The renewed and transferred Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) is required by Toroa Minerals Exploration (Pty) Ltd for the EPL No. 5271 with respect to the ongoing minerals exploration / prospecting activities for base and rare metals and precious metals. Minerals exploration / prospecting activities covering include the following: 1. Initial desktop exploration activities (review of existing information and all previous activities in order identify any potential target/s); 2. Regional reconnaissance field-based activities such mapping and sampling to identify areas with potential targets based on the recommendations of the desktop work; 3. Initial local field-based activities such as widely spaced mapping, sampling, surveying and possible drilling to determine the viability of any delineated local target; 4. Detailed local field-based activities such very detailed mapping, sampling, surveying and possible drilling to determine the feasibility of any delineated local target; 5. Prefeasibility and feasibility studies to be implemented on a site-specific area if the local field-based studies prove positive followed by test mining. The extent of the field-based support and logistical activities will be dependent on the scale of proposed exploration activities to be undertaken. The proposed exploration activities will be supported by existing tracks and campsites / farmstead as well as existing accommodation in the local area as may be applicable. In the absences of existing tracks, the field team will create such new tracks with the permission of the land owner/s and depending on the scale of exploration. In the absences of existing suitable campsite / farmstead, a temporary camp site will be setup at suitable locations in line with the EMP provisions within the EPL area. The size of the exploration camp will be of very limited footprints during the exploration phase.
