Jervois receives environmental approval for SMP Stage 1 construction
Australia / September 23 2022 / Jervois Global Limited (“Jervois” or the “Company”) (ASX: JRV) (TSX-V: JRV) (OTCQX: JRVMF) advises it has received an Environmental Installation License (the “LPI”) for its 100%-owned São Miguel Paulista (“SMP”) nickel cobalt refinery in São Paulo, Brazil.
This license from the State environmental regulator, Companhia Ambiental do Estado de São Paulo (“CETESB”), represents São Paulo State approval for construction of the Stage 1 SMP restart, another important milestone as Jervois continues detailed engineering on the restart prior to final investment decision.
Jervois forecasts to produce 10,000 metric tonnes per annum (“mtpa”) and 2,000 mtpa of refined nickel and cobalt metal cathode respectively in Stage 1.
SMP is Latin America’s only electrolytic class 1 nickel and cobalt refinery and operated successfully for more than 30 years prior to being placed on care and maintenance.
On behalf of Jervois Global Limited,
Bryce Crocker, Chief Executive Officer
