Jameson Resources Ltd has reported that significant progress is being made on several fronts with respect to advancing the Crown Mountain metallurgical coal project in British Columbia, Canada.
Norwest is completing a gap analysis on data required for the BFS. This study will be used to plan the additional activities pre-requisite to commencing the BFS.
SRK has been selected to lead the water management engineering required for the EA Application, BFS, and ultimately the Mine Permit.
Jameson plans to conduct a modest drilling programme in July/August 2018. The objectives may include (a) acquire bulk sample to perform additional coal quality testing, as well as provide material for prospective end users, (b) gather geotechnical information to supportengineering/design, BFS, EA Application, and Mine Permit activities, (c) establish additional groundwater monitoring stations to support the EA Application and Mine Permit, and (d) potentially expand the boundaries of the resource area.
Phase 1 of the spoil/refuse disposal strategy is being executed by SRK and Enviromin (Bozeman, Montana, USA) and will be completed this month.
Planning for the summer 2018 drilling programme will begin in January.
