Montana environmental regulators issued a mining permit to Tintina Montana Inc. for preparation work on a planned underground copper mine in central Montana, the Department of Environmental Quality said Friday.

The permit was issued after Tintina posted a $4.6 million bond to cover the reclamation costs for the first phase of construction at the Black Butte Copper Project about 15 miles north of White Sulphur Springs.

The permit and bond only covers preparation work, such as creating a temporary waste rock storage pad, waste water storage, roads and areas for construction materials and equipment.
