Highfield Resources Ltd has provided an update on the Muga Potash Mine permitting process.
One of the key benefits of Muga is its location in Spain, and specifically in Navarra and Aragón where there is excellent access to infra-structure for transportation and electrical power.
Highfield would like to advise that it has been granted the administrative authorisation for construction of key sections of the high voltage electrical supply line needed to build the Mine.
Highfield CEO, Ignacio Salazar, said: “Receiving these authorisation permits for these key sections of the power line from Sangüesa to the mine portal is an important step in the permitting process and shows the overall level of confidence the administration has in the project.”
On 11 September 2020, the Industry Department of the Government of Navarra granted the administrative authorisation for construction of the high voltage electrical supply from Sangüesa to the planned principal substation on site, including the substation. On 15 September 2020, the Industry Department of central government granted the complementary authorisation for the continuation of the high voltage connection from the principal substation up to and including the planned portal substation.
Notwithstanding the normal local construction licences, and subject to the issue of the mining concession, these authorisations are the essential approvals necessary to proceed with the construction of the over-head lines and substations that will provide grid power to the Muga Mine.
