ELKO, Nev. (AP) - The Canadian-based Veris Gold Corp. has announced plans to open a third gold mine at its Jerritt Canyon operations in northeast Nevada.
Company officials tell the Elko Daily Free Press the new Starvation Caynon mine is in the southern part of the Jerritt Canyon property in Elko County about 50 miles north of Elko. An opening ceremony is scheduled July 29.
