Rokmaster Receives Environmental Impact Drill Permit Approval
|(March 31, 2014, Vancouver, B.C., Canada) -- Rokmaster Resources Corp. ("Rokmaster" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its wholly owned Peruvian subsidiary, Minera Pinaya Peru S.A., has received from the General Bureau of Environmental Affairs ("DGAAM") of the Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MEM") of Peru, the Directorial Resolution No. 147-2014-MEM/DGAAM, approving the Company's Environmental Impact Statement (Declaracion de Impacto Ambiental or "DIA") for the diamond drilling-work for a maximum of 20 drill platform sites on its Pinaya copper-gold porphyry project in Peru. |
Immediately following receipt of the DIA approval, the Company applied for its water permit and receipt is expected next week after which an "Authorization to Commence Activities" will be requested from the MEM.
In anticipation of the Company's first ever core drill program, bids for the diamond drilling have been received and are being reviewed. Initial drilling will target the following: oxide-gold zones with near-term heap-leach potential; south extensions of the current porphyry copper-gold area; and the new porphyry copper-silver discovery, 12km south of the same. The initial areas to be drilled occur central to the 25 km long (192 sq.km.) Pinaya concession package located on the Eocene porphyry belt extending from Chile into Peru and is the same belt that hosts world class porphyry deposits such as: GlencoreXstrata's Tintaya-Antapaccay and Las Bambas deposits, First Quantum's Haquira deposit, HudBay Mineral's Constancia deposit, Grupo Mexico's Las Chancas deposit and Panoro Mineral's Cotabambas deposit.
John Mirko, President of Rokmaster commented, "Receipt of the DIA approval is the result of a very complex series of procedures undertaken by the Company in compliance with the new rules introduced by MEM in 2012. We wish to very much thank our team and consultants, the local communities and landowners, the MEM and government of Peru, DREM Puno and our shareholders for their continued support in moving the project to the drilling stage."
