VANCOUVER, May 21, 2015 /CNW/ - Tintina Resources Inc. ("Tintina" or the "Company") (TSX.V:"TAU"; OTCQX: "TINTF") is pleased to announce the submission of the results of the recent aquifer test work at the Company's flagship Black Butte Copper Project to the Montana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
The aquifer test work utilized cutting-edge discharge technology that consumed water using agronomic uptake and evaporation over a 17 acre area Land Application Disposal (LAD) system under timed controlled releases, which eliminated infiltration to groundwater or discharge to surface water. All local water resources were completely protected by using this system. The results of the test will be made available on the Tintina website along with other completed studies on the project.
Tintina has contracted an independent consultant, Hydrometrics, Inc., based in Helena, Montana, to complete a detailed hydrological model using the test data which will be included in Tintina's application for a Mine Operating Plan (MOP).
The MOP application will comply with all environmental regulations including presenting a clear plan to prevent any detrimental effect to water quality or quantity in the nearby drainages during operations, and a return to a natural water balance at mine closure.
A series of open-to-the-public tour days will occur on the first day in each month. The tours will visit the project site and participants will have an opportunity to discuss our plans at our main office in White Sulphur Springs, Montana.
Vice President of Exploration Jerry Zieg stated, "We are pleased to make these results available to everyone as we progress with our detailed studies on the Black Butte Copper Project. Water quality is critical to all of us and we are committed to 'Doing it Right from the Beginning'. Please come and visit us, take a tour, and ask us questions."
