Potash Ridge Corporation (TSX:PRK) reported that the that the Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining has issued the Large Mining Permit for Potash Ridge’s Blawn Mountain Project. The permit represents a significant accomplishment for Potash Ridge in advancing the project.
As quoted in the press release:
The Corporation had received approval for the Corporation’s Notice of Intention to Commence Large Mining Operations in July 2014, which was subject to a 30-day public comment period. This public comment period ended on August 8, 2014. Multiple letters of support were received and no objections, highlighting the lack of major environmental, social issues and strong support within the community. Accordingly, DOGM has issued the final Permit to Potash Ridge. Prior to the commencement of construction, certain normal course regulatory filings will be required, including a reclamation contract and the posting of a reclamation surety bond.
Potash Ridge president and CEO, Guy Bentinck, said:
The Permit approval is a huge accomplishment by our team and further illustrates the success of our accelerated permitting program for the Project. We are delighted with all of our environmental and permitting achievements thus far in 2014, and have only one more major permit remaining to be addressed as part of the upcoming feasibility study.
