Braveheart Resources Inc announced that it has 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. The Bull River mine property is currently on care and maintenance. Restarting operations at the mine property including mining, milling and disposal of tailings and waste rock is not permitted at this time. The Company plans to dispose of tailings on surface in a tailings storage facility utilizing dry stack or filtered tailings technology. Prior to finalizing the location of the proposed TSF the Company plans to complete a condemnation drilling program to ensure that the proposed location is not underlain by economic mineralization.

The groundwater drilling program will include the installation of water wells and monitoring of the wells. This information will supplement the surface water monitoring programs already in place at the mine property. Results from the two drilling programs are critical components in support of the Company’s continuing application to restart the operation through the Major Mines Office.

Mr Ian Berzins, President and CEO of Braveheart Resources Inc, commented "We are extremely pleased to receive this approval from EMPR. This represents another important milestone towards our restart of the Bull River mine property."
