Berkeley is now awaiting the recommendation report from the Nuclear Safety Council to the relevant minister.

Meanwhile, as previously announced, Berkeley has been informed that the local municipality remains unable to award the Urbanism Licence due to a number of outstanding items. These outstanding items have been previously disclosed and are currently being addressed by the company.

As at the end of the six months to December 2018, Berkeley Energia had A$100mln in cash on the balance sheet.

In its latest quarterly report, the company said that spot uranium price continued to strengthen during the quarter, rising 4% to US$28.5 per pound by the end of the three months.

“The fundamentals for uranium remain very strong with continued supply disruption being met by a re-contracting cycle for US and EU utilities; and continued increases in global nuclear capacity,” Berkeley said.

It noted that some 2.75mln pounds of uranium (U3O8) under contract for the first six years, with another 1.25mln pounds of optional volume, at an average price of US$42 per pound.

In the statement, Berkeley detailed progress with permitting for the mine. It said it has received a number of favourable assessments from various regulatory bodies regarding radiological and environmental surveillance plans for certain aspects of the project relating to water.

The company said it awaits the recommendation report from the Nuclear Safety Council to the relevant minister.

Additionally, noted that it has been informed that the local municipality remains unable to grant the Express Resolution on the award of the Urbanism Licence due to a number of outstanding items – it clarified that these issues have been disclosed previously and are being addressed by the company.

Environment remains a priority

“The Salamanca mine is being developed to the highest international standards and the company's commitment to the environment remains a priority,” Berkeley said.

“It holds certificates in Sustainable Mining and Environmental Excellence which were awarded by AENOR, an independent Spanish government agency. The company has been re-awarded both certificates following a consultation process with the agency.”

Berkely also told investors that it continues to advance review of engineering designs for the project.

Exploration activities, meanwhile, continue. The company said that soil sampling close to the Salamanca mine site has identified other elements as well as uranium including gold, lithium, cobalt, tin and rare earths.

It has now applied for twelve new investigation permits, covering 350 square kilometres.

In a note to clients, analysts at Shore Capital noted: "In October 2018, Berkeley said that the timing of the award of the Urbanism Licence was “uncertain” but “unlikely to be received imminently”. The company, therefore, commenced a cost-reduction programme, but remains in a relatively strong financial position with A$100m of cash as of end CY2018." 

In late morning trading, shares in Berkeley Energia were 18.5% higher at 27.25p.

In a brief statement, the miner said it would update shareholders when any formal notice regarding approvals for the project, which is located around three hours west of Madrid.

It isn’t the first time the company has had to battle media speculation around potential approval for the Salamanca project after a Reuters report in October suggested the mine would not receive approval from the Spanish government despite already being given preliminary approval.

The firm was then forced to refute media speculation once again that month when more press reports emerged that the government was intending to deny permits for the mine, with Spain’s Nuclear Safety Council saying it was not the source.

In a note to clients, analysts at broker Shore Capital said that the Spanish press had "apparently" reported that approval for the project had been granted, adding that a Reuters report yesterday had said "Spain’s nuclear watchdog CSN had “endorsed” two nuclear safety studies, in “a preliminary step in the approval process”".

Shares were up 17.3% at 24.7p

A Reuters report suggested Spain’s government would not issue the required permits for construction to go-ahead, even though the project was granted preliminary approval.

READ: Berkeley Energia on track for construction to begin at Salamanca late this year

The article highlighted also that opponents of the Salamanca project will have a majority on Spain's Nuclear Safety Council when it renews its board shortly.

In a statement, Berkeley said that it had received no official notice from the Nuclear Council nor any other government department to that effect.

The company added it had contacted both the Council and Energy and Environment Ministry to clarify the position.

Two permits are needed for the work to start - a local building licence and permission to handle radioactive waste.

Berkeley shares were suspended in Australia following the article but remained trading on AIM where they fell 45% to 14.4p, valuing the group at £43mln.

“We are working closely with the relevant authorities and are confident that with due process these approvals will be forthcoming, however, in the meantime, we are taking the necessary steps to reduce costs,” Atherley said, as the company released its quarterly report.

He added: “Over the past decade we have invested over €70mln into the Salamanca mine which is located in a region suffering from some of the highest levels of youth unemployment within the European Union.

READ: Berkeley Energia welcomes Spanish support for Salamanca project

“Our future €250mln investment requires no government subsidy, will potentially generate over 2,500 direct and indirect jobs, will stimulate the return of services such as schools, petrol stations and transport to the local villages and has the potential to bring back some of the 120,000 mainly young people who have left the area over the last few years to look for employment.”

Berkeley’s quarterly report highlighted strong and growing local support for the Salamanca mine project – with a campaign receiving over 1,600 signatures, and some 22,850 job applications sent to the company.

The company noted that it is working closely with its legal advisors and it continues to seek an express resolution from the local municipality on the award of the Urbanism Licence. There are two outstanding items, which the company said it has now responded to.

It expects to will issue a further update to the market in due course regarding the likely timing of the commencement of construction. It added that, in the absence of certainty over the timing, it is initiating a programme to reduce local and corporate costs.

Looking outward, the company noted continued strength in the uranium price during the quarter, with the price up 21% ending the period at $27.38.

Berkeley noted that it has received a number of enquiries from the US, China and India for substantial term contract offtake commitments.

The company has 2.75mln pounds of U3O8 under contract for the first six years with a further 1.25mln pounds of optional volume, at an average price above US$42.

<![CDATA[News - Berkeley Energia’s Salamanca project receives support from local community ]]> https://www.proactiveinvestors.com.au/companies/news/204262/berkeley-energias-salamanca-project-receives-support-from-local-community-204262.html Berkeley Energia Ltd’s (LON:BKY) Salamanca project in Spain has received local community support through a petition signed by nearly 1,500 residents from towns surrounding the site.

The Uranium miner said that local residents had cited job creation, which would allow young residents to remain in their hometowns and reverse decades of depopulation, as a key reason for supporting the petition, adding that a majority of the on-site team had already been recruited from the local area.

Berkeley also said that Spanish daily newspaper La Gaceta had featured a large article highlighting that local support for the project is “massive and unanimous” and “supporting and developing the local communities are two of the foundations on which Berkeley’s project is based”.

To date, the company has received over 22,500 job applications with 400 of those coming from villages surrounding the project and of those, over 110 from the local village of Villavieja, representing 25% of its population.

Paul Atherley, managing director of Berkeley Energia, said: “We are thrilled that so many local residents turned out to support our project over the past few days demonstrating the huge amount of support for the Salamanca mine, which is located in a region experiencing some of the highest levels of youth unemployment in the European Union.

He added: “Development of the mine will stimulate the return of services such as schools, petrol stations and transport to the local villages and will help to bring back some of the 25,000 mainly young people who left the area last year to look for employment”.
