Project Background 

Mineral Park is located approximately 13 miles northwest of Kingman, Arizona in Mohave County. It is an open-pit copper and molybdenum mine with an existing TSF, dumps, process solution management systems, mill, and other ancillary facilities. Copper is recovered from leach solution using conventional solvent extraction electrowinning (SX/EW) technology. Sunstone has provided environmental management and training to site personnel since 2016.  

Major Projects

Consent Order 

In 2018, the ADEQ required a Consent Order be in place based on violations of the Aquifer Protection Permit. The Consent Order required a groundwater flow survey, increased sampling and inspections, and a historic data review in order to develop investigations reports. Sunstone worked closely with contractors for Origin Mining to manage the development of the Phase 1 and Phase 2 investigation reports. We have maintained a close working relationship with the ADEQ to ensure all parties are updated via weekly status updates. Current status?  

Restart 

Mineral Park was bought by Origin Mining, LLC in 2015; from 2015 to 2021 the mine was in care and maintenance status. Sunstone provided environmental management support since 2016 with a focus on permitting. In 2021, Origin decided to restart mining operations and Sunstone was tasked with diving into the environmental requirements associated with a restart. Need more here
