Canadian miner Nevsun gets permit for Timok project in Serbia
Peter Kukielski, Nevsun CEO, commented, "Our team has been working closely with the Ministry of Mining and Energy and other government agencies in Serbia over the past several months to achieve this significant milestone for the Timok Upper Zone project.
"The pre-feasibility study remains on track for release at the end of Q1 2018, after which we expect to immediately proceed with the full feasibility study work.
"We would like to thank the State of Serbia for their ongoing support of the project and our team in Serbia for their hard work in managing the permitting process."
With this permit in place, the Timok project team will commence preparatory work and contracting for construction of the decline. The exploration decline is expected to take approximately two years to reach the Timok Upper Zone orebody. ■
