Nevada Copper Corp. is pleased to announce that it is now fully permitted for construction and operation of a 70,000 tons per day integrated open pit and underground mine at its Pumpkin Hollow Copper Project.
On August 9, 2015, the appeal period for the outstanding revised reclamation permit expired. No appeals were filed and this final permit is now effective as of August 14, 2015. The revised reclamation permit was the final outstanding permit required for construction and operation of the Project.
Giulio T. Bonifacio, President and CEO commented: "Achievement of a fully permitted project is an enormous achievement and, for Pumpkin Hollow, is the culmination of years of effort by many people.
"Pumpkin Hollow has a long life and low operating cost, confirmed by our recently-completed Integrated Feasibility Study with additional upside as demonstrated by recent drilling results. What makes Pumpkin Hollow truly unique, however, is that it is now a fully-permitted copper project located in Nevada - one of the best mining jurisdictions in the world. This makes Pumpkin Hollow an attractive and scarce copper asset."
