Drilling at the Ngami Copper Project is to be allowed to proceed under an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) as agreed with the Botswana Department of Environmental Affairs. The timeframe to complete the EMP process is normally four months.
The Okavango copper project, on the other hand, will require a more detailed Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to be produced prior to permission to drill being granted.
The timeframe to complete the more detailed EIA process, through to grant, is normally nine months.
