FLORENCE, Ariz. – Curis Resources Ltd. is pleased to announce the receipt of an Aquifer Protection Permit (APP) from the State of Arizona’s Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ). This permit applies to the design, operation and closure of Phase 1 operations at Florence Copper.

“The receipt of our Phase 1 operating permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality is a key milestone for the company as we look forward to the start of construction and development of the Florence Copper project,” said Michael McPhie, Curis President and CEO.

On Sept. 28, Curis Resources (Arizona) Inc. received an Aquifer Protection Permit for the Phase 1 development of the Florence Copper project.

This permit authorizes the construction, operation and closure of a 24 well in-situ copper recovery (ISCR) operation at the company’s project site in Florence. The ISCR injection and recovery well system will be accompanied by a state of the art solvent extraction/electrowinning (SX/EW) facility that is designed to produce 99.999 percent pure copper cathode sheets.

“We appreciate the professionalism and dedication of the leadership, scientists and engineers of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality,” commented Dan Johnson, General Manager and Vice President of Environment and Technical Services with Curis in Arizona.

“Their thorough evaluation of this operation ensures that Florence Copper will be built and operated in a safe and responsible manner that fully protects public health and the water resources of Arizona. This permit establishes a robust system for environmental monitoring and enforcement at Florence Copper, while encouraging ongoing technical and scientific collaboration between our company and agency staff, and provides important opportunities for public involvement. As we’ve said so many times, if we can’t do this safely, we can’t do it.”

Curis Resources Ltd. is a mineral development company associated with Hunter Dickinson Inc., a diversified global mining company with a 25-year history of mineral development success.

Curis is focused on the acquisition, development and operation of high-quality next-generation copper properties around the world. For more information, visit FlorenceCopper.com.
