Canadian Company Seeks SD OK For Gold Exploration

August 23, 2012, 8:56 AM


A Canadian company planning to explore for gold in South Dakota's Black Hills is seeking state authorization to drill up to 250 test holes.

Mineral Mountain Resources Ltd. has applied for an exploration permit from the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Officials with the Vancouver, British Columbia, company hope the exploration on about six acres of land will lead to the development of an underground gold mine near Keystone.

Mike Cepak with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources says officials are seeking more information on ownership of surface rights and mineral rights.

Company officials say the exploration work would have little impact on the community or the environment. The company would be required to have a reclamation plan.
