TORONTO, July 4, 2016 /CNW/ - Cerro Grande Mining Corporation (the "Company" or "CEG") (CSE:CEG) (OTCQB:CEGMF)  reported that its Pimenton Mine remains closed due to a severe snow storm on the second , third and fourth of June, 2016.

As previously reported, the snow storm has caused severe financial difficulties for Compania Minera Pimenton and CEG. From an operations perspective, the Company is well along the way to the completion of an independent National Instrument 43-101 technical review of Pimenton's current proven, probable and resource position which is expected to be completed within two weeks. The Company has also submitted a high grade pillar recovery and replacement plan which is in the final review stage by SERNAGEOMIN, the Government of Chile's mining agency. From a financial perspective, the Company is actively reviewing financial alternatives to restart the Pimenton Mine.  

Cerro Grande Mining Corporation is a minerals producing, exploration and development company with properties and activities currently focused in Chile.
