Berkeley also said it is continuing to focus on progressing the approvals required to commence construction of its Salamanca mine in Spain and bring it into production.

The company said it has continued to engage with relevant authorities in a collaborative manner to facilitate the timely resolution of the pending approvals required to commence construction of the mine.

The group added that following new restrictions from the Spanish government towards the end of July due to a surge of new coronavirus cases in the country, it has implemented a work from home policy and expects its teams to begin working from the Madrid and Retortillo offices at the end of the European summer.

The company has also met with the relevant officials of the Municipality of Retortillo during the quarter to ensure that it has all the required information to be able to award the firm an urbanism licence.
