Ready, Set, Go Drill
Today Eastport Ventures received its long awaited approval of its Environmental Management Plan or EMP for our Jwaneng North diamond project in Botswana.
The Environmental Assessment Act (2010) and it's Regulations require both Environmental and Archaeological Impact studies be completed prior to any significant prospecting activities; 'read' - drilling and/or earth moving programmes. The EMP does not, however, allow for testing mining, mining or any major developments.
A number of recommendations were made in the EMP and Eastport will address each during the design and implementation phases of our drilling programme. The overall conclusion of the EMP was that all potential "impacts identified are mitigatable".
Lets go drilling!
