Trek Mining Receives Key Permit For Brazilian Mine
Trek Mining Inc. ( TSXV: TREK) announces receipt of the last key permit needed to construct the Aurizona Gold Mine in Brazil. The “license to install” permit was issued by the Maranhão State Environmental Agency, Trek says. “We now have the permits and the funding, after completion of the Equinox Gold merger, to construct the Aurizona Gold Mine and are on track to achieve production by the end of 2018,” says Christian Milau, chief executive officer. The company says a July feasibility study for Aurizona outlined an open-pit mine producing an average of some 136,000 gold ounces per year, with an initial 6.5-year mine life but potential exploration upside, based on recent drill results.
