Stockholm, 30 August 2022 – The mining company Eurobattery Minerals AB (Nordic Growth Market: BAT and Börse Stuttgart: EBM; in short: “EBM”, “Eurobattery” or “the Company”) today announces that it has submitted the necessary document to the Energy & Mining Service of La Coruña, Spain, to complete the Environmental Impact Statement and the Operating Permit for its Spanish battery mineral project Corcel.
“The nickel-cobalt-copper mine in northern Spain will be instrumental in delivering responsibly mined raw material needed for a clean transition of the electric vehicle and energy industry. Due to their scarcity and as a result of the increased demand in recent years, these are recourses declared strategic by the European Union. At Eurobattery Minerals, we are committed to responding to European policymakers and businesses with battery minerals mined in Europe”, said Roberto García Martínez, CEO of Eurobattery Minerals.
More information about the documents submitted
Completion of the Environmental Impact Statement and the Operating Permit is fundamental for the start of mining operations in Corcel. In order to obtain these permits, Eurobattery Minerals has now submitted the Exploitation Project (1), the Environmental Impact Study (2), and the Restoration Plan (3) to the local authorities.
- The Exploitation Project (1) justifies that the Ni-Co-Cu resources within the Corcel project allow for developing a technically and economically viable mining project.
- The Environmental Impact Study (2) analyses the current state of the area where the project will be developed and identifies the possible impacts of the mining project’s implementation on the environment.
- Based on the Environmental Study, the proposed Restoration Plan (3) will be designed for the area’s environmental and landscape integration and ecological improvement. The Restoration Plan justifies that the development of the Corcel mining project adds value to a resource declared as strategic by the European Union due to its scarcity and increased demand in recent years. Furthermore, the development of the Corcel mine is contributing to the “ecological transition” and decarbonisation. It allows the development of an economic activity that generates wealth and employment and positively impacts the area where the project will be implemented.
About the Corcel project
The Corcel project compromises three different deposits (Castriz, Monte Mayor and Monte Castello) and is located on a large Ni-Co-Cu deposit in the northeast of Spain. Based on results from several recent drilling campaigns and independent reports, Eurobattery Minerals aims to produce minerals for a few million car batteries with a capacity of 60 kWh from the Corcel project in the future.
