Kerr Mines (TSX:KER) has announced that it has begun dewatering and rehabilitation activities at its flagship Copperstone Mine in Arizona.
Chris Hopkins, interim CEO, said:

We are firmly focused on restarting operations at Copperstone,” said Chris Hopkins, Interim CEO of Kerr Mines. “Completing the de-watering activities will represent a major catalyst in our efforts to unlock Copperstone’s potential value.  The Company has also begun developing an exploration and underground development program.

As quoted in the press release:

The Copperstone Mine produced nearly 500,000 ounces of gold through open pit mining. Existing infrastructure which remains from this time, or which has been subsequently installed by the Company’s predecessor and wholly owned subsidiary, American Bonanza Gold Corp., is considerable and serves to reduce the current capital requirements for the mine. Existing infrastructure includes a power line and substation, and three water wells, all sufficient for the proposed operations at Copperstone. Additional infrastructure on site includes offices, maintenance shops and a laboratory building (permitted tailings facility, processing facility and mill).
