Stockholm, 24 May 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 FinnCobalt Oy, current owner of the Hautalampi project, has submitted the Hautalampi project Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report to the North Karelia Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (“ELY-centre“) for official review. The EIA report will present the current status of the environment of the Hautalampi mine project, the environmental impact of the assessed options as well as their significance. As soon as the environmental compatibility of the Hautalampi project is officially confirmed, one of the conditions for Eurobattery Minerals to start mining at Hautalampi will be fulfilled.
“We are very pleased that we have now completed this important step. The environmental impact assessment is a key part in our business strategy to establish a battery mineral mine and provide responsible mined European minerals. The report is comprehensive and includes all the environmental aspects of the Hautalampi project,” comments Roberto García Martínez, CEO of Eurobattery Minerals AB.
The report comprises two different options for the Tailings Storage Facility and two options for the discharge waters and has been drafted based on the EIA-programme and the competent authority’s official conclusion on the programme. The official conclusion of the Environmental Impact Assessment report is expected on 22 September 2022. FinnCobalt Oy will commence the preparation of the Environmental Permit Application immediately and will submit the application in due course.
The report has been compiled by Envineer Oy together with FinnCobalt Oy own personnel and other consultants and is available (in Finnish) at the following links:
