APP-002545 - RENEWAL APPLICATION OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE FOR EPANGELO MINING’S PROPOSED EXPLORATION ACTIVITIES ON EPLs 4833, 4817 and 4818, LOCATED IN OMARURU DISTRICT, ERONGO REGION, NAMIBIA.

Epangelo has been seeking to acquire a local partner (JG Investment Sixteen) in order to secure funding for their proposed exploration activities. The contracts and agreements with JG Investment Sixteen have therefore been finalized for EPL 4817; hence, the request for the ECC renewal, in order to immediately commence with their exploration programme. However, a different local partner has been acquired for the other two EPLs (4833 and 4818), therefore, a separate ECC Renewal Process has been undertaken for them. In addition, there has not been any exploration activities conducted on EPL 4817, during the validity period of the ECC.
