CHAMPION, MI, March 23, 2017– Eagle Mine has submitted an amendment to its existing Part 632 mining permit for the Eagle East deposit.
The application was submitted on Tuesday, March 21, to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
In July 2016, Eagle Mine announced that its exploration efforts resulted in the calculation of an Inferred Mineral Resource for Eagle East. Preliminary economic assessments have shown the potential for Eagle East to be economically viable, extending mine life and employment, further stimulating local economic activity related to Eagle operations.
There will be no major operational changes if Eagle East is mined. Eagle Mine will utilize all of its current facilities, workforce, operating procedures and transportation route.
If all approvals are granted, it is estimated that mining Eagle East will extend the life of Eagle Mine through 2023.
