Altus Strategies receives EIA for silver and copper project in Morocco
Miningreview - The company has received environmental impact assessment (EIA) approval from the Ministry of Interior, Administrator of the Draa Tafilalet Region and Regional Centre of Investment for the project.
The EIA was completed in Q1 2020 by an independent Moroccan environmental consultancy and specifies the baseline environmental conditions and details to be met by the company. The EIA represents a key milestone in the process of converting the current exploration licence into a mining licence, says Altus Strategies chief executive Steven Poulton.
The approval is valid for a period of five years and is renewable thereafter. Attainment of the approval of an EIA is a key milestone for the granting of a future mining licence and to undertaking mining activities thereafter.
