Gemfield

Project Background 

The Gemfield Project is located just north of Goldfield, Nevada in Esmeralda County. Three significant mineralized deposits have been located at the Project through extensive exploration activities in the 1900’s. Sunstone has completed significant permitting and community outreach on the Project for Gemfield Resources since 2017 to support future Mine operations.  

Major Projects 

EIS Permitting 

Gemfield Resources began drafting the EIS in … 

Highway 95 Realignment 

Highway 95 previously crossed directly over the proposed Gemfield pit; therefore, realignment and infrastructure relocation was necessary to advance operations. The project began in 2019 and Sunstone was tasked with determining the environmental effort needed for the project. These efforts included community outreach, permit acquisition, and utility company coordination. We acquired a Joshua Tree permit from the BLM; this involved a survey to identify trees that needed to be removed and which ones would be fit for salvaging. We conducted weekly compliance checks and provided guidance for any mitigation efforts. 

Other Projects 

Micropurge Pump Installation 

After the approval of the Water Pollution Control Permit in 2019, five monitor wells required quarterly sampling. These wells had no infrastructure for sampling, so we gathered well information and ordered bladder pumps specific to each well. We installed the pumps in three of the wells and were able to complete sampling using the micropurge system. Low flow sampling provides the most representative water quality data and therefore, we were able to provide accurate data to the BMRR in our reports.
