Magellan application rejected
Magellan Gold Corp. of Reno said last week that the Bureau of Land Management rejected an application from the company to explore claims near Sand Springs in Churchill County.
The federal agency said the claims aren’t accessible because of a nearby state highway right-of-way and material sites. Magellan leases the claims from RS Gold LLC.
Construction could begin next year and require about 500 to 600 workers, with a permanent workforce starting at 150 to 200 people with potential to expand.
