Pumpkin Hollow Processing Plant in Action
Nevada Copper (TSX:NCU) is a US copper producer and owner of Pumpkin Hollow, which hosts an underground project that is now in production, and an open pit development. The property is located in Nevada (USA) – rated by The Fraser Institute as the World #1 mining jurisdiction. The processing facility commenced production in December, 2019, using development ore stockpiled during construction of the underground mine. The project benefits from a straightforward approach to production, together with a desert climate and local topography that facilitates efficient, eco-friendly mining techniques. In addition, the local district of Yerington is a former copper-producing region with superb infrastructure and a skilled workforce. The project’s substantial reserves and resources include copper, gold and silver and there is clear potential for deposit expansion and greenfield exploration.
