TORONTO, May 12, 2017 /CNW/ - Cerro Grande Mining Corporation (the "Company" or "CEG") (CSE:CEG) (OTCQB:CEGMF) reported the closure of its 100% owned Pimenton mine due to a combination of a lack of adequate working capital and a series of snow storms that have and will affect operations at the mine. All personnel have been taken out of the mine. The Company could not give a date in the future when mining operations could restart. It is currently investigating all alternatives for raising additional working capital.
