TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- EPM Mining Ventures Inc. ("EPM" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: EPK) (OTCQX: EPKMF) is pleased to announce that the Utah State Engineer has approved all water rights applications for its Sevier Lake Playa Sulphate of Potash ("SOP") Project located in southwestern Utah (the "Project"). In total, five applications were granted in full as the Company had requested.
"We are very pleased with the Utah State Engineer's decision to approve all applications for our project," said Lance D'Ambrosio, Chief Executive Officer of EPM. "These water rights represent the culmination of a multi-year effort, mark a significant milestone that substantially de-risks the project, and most importantly, provide us with all the water specified in our preliminary feasibility study filed last November. I want to personally thank everyone at the State Engineer's office and the entire EPM team for their contributions and to commend both groups for their professionalism. We look forward to completing the remaining permits so we can start building our specialty fertilizer project."
The five water rights applications approved by the Utah State Engineer grant sufficient brine as well as fresh water for the Sevier Playa Project to operate at its projected production capacity of 300,000 metric tonnes of SOP per year. The State Engineer considered the filings as "distinct and separate" from other water rights applications in the subject area and imposed no restrictions beyond those presented by the Company in its applications.

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
