Xietongmen Copper Mine (China)


BEIJING, Nov 12 (Reuters) - Continental Minerals (KMK.V) is awaiting central government approval for a planned $520 million copper and gold mine in Tibet, which will utilize a new railway to ship ores to a smelter in inland China.

Financing from underwriters Standard Bank and Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, or ICBC, is still in the works despite a sharp global decrease in lending due to the financial crisis, said chief executive David Copeland.

The company has submitted final paperwork, including a reclamation plan, for the complex Xietongmen mine. The mine requires a series of tailing dams and water diversion engineering to prevent mining waste from contaminating the Yaluzangbu River, in arid western Tibet, said Dickson Hall, vice president of business development.
