EPM Mining Ventures Inc. (TSXV:EPK,OTCQX:EPKMF) announced that the Utah Division of Air Quality has given its approval for a minor source air permit application for the Sevier Lake Playa Sulphate of Potash project in southwestern Utah. EPM has pursued a “dual permit approach” to their air quality management program.

As quoted in the press release:

The Minor Source Permit application was submitted to UDAQ in October 2013 and, in July 2013, EPM began on-site monitoring for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration or the Major Source Permit. The Minor Source Permit will allow civil construction on the playa while the Major Source Permit will allow construction and operation of the processing plant once other necessary permits have been received.

EPM CEO, Lance D’Ambrosio, said:

The decision by UDAQ to grant the Minor Source Permit is very gratifying and another important step forward in the permitting process. Once we have our final permits, this will allow us to perform on-playa earthwork and civil engineering. Additionally, we continue monitoring for our Major Source Permit, which is required for construction of our processing facility, and look forward to receiving that at the appropriate time.
