Nevada Copper, Inc. is COMMITTED TO DEVELOPING LOCAL WORKFORCE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
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:
