Aurcana Receives CMA’s Environmental Sustainability Hardrock “Best of Best” Award

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aurcana Corporation ("Aurcana" or the "Company") (AUN.V) The Colorado Mining Association (CMA) awarded Ouray Silver Mining Inc, owned by Aurcana Corporation, it’s 2018 Hardrock “Best of the Best” Environmental Sustainability Award for 2018.

CMA’s “Best of the Best” Hardrock Environmental Sustainability Award promotes sustainable practices and builds positive public perceptions of our modern mining industry by providing the opportunity for mining operators to demonstrate their proactive commitment and approaches to environmental sustainability.  

At Ouray Silver’s Revenue-Virginius Mine, in Ouray, Colorado, the company worked to solve a materials handling challenge by identifying a beneficial reuse for its waste rock and tailings generated by its mining operations. With approval of the State of Colorado, the company donates waste rock and tailings to Ouray County and the US Forest Service for road base and compacted fill materials along County Road 361 which provides access to the Yankee Boy Basin and Imogene Pass to Telluride. The ability to mix tailings and waste rock that can be reused reduces tailing impoundments by 30% over the life of the mine.

CMA President Stan Dempsey, Jr praised Ouray Silver for receiving CMA’s Environmental Sustainability Award. “Congratulations to Ouray Silver for being recognized by their mining peers in receiving this prestigious award demonstrating the company’s commitment to applying the very highest environmental practices that benefit the local community and Colorado’s thriving tourist economy.”

CMA is an industry organization, founded in 1876, whose more than 500 members include the producers of coal and other minerals throughout Colorado, the west and the world. The association also counts within its membership both individuals and organizations providing equipment, services, supplies and other support to the industry.
