Braveheart Resources Inc has provided an update on activities at the Bull River Mine property. On August 16, 2019 Braveheart received an amendment to its Mines Act Permit M-33 from British Columbia Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources. The amendment provides approval for exploration drilling and groundwater drilling at the permitted mine area of approximately 116 hectares. Since receipt of the permit amendment Braveheart has completed a condemnation drilling program at the property and expects to complete a groundwater drilling program by the end of October 2019.

The condemnation drilling program verified that there is no near surface economic mineralization in terms of copper, gold and silver metals that would be sterilized by the placement of tailings in an area on surface that has been identified as the primary location for a dry stack or filtered tailings storage facility. The proposed TSF area is in proximity to the existing mill and surface infrastructure. Based on these results the Company can proceed with detailed engineering of the TSF. This is one of the critical components in support of the continuing application to restart the operation through the Major Mines Office of EMPR. Dry stack or filtered tailings technology has been identified as one of the best available technologies for tailings deposition on surface.
