October 08 www. bus- ex. com 109 Adanac Molybdenum has gone to extensive lengths to convince local communities they are sensitive to their social and environmental concerns. The award of the Mining Permit underlines this. " Ruby Creek is an example of the vibrant mining sector at work in British Columbia," said Minister of State for Mining Kevin Krueger. " The road is already in excellent working condition, and the operators are displaying that they are environmentally responsible in their actions to protect the fish habitat in Surprise Lake." A fi sh habitat reserve has been created as part of the tailings impoundment permitting process to provide safe fi sh habitat and benefi cial spawning, rearing and foraging areas in the Surprise Lake watershed, which is home to signifi cant fi sh populations. The Government tailings impoundment review is expected to complete in 2009. Adanac also has three molybdenum ( and/ or copper/ molybdenum) deposits in the US state of Nevada. The B & C Springs copper/ molybdenum deposit is located approximately 125 miles kilometers south east of Reno in an area that was extensively explored in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s by USSRAM sister companies and others. The Pine Nut molybdenum deposit is located approximately 50 miles south of Reno near the California border where a tungsten mine was operated in the 1940s and Climax Moly explored for molybdenum in the 1970s. The Cucomungo molybdenum deposit is located approximately 110 miles south- south- east of Reno.
