Pacific Booker has concluded a $6m environmental assessment of its wholly-owned Morrison Copper gold project and submitted its environmental application, placing it one step closer to commercial production.

It is one of two major mining projects for British Columbia to make progress this week, both spurred on by increasing demand from China and India.

The Copper Mountain project outside Princeton received approval from the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources to proceed with new mill foundation construction enabling the company to start building what should be BC’s next major copper mine.

Final mine permit amendments are expected in the near future for the $70m mill foundation construction work.

Copper Mountain plans to start production by mid-2011.
