Paramount Gold Nevada (NYSE: PZG) announced on Friday that its environmental evaluation outline for its Grass Mountain Gold Mine has received approval by all Oregon State agencies involved in the permitting process.

The Environmental Evaluation outline is a comprehensive document including in-depth analysis of the operation, assessing potential environmental impacts and ensuring that the proposed plan is the best possible development option.

“The Environmental Evaluation is a critical component in the permit writing process. Knowing the scope of the data in this evaluation is sufficient for the regulators to proceed with the preparation of permits in our view confirms their commitment to progressing Grassy Mountain towards final permitting,” said Glen van Treek, Paramount’s president and chief operating officer.

According to van Treek, Paramount has made significant progress towards meeting the requirements for the issuance of permits and expects that the state will issue them within the 225 days set out by the regulation, provided the Consolidated Permit Application is deemed complete.

NevGold’s Resurrection Ridge could host a million ounces

NevGold Corp. (TSXV:NAU) (OTCQX:NAUFF) (Frankfurt:5E50) is another company operating in Nevada. More specifically its Resurrection Ridge target is beginning to bring back solid results.

“Needless to say the Resurrection Ridge target is now shaping up like it could host a million ounces by itself and this could push the greater Limousine Butte project closer to becoming a 2 million ounce deposit once you add in Cadillac Valley and the low-hanging fruit there,” according to a recently released report.

Nevgold Corp. is presently trading at $0.42 on the TSX Venture Exchange.
