Berkeley Energia Ltd (LON:BKY) has been granted a land-use permit for its Retortillo project by the relevant municipal authorities in Castilla y León, Spain. The permit, known as an Urbanism Licence, is needed for construction works at the Salamanca mine.
The Authorisation for Construction for the uranium concentrate plant as a radioactive facility is now the only pending approval required to commence full construction of the Salamanca mine.
In late March 2020, the company formally submitted updated official documentation in relation to this last permit and has since held a number of meetings via teleconference calls with the Nuclear Safety Council (NSC) technical team to discuss and clarify minor queries on the updated documentation.
As requested by the NSC, the company is currently preparing written responses to these queries and will complete this task in the coming weeks.
