MMSK appeals to Russian agencies to postpone Voronezh nickel deposit development
MMSK appealed to Rosnedra--Russia's federal mineral resource and environmental agency--seeking a delay in the start date because local protests against nickel deposit development in the area jeopardized the company's ability to meet licensing requirements, Ural Business Consulting reports.
Rosnedra agreed to the change in the terms of the license, though the government is still required to approve the appeal, which would postpone the entire development project by one year.
UMMC clashed with environmental groups earlier this year in events that turned violent, leading Cossacks and UMMC representatives to cooperate in setting up a joint group of experts to carry out environmental surveillance procedures, according to Ural Business Consulting.
