The proposed project involves the exploration activities for base and rare metals, industrial minerals and precious metals on Exclusive Prospecting Licences (EPLs) 5445 and 5670 in the Erongo and Kunene regions, operated by Uis – Afritin Mining Namibia (Pty) Ltd.

The proposed exploration activities are generally low-impact and non-intrusive. The exploration activities may be ‘scaled up’ depending on exploration findings. The following are envisaged during the proposed project:

  • Airborne geophysical surveys (non-invasive);
  • Potential creation of access tracks, where existing tracks cannot be utilised;
  • Limited vegetation clearing for the creation of tracks, and survey access; and
  • Ground exploration activities may include mineral sampling, geological mapping, geophysical surveys, temporary trenching, drilling and drill-core sampling.


ECC’s Role in the project

Environmental Compliance Consultancy (ECC) has been engaged by the proponent Uis – Afritin Mining Namibia (Pty) Ltd to undertake the ESIA and  Environmental Management Plan (EMP) in terms of the Environmental Management Act, 2007 and its regulations.
