BRITISH COLUMBIA – Imperial Metals Corp. of Vancouver has been granted an amended permit under the Environmental Management Act for its Red Chris tailings management facility. The permit allows the company to discharge tails into the pond and water, subject to water quality guidelines, from the pond.
The permit is an important milestone for Red Chris as it allows the mine to operate on a continuous basis. The open pit mine and 30,000-t/d mill project produced its first concentrate last February, and it is currently ramping up to reach commercial production.
