In November 2020, the Directorate of Mining confirmed that the appeals received in relation to the operating license for the Engebø Rutile and Garnet project did not provide any basis to revoke or change the decision, and informed that the matter had been forwarded to the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries for final decision on the appeals.
Nordic Mining ASA has earlier communicated that a final decision should be expected in the first half of 2021. This has been delayed as result of revised priorities in the Ministry due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the final decision is now expected after summer.
The Company is confident that the operating license will be retained as granted in June 2020, which grants Nordic Mining rights to all minerals in the Engebø deposit, and includes an open pit and underground phase, however, with a possibility for revision after 10 years.
