The mine is located on the San Juan Ridge about 17 miles north of Nevada City. HERE is the full article in the Union Newspaper from today. It hopes to mine about 244,000 ounces of gold from the cemented gravels, all underground.
Tim Callaway, mine CEO will be in charge and his track record of environmental sensitivity is well known. He will not be using any chemicals to process the gold and it will be done underground. The existing settling ponds wll be used to trap sediments and the water will be recycled. 90 jobs and all the ancillary expenses in our view will be a great benefit o the county. Callaway has a good reputation with people involved on all sides of the mining issues, we hope the County will get this permit processed ASAP so they can get going.
The mine has its own website for further information.
