ENP Newswire - 17 July 2014
Release date- 16072014 - URU Metals, the multi-commodity exploration and development company is pleased to announce the appointment of environmental consultants to lead a base line environmental study over the Narke Oil-Uranium Project located in Sweden.
The Study is an essential constituent in an application for a Mining Concession and Environmental Permit.
Svenska Skifferoljeaktiebolaget ('SSOAB'), URU Metals' 100% owned subsidiary, has engaged Pelagia Miljokonsult AB, a leading Swedish environmental consultant, to undertake the Study. The Study covers areas of consideration including fauna, flora and water quality, and will establish the pre-mining base line of the six licences that form the Narke Project.
John Zorbas, Chief Executive Officer, commented: 'The Narke Oil-Uranium Project is an attractive dual commodity project with an exploration target of 1.47 billion tonnes containing 303,000 tonnes U3O8 and 525 million barrels of oil equivalent.
The commencement of a base line environmental study is a key development as we look to unlock the potential of this significant asset and advance our licences into Exploitation Concessions ahead of commercial oil and uranium production. I look forward to providing further updates in due course regarding resource delineation, environmental studies and feasibility reports as we look to demonstrate the tangible value of this exciting asset.'
