Update on the Hautalampi Environmental Impact Assessment process

Stockholm, 26 September 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, the majority owner of the Hautalampi project, has received a request for additional information for the Hautalampi project Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Report from the North Karelia Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (“ELY-centre“).  Eurobattery Minerals owns 40% of FinnCobalt and has an option to increase the ownership to 100%.

The complex nature of the former copper mine site requires more information on the current environmental situation to be submitted as a part of the Environmental Impact Assessment. The authorities also require some more detailed technical information, especially about the proposed Tailings Storage Facilities. 

“Our view is that these requirements will help and speed up the process of the final environmental permit application. The work to complete the EIA and preparation of the final environmental permit application will now commence simultaneously,” comments Roberto García Martínez, CEO of Eurobattery Minerals AB.
