EPM Mining Ventures Inc. announces favorable decision in IBLA appeal07:00 EDT Monday, April 22, 2013
TORONTO, April 22, 2013 /CNW/ - EPM Mining Ventures Inc. ("EPM" or the "Company") (TSXV: EPK - OTCQX: EPKMF) announced today that it has obtained a favorable decision from the Interior Board of Land Appeals ("IBLA") affirming the Bureau of Land Management's ("BLM") Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact on the Sevier Playa Potash Exploratory Testing Proposal and Environmental Assessment and denying the appeal by Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance ("SUWA") of said Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact. This concludes the final appeal by SUWA to the BLM's decisions regarding leasing and exploration.
Lance D'Ambrosio, Chief Executive Officer of EPM, said; "We are extremely happy with this ruling. Once again, we believe the IBLA did an excellent job of analyzing the issues and basing its decision on firm precedent. As we have said in the past, the appeals by SUWA were baseless and without merit and this decision, along with the previous ones, confirms that."
This action by the IBLA favorably resolves all outstanding environmental appeals and petitions.
