Northern Iron Corp. (TSXV:NFE,OTCQX:NHRIF,FWB:N8I) announced it has started dewatering it north pit past producing Griffith mine.
Northern’s President and CEO, Basil Botha said:
Dewatering is an important milestone that will enable us to position diamond drills on the benches and drill out the resource. This event brings us another step closer to reaching our objectives in working towards putting the Griffith mine back into production. The first phase of the dewatering program will begin at a rate of approximately 72,000 litres a minute (19,000 gallons) and will be discharged into Bruce Lake, which is an adjoining water body that covered the Griffith property prior to the construction of dykes to permit the mining of the ore body.
