TORONTO, Oct. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - ROMARCO MINERALS INC. (TSX: R) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the US Army Corps of Engineers ("Corps") has issued its Record of Decision ("ROD") and granted a permit under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act for the Company's 100%-owned Haile Gold Mine project ("Haile"), located in South Carolina, USA. The ROD explains the Corps' reasons in supporting the issuance of the 404 permit and the permit is immediately effective. The Corps does not have an administrative appeal process available for permit opponents after the issuance of the ROD and thus the Environmental Impact Statement ("EIS") process is officially complete. The 404 permit is the only required Federal environmental permit for Haile.
Diane Garrett, President & CEO stated: "We are exceedingly proud of the Haile project, which has satisfied all of the applicable federal environmental processes with the culmination of comprehensive environmental and technical studies and analyses. I want to recognize our team members who have worked diligently and cooperatively throughout the many stages of the permitting process. We have engaged and been transparent with the local community and all stakeholders since we arrived in South Carolina, and I want to personally thank everyone for their support of the project. We will continue to manage and operate Haile under the highest environmental standards."
Photos of the 404 permit signing will be available shortly at www.romarco.com.
