TORONTO, June 20, 2016 /CNW/ - Cerro Grande Mining Corporation (the "Company" or "CEG") (CSE-CEG) reported that its Pimenton Mine continues to be shut down due to a severe snow storm which brought 3.14 meters (10.35 feet) of snow on the second, third and fourth of June. All personnel have now been evacuated from the mine by PistenBully snowcats. The snow storm is the worst storm to hit the mine operations since 2005. The mine shut down will cause severe financial difficulties for Compania Minera Pimenton and CEG. The Company is currently taking a very proactive position in reviewing its options.
