Agency OK's Data Collection For Proposed Oregon Mine

By Jim McCoy Wed 13th March NewsDepartment of Geologygold mineOntario
A company that plans a gold mine and mill in Eastern Oregon has gotten the go-ahead from a state agency to collect information for its permit application. The Argus Observer of Ontario reports that the state Department of Geology and Mineral Industries is handing the permit process. It has approved the way the company plans to gather data. Calico Resources proposes an underground mine and a mill on the surface at Grassy Mountain, about 25 miles south of Vale in Malheur County. It's expected to take a year to gather economic, environmental and cultural information about the site for state regulators to consider as part of the permit application. During the year, Calico is expected to develop plans for operations, reclamation and closing.
