BacTech Environmental Corporation (CNSX:BAC) announced that it has begun sampling tailings at the Telamayu mill site after receiving approval from Corporación Minera de Bolivia. The Company also plans to visit two surrounding tailing sites in the near future.
As quoted in the press release:
COMIBOL has identified 26 different historic mining liability sites that need to be addressed for various environmental reasons. Of the 26 sites only one has had a systematic sampling program to date, that being Telamayu in the Department of Potosi. Representatives of BacTech visited Telamayu in February to investigate the tailings and the possibility of using bioleaching as a means to clean up the historic tailings.
