WUM strikes Celeste agreement


The prospect of production returning to South Crofty mine in Pool appears to be a step closer.

Western United Mines (WUM), which owns and operates the mine, announced today that a conditional earn-in agreement has been entered into with Canada-based Celeste Copper Corporation.

CEO Alan Shoesmith said: “I’m delighted to report that this agreement has been reached. It represents another major step forward with our progress in getting South Crofty back into production.”

In a statement, WUM said it would be making no further comment until completion or termination of the agreement.
