VANCOUVER, British Columbia – March 27, 2024 – Euro Manganese Inc. (TSX-V and ASX: EMN; OTCQX: EUMNF; Frankfurt: E06), an ASX listed battery materials company , is thrilled to announce a significant milestone in the development of the Chvaletice Manganese Project in the Czech Republic. The Company has received the approval of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) from the Czech Ministry of Environment, marking a pivotal step forward in the project's progression. Additionally, Euro Manganese is excited to welcome Mr. Tim Kindred as the newly appointed Project Director for the Chvaletice Project.

Key Highlights of the Announcement:

  • Approval of ESIA: The Czech Ministry of Environment has granted approval for the ESIA of the Chvaletice Manganese Project. This approval is a testament to Euro Manganese's commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility. The successful ESIA process, which involved extensive stakeholder engagement, received no opposition or comments from local stakeholders, underscoring the project's broad support.

  • Appointment of Project Director: Mr. Tim Kindred, a seasoned professional with extensive experience in project delivery within the mining and metals sector, has been appointed as Project Director. Mr. Kindred's expertise will be invaluable as the Chvaletice Project moves into the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management (EPCM) phases.

About the ESIA Approval:

The approval of the ESIA by the Czech Ministry of Environment is the culmination of a rigorous four-year process, involving positive opinions from 14 separate government authorities. This key permit paves the way for subsequent permits and progresses the project towards the final determination of the Mining Lease.

Appointment of Mr. Tim Kindred:

Mr. Tim Kindred brings a wealth of experience to the Chvaletice Project, with a strong background in hydrometallurgy and a proven track record in leading large-scale projects from feasibility through to construction and commissioning. His appointment is a strategic move to ensure the successful delivery of the Chvaletice Project, which is poised to become a significant player in the global manganese market.

Dr. Matthew James, President & CEO of Euro Manganese, commented:

Approval of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for the Chvaletice Project is a major permitting and project milestone. It is a testament to the diligent approach and many years of effort by both our Czech team, who have engaged with multiple stakeholder groups along the way, and our engineering team, who have integrated feedback into our plans. What remains constant is our desire to minimize project impacts and maximise social benefits throughout the lifespan of our operations. We look forward to advancing the now more procedural follow-on permits to develop a world-class facility capable of producing high-purity manganese, an essential component in lithium-ion batteries for EV vehicles.

Additionally, we welcome Tim Kindred to the Euro Manganese team. His skills and capabilities in developing complex battery metal projects, together with his proven-track record in delivering large-scale projects on time and on budget will be extremely valuable for us as we progress both FEED and EPCM work, including the construction of the Chvaletice Project.”
