Cononish Approval


This approval, passed unanimously by the full National Park Board (at a special meeting 27th February – subject to the conclusion of a Section 75 agreement) is the latest in the development of Cononish Gold Mine.  It represents a very significant step towards a fully operational commercial mine.

The successful Bulk Processing Trial has been completed and demonstrated the reality of ethical and environmentally sound, Scottish gold production.

The proposal makes use of dry stack tailings management and reduces the potential environmental effects of the mine compared to the previously consented mining operation.
