Pershing Gold has been working swiftly to advance the Relief Canyon project in Pershing County, Nevada. The company announced that its focus is on the Prefeasibility Study (PFS) and restart of the mine. Stephen D. Alfers, Pershing's president, CEO and executive chairman, stated, "Early this year the Company plans to publish a third-party Pre-Feasibility Study on Relief Canyon. This study is expected to continue to bolster the confidence in the Relief Canyon project."
