Canamex Resources Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX-V: CSQ) (OTCQX: CNMXF) (FSE: CX6) is pleased to announce that the Nevada Division of Water Resources has granted Canamex Resources US, Inc. an extension through 2017 for a subsurface water right for the Bruner Gold Project located in Nye County, Nevada.
The Water Right application for beneficial use, submitted back in April 2014, has been approved by the State Engineer of Nevada and Canamex Resources US Inc. had been granted a water right for mining purposes for 0.78 cubic feet per second, or 350 gpm (gallons per minute), on the west side of the Bruner property in early 2015. This water right was due to expire if not perfected, and the Company sought and was granted a 1-year extension to perfect the water right. This right, when coupled with the 0.10 cubic feet per second (50 gpm) that comes with the patented ground and the well location on the east side of the property, provides the Company a total of 400 gpm beneficial use for mining purposes. This should be sufficient water for development of up to an 8,000 tpd initial heap leach operation.
The Company has to complete a well at the permitted location by December 30, 2017 in order to perfect the water right, and then place the well into beneficial use by December 30, 2018. The Company plans to develop the water rights to be able to support the ongoing exploration drilling effort in advance project development. The Company has permitted a new well site with the BLM for the well that covers the existing water right, and will commence permitting of a well site that goes with the recently granted water right announced herein. The reclamation bond requirement for the new well site at the old water right is $1400, and has to be posted before water well drilling begins. It is assumed the reclamation bond for the well site to perfect the new water right will be similar.
Statement by President Greg Hahn
“The Issuance of sufficient water rights for an initial heap leach operation at Bruner follows the Company’s plan of anticipating development needs for the project and paralleling resource development and project development to facilitate moving the project forward expeditiously at the appropriate time” stated Greg Hahn, President & COO.
