Vancouver, BC – Engineer Gold Mines Ltd. (the “Company”) (TSXV: EAU) announces it has applied to the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy to amend Engineer Gold Mine’s Environmental Management Act permit (the “Permit”). The Permit amendments are in preparation of a multi-year bulk sample program currently being planned for the Engineer Gold Mine.
The bulk sample program includes resuming operations of the existing 50 tonne per day Gravity Separation Mill (the “Mill”) at the Engineer Gold Mine site. Engineer Gold Mines Ltd. has obtained the services of Ensero Solutions to manage the Permit amendment application and process.
The Permit amendment request includes an increase in tailings discharge from the Mill, which will allow for 24 hours of Mill operation at maximum capacity. Other requested amendments to the Permit were focused on providing operational flexibility related to active and maintenance dewatering of the underground workings. The Permit amendment request also includes increasing the allowable mine dewatering period from 7 months to 10 months to extend the period that the underground workings will be accessible for bulk sample collection.
The amended permit is targeted to be received in Q2 of 2021.
