Barruecopardo Permitting Update


The Board of Ormonde is very pleased to provide an update on progress in connection with permitting of its flagship Barruecopardo Tungsten Project in Salamanca, Spain ("Barruecopardo" or "the Project").  


Saloro SLU ("Saloro"), the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary which is developing Barruecopardo, has now received formal written notification from the Regional Environmental Department in Castilla y Leon of a positive outcome in the "Report on the Nature Network" ("IRNA") which is necessary to allow for the granting of the Environmental Impact Declaration ("EID") for the Project.  This EID is the most important document in the environmental permitting of the Project without which the Mining (Exploitation) Concession cannot be granted by the Director General for Energy and Mines.


The IRNA approval notification states that the Barruecopardo project, as proposed and presented by Saloro in its submissions, will not adversely affect the integrity of the areas of wildlife and flora/fauna habitat in proximity to the proposed mining operation in so far as Saloro complies, inter alia, with the conditions presented in its Environmental Impact Study and Restoration Plan.



Kerr Anderson, Ormonde's Managing Director, commented:


"In our proposals for the re-development of mining operations at Barruecopardo, we have from the outset been very conscious of mitigating as far as possible any impacts the project may have on the local wildlife and plant habitat.


"We are extremely pleased to receive formal notification from the regional authorities of the positive findings in the Report on the Nature Network.  This is a significant step forward for the project and one which now paves the way for the granting of the all-important Environmental Impact Declaration."





Kerr Anderson PhD EurGeolPGeo, Managing Director of Ormonde, and a qualified person as defined in the Note for Mining, Oil and Gas Companies, June 2009, of the London Stock Exchange, has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this announcement.
