Thanks for the headsup on this company...it is great to be early on something with this potential...I am really excited to see any drilling results on the East Rumbullion area...their previous work shows high grades of gold...investors should study the company presentation carefully...
Hammerdown - The Permitting Begins -> Reactivation of a Past Producer
Past Producer and Near Term Opportunity at Hammerdown.
VANCOUVER, BC - Maritime Resources Corp. (MAE-TSX Venture, "Maritime") is pleased to announce that with the Prefeasibility Study ("PFS") well underway the Company has engaged independent Stantec Consulting Ltd. ("Stantec") to initiate the permitting process on Hammerdown, Rumbullion and Orion gold deposits located on the Company's Green Bay Property in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. As the Hammerdown mine recently closed in 2004 this is considered as a Brownfield status project with minimal environmental impact.
Stantec's scope of work will include the environmental planning and permitting required to support the re-activation of the past producing Hammerdown Mine.
