Rathdowney Resources Ltd. announces that its corporate focus in 2020 will be exclusively on advancing toward securing a Mining License for its 100%-owned Project Olza – a zinc-lead-silver underground development project in Poland’s well-established Upper Silesian mining district.
Securing a Mining License for Project Olza requires a multi-faceted scope of work, largely to be undertaken by Rathdowney’s in country Polish team, and includes: Environmental Documentation Completion; Community and Stakeholder Engagement; Land Zoning Changes; ongoing Geological Data Filings; and engineering support for the Polish PZZ (site development and underground mining plan). Near-term work at Project Olza is focused on finalizing environmental documentation to support project permitting, as well as on-going community engagement. The concentration of Rathdowney’s 2020 program solely toward environmental and socioeconomic technical work has contributed to the departure from the Company of Mr. J.R.H. (Dick) Whittington, who will step down as President and CEO of Rathdowney Resources Ltd., and resign from the Company’s Board of Directors.
