Euro Manganese Inc. receives approval for Environmental Impact Assessment and appoints Project Director

Euro Manganese Inc. is pleased to announce the approval of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for the Chvaletice Manganese Project by the Czech Ministry of Environment. Additionally, the company has appointed Mr. Tim Kindred as Project Director for the Chvaletice Project.

ESIA Approval:

The Czech Ministry of Environment has granted a positive ESIA binding statement, endorsing the environmental and social conditions outlined in the ESIA. This achievement follows a meticulous four-year process involving 14 government authorities providing their approval, culminating in a public commentary period. Remarkably, there were no comments received from the public, NGOs, or regional municipalities during this period, underscoring the effectiveness of the stakeholder engagement efforts led by the Company’s local Czech team.

The ESIA approval serves as a critical milestone, paving the way for subsequent permits such as the Land Planning Permit and Construction Permit. Furthermore, it enables the Company to advance towards finalizing the Mining Lease for the Project.

Appointment of Project Director:

Mr. Tim Kindred has been appointed as Project Director for the Chvaletice Project. With extensive experience in large-scale project delivery, Tim will lead the team responsible for executing the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management (EPCM) phase of the Project. Initially based in Perth, Australia, Tim will later relocate to the Czech Republic during the construction phase.

Tim brings valuable expertise as a Chemical Engineer and a Graduate of the Australian Graduate School of Management. His background in hydrometallurgy and proven track record in leading project delivery across various minerals, including nickel, cobalt, copper, lithium, and gold, make him a highly skilled addition to the team. Notably, Tim played a pivotal role in the successful completion of the Vale Long Harbour Project, a US$5 billion nickel processing plant project, demonstrating his ability to deliver complex projects on time and within budget.
