The Investing News Network recently spoke with Dr. Paul West-Sells, recently appointed CEO of Western Copper and Gold (TSX:WRN,NYSEMKT:WRN), about recent developments for the company’s Casino project in Canada’s Yukon.
As West-Sells noted, Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) identified Casino as the most economic copper projects in its coverage universe this past summer, but today, the project would bring in as much revenue from gold as it would from copper. “The Casino project is a significant gold producer,” West-Sells said. “We produce a million ounces of gold equivalent per year over the first four years.”
On February 18, it was announced that the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Board would send the Casino project for a panel review “for matters relating to tailings and waste management and potential effects to wildlife.”
