Goldgroup Mining Inc. (TSX: GGA; OTC Other: GGAZF) responded today to recent unconfirmed Mexican newspaper articles quoting certain statements by the Governor of the State of Veracruz on the environmental permitting regarding Goldgroup’s Caballo Blanco project.
In the release Keith Piggott, President and CEO of Goldgroup, stated, “We agree with the reported comment by the Governor of the State of Veracruz that our project should be designed with the welfare of all stakeholders in mind. The Federal Government has not denied our mining operating permit and we continue to work closely with all stakeholders of the Caballo Blanco project to create a sustainable mining operation for all parties involved. Our current work program at Caballo Blanco is being conducted under already issued Federal permits and is not affected by the current permitting process. We will continue to be in discussions with, and take into consideration the views of, both the Federal and State Governments in Mexico to continue to move our mining project forward.”
