Elemental Minerals gets potash mining license in Republic of Congo

PERTH, AUSTRALIA: Elemental Minerals Ltd has been awarded a mining license for its Sintoukola Potash project in the Republic of Congo (RoC). The award of the mining license marks another positive step in the key permitting requirements and taken in conjunction with the expected approval of the application for the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) Permit, will mark the completion of the key permitting stage. The ESIA application was submitted to the Ministry of Mines on 17 December 2012.

“This timely approval continues to demonstrate the support for the high quality Sintoukola Potash project. The mining license is another positive step in the development of the project and puts Elemental in a strong position to begin construction once our engineering and feasibility work is completed. It also emphasises the seriousness with which the RoC Government is committed to the development of mining assets in the region,” said Iain Macpherson, CEO, Elemental Minerals.
