Namibia grants Areva licence for Trekkopje Uranium deposit

05 march 2009

Areva Resources Namibia has been granted a mining licence for the Trekkopje Uranium Mine, which would be valid for 25 years with an option of renewal thereafter.
Mines and Energy Minister Erkki Nghimtina issued the licence following a long process in compliance with international industrial, social and environmental standards.
“We are looking forward to engage in smart partnerships with the Ministry in order to assist with research and development in the Uranium Province,” company external affairs manager Malcolm Lindsay-Payne said in a statement.
Trekkopje Mine is expected to become one of the world’s 10 largest uranium mines and will also be one of the top five low-cost open-pit uranium operations in the world.
Full production is expected to resume next year with an anticipated life of mine of 11 years.
The Areva group also operates uranium mines in Kazakhstan, Niger, and Canada.
