Ministry of Environment Issues Amended EMA Permit to Red Chris

Imperial Metals Corporation reports that an amended permit under the British Columbia Environmental Management Act (EMA) for the Red Chris mine was issued on June 12, 2015 by the Ministry of Environment to Red Chris Development Company Ltd. (Red Chris), a wholly owned subsidiary of Imperial.

The amended EMA permit replaces the previously issued short term authorization. This permit allows the mine to discharge tailings into the tailings storage facility (TSF) and discharge water from the TSF subject to water quality guidelines.

Red Chris has worked closely with the Tahltan Central Council and the Ministry of Environment in regard to the terms and conditions of the permit. The amended EMA permit is an important milestone for Red Chris as it ensures the mine can operate on a continuous basis subject to the conditions of the permit.
