PureGold Red Lake Mine gets amended ECA for air and noise permit

Tagged with: | | | | | |

Pure Gold Mining said that the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) has approved and granted an amended environmental compliance approval (ECA) for air and noise emissions at its PureGold Red Lake Mine in Red Lake, Ontario.

The Canadian gold miner said that the modified ECA defines operating conditions concerning air and noise emissions for the PureGold mining and milling operations. Included in this are all ancillary and support processes and activities that will have a production limit of up to 1,089 tonnes of processed gold ore per day.

Pure Gold Mining is currently seeking receipt of an amended industrial effluent permit (ECA Industrial Sewage Works) for the Canadian gold mine. The Canadian gold miner said that the initial regulatory review has been completed, and it has now applied for an expedited approval process for the amendment of the permit.

Darin Labrenz – President and CEO of Pure Gold Mining, commenting on the PureGold Red Lake Mine, said: “Since first acquiring the project, we have worked very closely with the First Nations, local communities and regulators to materially advance the project and to transform a brownfields site into a sustainable modern mine.

“To date, our work has clearly established a robust, scalable mining operation, while concurrently improving the surrounding environment through the progressive removal and reclamation of legacy works. In production, our PureGold Mine is expected to generate over $470 million in direct salaries over the life of the phase 1 mine and will provide significant economic benefits to the local communities and surrounding region through both direct and indirect taxation and expenditures.

“While proud of our rich Red Lake history, we are truly excited about the future as we establish a new, modern mining complex that will provide meaningful employment and be an economic driver for years to come.”

The PureGold Red Lake Mine, which is fully funded, is slated to produce its first gold in late 2020. The orebody of the Red Lake gold mine is contained within a 7km-long gold system that is said to be wide open for expansion at depth and along strike.

Pure Gold Mining said that multiple discoveries made by it at the PureGold Red Lake Mine indicate potential opportunities for growth in the near-term growth.
