TSX-V-listed Artemis Gold has announced the start of site works at its Blackwater project, in British Columbia, marking the commencement of on-site work to prepare the project for the start of major works construction activities in the first quarter of 2023.
The majority of the programme is expected to be completed by December , with final installation of a full-capacity wastewater treatment system and drainage system scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2023.
The programme also provides for an increase in permanent on-site personnel who will facilitate training, along with the refinement and improvement of onsite environmental, health, and safety protocols and operating procedures.
“The start of site preparation activities marks the start of a new phase for Artemis and the Blackwater project as we prepare for the start of major construction activities in the first quarter of 2023 following receipt of the BC Mines Act Permits in Fall 2022.
"This program also provides an opportunity for the Artemis construction team to refine onsite training, improve safety standards and refine operational procedures as we ramp up activities ahead of the start of major works," said chairperson and CEO Steven Dean.
