Following the government’s decision to cancel the nationwide lockdown introduced in an attempt to mitigate the coronavirus outbreak, Canada’s Erin Ventures has said it is preparing to re-deploy its technical staff to the Piskanja boron property in Serbia. The staff will complete the balance of the fieldwork required as part of the “Elaborate of Reserves” documentation, the first step in the exploitation license process, Erin Ventures said in a news release.
The company does not anticipate any material delay from its original timelines regarding the completion of the field work and the requisite documentation, it said.
Erin Ventures suspended fieldwork on Piskanja on March 31 due to the nationwide state of emergency in Serbia caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
Piskanja is Erin Ventures’ wholly-owned high-grade boron deposit with an indicated mineral resource of 7.8 million tonnes, and an inferred resource of 3.4 million tonnes, calculated in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves.
