VISA Consultores was also continuing to work on an environmental impact statement assessment for the project.

David Archer, chief executive of Savannah, said that the “high calibre team” now in place underpinned Mina do Barroso’s “significance” in European de-carbonisation and the development of electric vehicles.
He added that the feasibility study was “progressing well” and is aimed for completion next year.
Earlier in November, the company was boosted by the discovery of three new lithium pegmatites in the Pinheiro deposit at the project, providing “significant potential” to increase the current mineral resource to its current figure of over 20mln tonnes.
