Black Rock Canyon Mine Begins Field Testing with Geotextile Tubes
TORONTO, September 20, 2010 - Pacific Gold Corp. (Pink Sheets: PCFG) announced today that the Black Rock Canyon Mine will begin testing Geotextile tubes for dewatering tailings from the mine screening plant in October.
Previously the Company tested Geotextile tubes in a lab setting, with gravel ore from the mine, to test the ability of the Geotextile tubes to contain tailings while allowing clean water to pass through the tubes for reuse. These lab tests were successful and the next step is a full scale field test.
The mine plans to run its on-site stockpile of approximately 9,000 tons of gravel (approximately of a month of anticipated normal production) in order to test the Geotextile tubes on site in preparation for beginning full scale mining operations.
The Company expects to complete the field testing of the Geotextile tubes by the end of October.
