Vancouver, B.C., January 23, 2024 - Spanish Mountain Gold Ltd. (the "Company" or "Spanish Mountain Gold") (TSX-V: SPA) is pleased to announce the Company expects to receive the results of the System Impact Study (SIS) from BC Hydro (the province’s utility company) in Q2, 2024 for a new 230 kilovolt, 60 mega-watt renewable power transmission line into the Spanish Gold Mountain project ("Project") located in the Cariboo Gold Corridor near Likely, British Columbia, Canada.
As part of the ongoing project optimization work being undertaken, the transmission line was increased to a larger line than specified in the 2021 Prefeasibility Study Report* to increase available power to accommodate electrification of the mining fleet, provide flexibility in the processing circuit and other potential modifications as a result of the ongoing Project optimization currently being undertaken by the Company.
Peter Mah, Spanish Mountain Gold's President, CEO and Director comments, "The SIS with BC Hydro is an important step for the Company as we move closer to securing a renewable power supply for the proposed mine. It will also support several of our key electrification objectives that aim to lower the Project's carbon intensity and green-house gas emissions."
