Kodal Minerals, the mineral exploration and development company focused on its Bougouni Lithium Project in southern Mali, is pleased to provide this update on its Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (“ESIA”) application.
The Company confirms it has lodged the addendum to the ESIA application following the formal validation meeting completed on Wednesday 18 September 2019 with the Direction Nationale de l’Assainissement et du Contrôle des Pollutions et des Nuisances (“DNACPN”), the governing administration for environmental matters in Mali.
As previously announced, the addendum incorporated material to address the minor matters raised by the DNACPN in this feedback session. Following this formal submission of the addendum, the DNACPN statutory approval period of 45 days will commence.
The Company has maintained close communication with the DNACPN and all project stakeholders throughout the period of ESIA report preparation and anticipates no significant issues with the submission. The Company expects formal approval of the ESIA within the legislated timeframe. The Company will provide updates of progress in due course.
