April 22, 2015 Update

Comstock Mining has been working diligently at placing compacted fill in lifts to an engineered design in the area above and around the Silver Hill Shaft.

The photo above was taken at the point that the new fill material was at approximately 18 feet above bedrock. The mine had 14 feet to go before reaching road level.

Comstock Mining’s next milestones are to obtain NDOT ‘s approval for the new shoofly access, complete the AT&T underground utility installation and conclude the temporary bypass construction.
