Florence Copper receives Pinal County air quality permit
Curis Resources announced that they received its renewed Air Quality Permit for the commercial operations at Florence Copper from the Pinal County Air Quality Control District (PCAQCD) on February 14, 2012. The company news release says "This permit provides Curis with clear guidelines to inform its design and ultimate operations of a commercial scale solvent extraction/electrowinning (SX/EW) plant at the Florence Copper site. It is valid for five years and is renewable again in 2017."
Curis has been locked in a high profile battle with real estate developers who raised concerns over the potential impacts on groundwater. In a recent presentation, Curis officials provided the figure at right on that issue.
