West Kirkland Mining Inc. offers a report about the ongoing activities relating to the Hasbrouck Gold Project. Full interaction between the company, its environmental consultants, and the Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) has been finished and federal permitting for construction and operation of the planned Phase 2 Hasbrouck Mine open pit heap leach operation is on track for completion in Q4 2019.
Federal permits for construction and work on the planned Phase 1 Three Hills Mine open-pit heap-leach operation have already been given out by the BLM. In January 2019, West Kirkland Mining also received the state permission for the inter-basin transfer of water from the region of the Three Hills Mine where the company leases a water right to the area of the Phase 2 Hasbrouck Mine.
We are very pleased with our recent discussions with the BLM as these interactions have confirmed our detailed plan for completing required permits on the larger Phase 2 Hasbrouck Mine open-pit heap-leach area of the Hasbrouck Project. We are within the scope as set out in our budget and our schedule for completion in Q4 2019 is on track. Our objective to obtain full federal permits over the entire Hasbrouck Project in 2019 is within sight.
