American Vanadium Corp. (TSXV:AVC,OTCQX:AVCVF) submitted the Plan of Operations for the Gibellini Project in Nevada to the US Bureau of Land Management which, upon the agency’s determination of completeness, initiates the National Environmental Policy Act review process. The Company has also submitted a Reclamation Plan to the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection.
As quoted in the press release:
The Plan of Operations details the plan for the Gibellini Project from mine design, to processing facilities, to the reclamation and closure plan. Importantly, the Plan of Operations incorporates numerous product outputs for high purity vanadium products for the titanium alloying industry as well as electrolyte for the vanadium flow battery market. In addition, the Plan of Operations incorporates a micro grid design utilizing solar power generation and a vanadium battery which will be capable of powering the mine off-grid.
American Vanadium President & CEO Bill Radvak said:
This is a major step forward in our mine permitting process. The BLM, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection and Eureka County have all been very supportive and a pleasure to work with on this project, providing both regulatory and technical direction to enhance the project’s environmental protection measures and streamline the permitting process.
