Nevada Copper Inc. has received a number of job inquiries recently at the Pumpkin Hollow Project.  However, hiring of a construction or operations workforce is many months out, since the mine must first be constructed.

The passage of the Yerington Land Conveyance bill by Congress and the $200 million financing were exciting milestones and put us in a strong position to continue development of the project.  The company is also in a much better position to secure the remainder of financing needed to develop both the underground and open pit mines at the project.  The company is re-evaluating the project development strategy based on an exploration program and feasibility study update currently underway.

Currently, the Company is constructing a 24-foot diameter, production-sized shaft and lateral development.  This work is being performed by Cementation, USA, a specialized shaft-sinking contractor.  They currently have a workforce of about 50 people and from time to time may add people.

Completion of the land transfer affords the company an opportunity to re-evaluate the best and most efficient way to develop the project.  It will take about six months to complete the land transfer.  During that time the company is undertaking a significant amount of planning and engineering design that needs to be completed before we start construction and operation of the mine and process facilities.  Once those studies have been completed and the necessary financing is secured to complete development of the project, construction will be initiated and operations will follow.

At this time we cannot provide exact times when these different activities will occur.  Persons interested in employment opportunities or job training should monitor our website social media site on Facebook for information on start-up of construction and operations:

On March 6, 2015 six members of the Nevada Mining Association and two directors from the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development came to visit Nevada Copper, the Pumpkin Hollow Mine Project for an overview presentation and a mine tour. The occasion gave us a chance to highlight the opportunities for economic development with both mines and other commercial and industrial development envisioned at Pumpkin Hollow.

The Nevada Mining Association has existed for more than 100 years-first established in 1912 as the Nevada Mine Operators Association and changed to the Nevada Mining Association in 1952. From debating policy matters in the state legislature and local governments to uniting the voice of the industry in public relations and leading the industry’s efforts in the community, the work of the Nevada Mining Association can be seen in all corners of the state and in all levels of the communities.

The Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) was created during the 2011 Session of the Nevada Legislature through a collaboration of the Nevada Governor’s Office and the Leadership of the Nevada State Senate and State Assembly.

GOED promotes a robust, diversified and prosperous economy in Nevada, stimulating business expansion and retention, encouraging entrepreneurial enterprise, attracting new business and facilitating community development.
