Renascor Resources (RNU) advises it has lodged a Program for Environment Protection and Rehabilitation for the proposed Siviour Graphite Mine.

The company explained the program was an important step for its wider Battery Anode Material Project, which aims to be the first vertical operation outside China.

The PERP will seek approval from the South Australian Government for RNU’s proposed processing capacity of up to 1.65 million tonnes per annum, producing up to 150,000 tonnes of graphite concentrates per year as well.

The graphite concentrates will then be used by the company as feedstock to produce purified spherical graphite from its vertical operation.

The PERP is the second stage of the two-step State Government approval for its operation, with the mining lease granted in 2019.

Renascor has been advised that the program will require a minimum review period of up to four months, if no major revisions are required.

Managing Director David Christensen said having the PERP lodged was a big milestone for the business.

“The lodgement of the PEPR is a significant milestone in the development of the Siviour Project and is underpinned by extensive stakeholder engagement and technical studies, independent expert reviews and comprehensive discussions with the South Australian Department for Energy and Mining over a five-year period,” Mr Christensen said.

“With the PEPR now lodged, we look forward to continued engagement with the local community and the State Government as we move through the final regulatory phases to permit the commencement of mining at Siviour in a manner that minimises environmental impacts and maximises the social and economic benefits to the local and wider communities.”

Company shares are trading in the grey at 15 cents each at 11:34 am AEST.
