Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. Responds to Review Panel Recommendations
Vancouver BC, February 11, 2015: The Independent Review Panel Report on
the investigation into the cause of the failure of the tailings storage facility
(“TSF”) at the Mount Polley Mine was released on January 30, 2015. One of the
seven recommendations in the report was that future permit applications for a
TSF should be based on a bankable feasibility study.
The full report is available online at: https://www.mountpolleyreviewpanel.ca/final-report
Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. conducted geotechnical site investigations during
2006 and 2007 on the TSF for the proposed Morrison mine. The Site investigations
included approximately 20 drill holes, 9.5 km of geophysical survey lines and
over 15 test pits, along with geotechnical and hydrogeological testing
consistent with good practice for a Feasibility Study and environmental
application. In 2009, Klohn Crippen Berger prepared a Geotechnical Feasibility
Study design of the tailings storage facility, mine waste rock dump, low grade
ore stockpile, and the associated facilities. The design covered the
geotechnical, water management and civil aspects of the works.
PBM is committed to constructing and operating the Morrison mine in compliance
with industry best practices, using proven technology and in full compliance
with all permit requirements.
