Kingston Resources Submits EIR
Kingston Resources just passed to the Conservation and Environment Protection Authority an environment inception report (EIR) in connection with the Misma gold project in Milne Bay, marking the beginning of the environment permitting process of the project.
“We are very excited to be taking the first steps down the environment approvals pathway for our Misima gold project,” Kingston managing director Andrew Corbett said. “Our initial engagement with the PNG’s Conservation and Protection Authority has been very constructive, with the quality of the work we have presented benefitting from the operating history of the site and extensive data available to the company.”
With the PNG Environment Act 2000, developers should submit an EIR for the project, outlining the scope of investigations. Kingston will formally present the EIR to the Conservation and Protection Authority of PNG for feedback and finalise the scope of the EIS.
Last month, Kingston continued drilling in Misima after the lifting of the COVID restrictions. The company is also finishing a pre-feasibility study.
Corbett said: “We are delighted to have our team at Misima back on the ground with the drill rigs turning again, working towards our goal of bringing the Misima gold project back into production.”
