A Canadian company has bought more land and mineral rights in the Keystone area for possible development into an underground gold mine in South Dakota's Black Hills.
The company hopes to begin exploration in a few weeks. However, the company must follow state stipulations to avoid disturbing hibernating bats.
Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. of Vancouver, British Columbia, recently made two separate purchases of land in the Keystone area. Mineral Mountain Resources and its partner, Holy Terror Mining Co., now have more than 766 acres near Keystone.
The project is awaiting approval from the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
State officials say many of the drill sites are in previously explored locations, and there is no indication drilling would harm water resources.
