Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU) announced that the City of Yerington Planning Commission unanimously recommended that the majority of Nevada Copper Lands at its 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow Copper Development Property be put into a newly created industrial district to facilitate solar development.
As quoted in the press release:

At the time of the conveyance by the City to the Company, the majority of Nevada Copper Lands were zoned M-1 – Industrial. The new M-2 district explicitly allows commercial solar energy conversion systems and energy storage systems and provides further definition to the full range of mining activities, as well as commercial and industrial development.
The Company is currently completing a study with NV Energy, a unit of Berkshire Hathaway Energy (“NV Energy”), to examine solar energy generation at Pumpkin Hollow in conjunction with our proposed copper development project. The study will provide site-specific evaluation of the solar potential on our lands. The study will be completed in early May and at that time the Company will determine the best strategy to develop solar at the Project.

Vice President, Environment and External Relations, Tim Dyhr, stated:

Nevada Copper and the City have collaborated for over five years, including the landmark federal land conveyance, to assure that Pumpkin Hollow will be developed. The City continues to demonstrate overwhelming support for both mining and now renewable solar energy development at the Project. This designation has been the result of consultation amongst the City, Nevada Copper and Lyon County, with constructive input and consultation with local residents. We are very pleased with the outcome.
