Following a tender procedure launched in September 2018, the Eramet group obtained exploration permits on the rutiliferous block of Akonolinga. Lasting three years, they will allow the mining group’s teams to carry out the field work and the feasibility studies necessary to obtain a mining exploitation agreement.
