

Testing of the grinding circuit began on February 3. The SAG and ball mill grinding circuit has been test run at 25% and 50% power levels, the tank cell mechanisms have been run, and the water reclaim and tailings lines have also delivered water to the mill, and the slurry from the test runs to the tailings storage facility. Mining in both the East and Main zones continues to advance. As a result, there is a selection of ore styles available for mill optimization.

The Company continues to work closely with the Tahltan First Nation, whose cooperation has been instrumental in the construction of the Red Chris mine - an important milestone for the Tahltan, Imperial and the Province of British Columbia.
