Atlantic Lithium applies for Ewoyaa mining licence

Atlantic Lithium Limited has applied for a mining licence to explore Ewoyaa Lithium Mine in Ghana. The mining licence (ML) application in respect to the extraction of minerals was submitted to the Minerals Commission of Ghana (MinCom).

The firm’s application includes submission of the recent prefeasibility study (PFS), the results of which were announced in September.

The application will now be assessed by the Ghanaian government as soon as practicably possible, as part of the approval process ahead of the grant of the ML.

“The Ewoyaa lithium project . . . has a compelling case for development at a time of unprecedented lithium demand. [We have] completed extensive exploration and technical programmes, environmental and social studies, economic studies and the valuation of the project.

“As evidenced by our work to date and highlighted by the recent PFS, we can demonstrate a fundamentally robust development case at Ewoyaa, which delivers extensive social and economic benefits to our local communities and the Republic of Ghana,” Atlantic interim CEO Lennard Kolff said.

Atlantic Lithium would be working closely with MinCom, Ghana’s Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, the Environmental Protection Agency, local government authorities, host communities and other regulatory bodies towards the grant of the Ewoyaa ML.

“Our ongoing and planned activities now focus on further derisking the development timelines of the project, rapidly advancing a detailed design and construction phase and ultimately, moving into production whilst continuing to grow our exploration pipeline,” Kolff said.
