ARTEMIS SUBMITS EARLY WORKS PERMIT APPLICATIONS FOR BLACKWATER GOLD PROJECT
Artemis Gold Inc. has submitted applications to the British Columbia government to undertake an early works construction program in respect of its Blackwater gold project in central British Columbia.
About the program
The program is designed to focus on clearing of key infrastructure areas, including haul roads, the stage 1 tailing storage facility and camp areas. In addition, construction of the mine access road and plant-site bulk earthworks will be fast-tracked to facilitate early mobilization of the engineering, procurement and construction contractor to site upon receipt of major works permits.
The permitting process in respect of the program is expected to take several months, with approvals anticipated in late Q2 2021.
Steven Dean, chairman and chief executive officer, commented: "We are just over a year away from the planned start of major construction activities at Blackwater.
The early works construction permit for Blackwater has been submitted as planned in order to provide flexibility to manage seasonal and other factors ahead of major construction kick-off. The provincial government has demonstrated good support to move forward with our development activities at Blackwater, and this permit is part of that co-ordinated plan."
We seek Safe Harbor.
