Precious and base metals miner, Adriatic Metals (ADT), has completed the first step in its quest to go mining at its Veovaca open cut mine, after being granted an Environmental Permit by the Bosnia and Herzegovina Ministry of Environment and Tourism.
It's a key milestone for the company, who need just two more permits to begin mining operations at its Vares project.
“We are grateful to the Ministry for expediting the issue of the Environmental Permit and are pleased that yet another step in the procedure for exploitation permission has been completed”.Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director, Paul Cronin
The company has now submitted its application for an Urban Planning Permit to the Federal Ministry of Spatial Planning.
Once it receives that permit, the company can jump the last hurdle by applying for the exploitation permit, the final tick of approval before it can start mining. The permit covers the Veovaca mine, plant and tailings facility.
As part of the approval procedure, the Ministry will hold a public hearing in Vares where members of the public can comment on the application, and if necessary, the company is given an opportunity to respond.
Adriatic Metals' Vares Project comprises a historic open cut mine at Veovaca and brownfield exploration at Rupice, an advanced proximal deposit which the company claims exhibits exceptionally high grades of base and precious metals.
Adriatic is up 1.7 per cent following the news today, selling shares for $1.19 each.
