Keras Resources has said that its Diamond Creek organic phosphate mine in Utah, US, has received all ongoing approvals following an annual inspection and site visit from the Utah State mining and environmental departments.

The company will now commence the annual rehabilitation on the access roads and start trucking the approximately 5200 t of run-of mine phosphate rock remaining at the lay-down area from last year's mining campaign to the Spanish Fork processing facility. An additional 1500 t of blasted ore will similarly be excavated and hauled from the pit to Spanish Fork during the early summer months.

Russell Lamming, CEO of Keras, commented: "Post acquiring 100% ownership of this asset it is great to have all our permits and authorisations in place and be back on the mountain as we move into Spring. As part of the operational cycle of our project we will now ensure safe access for the mining season as we do each year and then start trucking additional run of mine ore to Spanish Fork as we start to ramp up our Spring marketing programme. We appreciate the ongoing support from the State authorities and we look forward to ongoing progress as we continue our value engineering processes across the business for the rest of the year."
