environmental permits

Peruvian law requires the approval of an environmental study by the Ministry of Energy and Mines in order to be able to explore and or exploit a tenement. There are different types of studies according to the extent of the activities to be performed during the exploration and or exploitation.

On December 2012 Ferrobamba received the approval of a Declaration of Environmental Impact for Exploration (DIA) that allows the drilling of up 20 platforms.

Currently we are working on a Semi Detailed Environmental Impact Study for Exploration (EIAsd) that allows the drilling of unlimited platforms.
