WestMountain Gold Begins Field Season at Terra Project, Alaska; Restart of Bulk Sample Gold Production
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- WestMountain Gold, Inc. ("WestMountain") (OTCQB:WMTN), an emerging mineral exploration and development company, has commenced operations at the Terra Project in Alaska for the 2013 field season. The operations include an upgrade of the pilot mill facility, construction of a C-130 aircraft capable runway, road construction and mine portal construction. This infrastructure expansion should result in the recovery of gold during the 2013 season. An exploration and drill program will follow later in the season.
In April 2013, two bulldozers were added into the project, allowing aggressive plans for the season to get under way, including a scaled-up bulk sample program with a revamped pilot mill and underground mining. These developments are integral to the extraction of the natural resources at this location. Expansion of the gold and silver resource at the Ben Vein Zone through exploratory drilling will continue.
With the recent publication of a NI 43-101 Technical Report showing a solid increase in tons and inferred ounces of gold and silver and budgetary assets in place for the season, President and CEO Greg Schifrin is encouraged by the Company's recent milestones. "This infrastructure expansion should result in an increase in gold production during the 2013 season. The construction at Terra will provide the foundation for the company to move forward with resource development and gold recovery," he says. He believes the high-grade deposit at this project will yield more than a million ounces of gold over the life of the mine.
