Amid its changing strategy, to strengthen its position in Spain, the company highlighted that it is in the process of setting up its head office in Madrid. It is also seeking to appoint a ‘suitably qualified Spanish National’ to replace departed managing director and chief executive Paul Atherley.
The company’s shares were listed on the Spanish Stock Exchange in 2018.
“The company continues to await the Express Resolution on the award of the Urbanism Licence from the local municipality,” Berkeley said in a statement.
It added: “The company has provided the Nuclear Safety Council with all requested documentation and continues to await their recommendation report, the timing of which remains uncertain.”
At the same time, the company intends to continue a recently announced battery and EV metals exploration strategy with an initial six-hole drill programme slated.
Berkeley also noted the trend in global uranium prices.
“The uranium price weakened during the quarter due to uncertainty surrounding President Trump's decision on the Section 232 Petition,” it said.
“However subsequent to the quarter, a decision by the President to decline issuing quotas for US domestic uranium production was announced. The decision is expected to contribute to improved market conditions moving forward, as US utilities, in particular, continue their recontracting cycle.”
