Shawshank, VA 6/14/12 (StreetBeat) – General Moly, Inc. (NYSE: GMO) today, announced that a Nevada State District Court ("the Court") issued its Order affirming the Nevada State Engineer's ("the NSE") Ruling of July 2011 approving the Mt. Hope Project's water rights and the NSE's December 2011 and January 2012 issuance of water permits for the Mt. Hope Project.
The 59 page Order, which has been posted to the Press Release section of the Company's website, describes the Petitioners' arguments before the Court and denies all Petitioners' respective petitions for Judicial Review.
Bruce D. Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of General Moly, said, "I am extremely pleased that the State Engineer's thorough and inclusive process in approving the Mt. Hope Project's water rights and permits has been affirmed by the Court. Obtaining water rights for the Mt. Hope Project has been a long process and I am eager to move beyond the protests and appeals of the past three years toward a more positive and engaged dialogue with the County of Eureka and its citizens. The 3M Plan, approved by the NSE earlier this week, provides mitigation protections to other water users if impacts are caused by the Mt. Hope project. With full access to our water rights and permits we look forward to the receipt of our remaining State and Federal permits and initiating construction activities later this year. The Mt. Hope project is moving forward."
