Coronet has been working on the White Caps water well refurbishment, water rights, hydrology/ground water modeling report, cultural report, habitat report, processing plant refurbishment plans and other studies, evaluations and estimates required for preparation of the submittal of the Bureau of Land Management Plan of Operations permit application in conjunction with the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection. Based on the preliminary understanding of the hydrometallurgical process development work (See June 23, 2016 news release) as well as new processing techniques that are currently being tested, the permitting process could be less onerous than what was anticipated when the permit application was first submitted back in 2013. The Company expects to provide updates on these new processing techniques and metallurgical recoveries in the next several weeks.
In addition to the work being conducted on the Round Mountain claims, the Company has identified additional acquisition targets and stockpiles of ore in the area that could meet its criteria and fits into its strategy.
“Coronet has a renewed presence in Manhattan and we have assembled an experienced team to get these initiatives under way” says Theo van der Linde, President of Coronet. “Over the last several years Coronet has done significant work collaborating with its neighbors and we continue to believe that the opportunity exists for a major consolidation of claims and concerted exploration program in this historic gold mining district”.
