British Columbia regulators have granted TSX-listed Centerra Gold approval to pump additional water – although limited volumes – for its Mount Milligan mine. The approvals, which were received earlier than anticipated, allow Centerra to pump from groundwater wells within Mount Milligan’s tailings storage facility (TSF) and from from a single groundwater well outside of the TSF for the entire life-of-mine, as well as pump up to 15% of the base flow from Philip Lake 1 until November 15. An application to further extend the pumping from Philip Lake 1 for the winter period is currently under review as planned.
