North American project development is governed by three levels of increasingly stringent analyses to evaluate the environmental impacts of proposed projects.
The CuMo Project and exploration teams have completed the lower level permits and are currently working under the middle level permit. Idaho CuMo Mining Corporation is currently in the process of gathering the required scientific information to advance to the next permit level, and to make informed, responsible and intelligent decisions.
ICMC is committed to the sustainable development of natural resources. Environmental stewardship and responsible practices will guide all stages of exploration and development. With a long-term vision and proactive approach to addressing environmental issues, the Company is acting with integrity, meeting and exceeding all required permits and regulations, and is in full cooperation with state and federal regulatory agencies. ICMC is engaging an inter-agency task force to fully address any environmental concerns.
The CuMo exploration team maintained Best Management Practices with respect to groundwater, hydrogeology and environmental protection in conducting its federally approved activities on private and public lands during previous exploration programs, and will continue these same practices into the future.
