Soledad Mountain Project Receives Waste Discharge Approval

TSX: GQM

VANCOUVER, July 16 /CNW/ - Golden Queen Mining Co. Ltd. is pleased to announce that on July 14, 2010, the Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board (the "Board") unanimously approved Waste Discharge Requirements and a Monitoring and Reporting Program (the "WDRs") for the Soledad Mountain Project. The Board recommended adopting an order approving the WDR's, which the Company expects will be issued upon finalization of the location of an additional ground water monitoring well. The order approving the WDRs establishes the discharge and monitoring standards for the project and is a critical authorization for the construction and operation of the heap leach pads, rock stockpiles and other activities that have the potential to affect surface and ground waters.
