Revett Minerals Inc. provided a detailed update regarding the November 16th, 2011 opinion issued by United States Court of Appeals Ninth Circuit.
This opinion upheld the May 2010 decision from the U.S. Federal District Court of Montana, dismissing Endangered Species Act (ESA) challenges to the Company's proposed Rock Creek silver and copper mine in northwest Montana.
John Shanahan, President & CEO stated "We are pleased and greatly encouraged that the Ninth Circuit panel affirmed the Federal District Court's ruling. We now look forward to continuing our work with the agencies and advancing the project through its next steps with the completion of the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) and re-issuing the Record of Decision, hopefully by end of 2012."
