Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU) announced the introduction of the Lyon County Economic Development and Conservation Act in the U.S. Senate. The bill was introduced by Senators Harry Reid and Dean Heller and will affect the Pumpkin Hollow project.
As quoted in the press release:
The primary difference between this bill and the previous bill was the inclusion of a wilderness component, referred to as Wovoka, approximately 20 miles from Pumpkin Hollow. Local wilderness advocates, with support from state and national wilderness groups, and from Senator Reid, have sought wilderness designation here for over five years.
