Rocterra Limitada, a local Chilean mining Company has been undertaking infrastructure and construction activities in preparation of the forthcoming commercialisation of the mine. Formal lodgements have been made for the surface rights permits for the mine, with the rights granted by Hot Chili Limited. There is currently an outstanding permit for the land held by Campañía Minera del Pacífico (CMP). The Company has filed for a Court Ruling over the surface rights after considerable time invested in seeking to obtain an amicable agreement with CMP. The Company is confident that there will be a favourable ruling in short order.
The Company received the provincial permit for the surface rights after failing to get the response from CMP. This provides ADY with the ability to move forward with production. Production has been further delayed due to the global Covid-19 shut down.
