Ecologia Awarded Ecuador Work for SolGold

Ecologia Environmental Consultants Pty Ltd (Ecologia), a subsidiary of Resource Development Group Limited (RDG), have been appointed by Brisbane based SolGold PLC (AIM : SolGold) to act as environmental assessors, assisting with the implementation of the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for the SolGold’s Cascabel project.

The Cascabel project, located approximately 120 km north of Ecuador’s capital city of Quito, is currently in the advanced exploration phase having been granted license approval in August 2013 subject to implementation of commitments within the EMP. Ecologia will fulfil the requirements of the EMP to ensure SolGold remain compliant for the duration of the advanced exploration phase, which is estimated to last approximately four years.

In Ecuador, all phases of mining activities require approval by the Minister of Environment prior to commencement and projects are closely monitored by the Minister of Environment to ensure they are compliant with the country’s Environmental Impact Assessment processes.

“Having trained the Minister of Environment in the Environmental Impact Assessment system and control mechanisms for mining projects last year, we have first-hand knowledge of the country’s requirements and can ensure SolGold remain compliant throughout the whole process” said Dr. Lazaro Roque-Albelo, Ecologia’s General Manager.

“Ecologia has a multi-disciplinary and multi-lingual team (including Spanish, English, Portuguese, French and German) able to address and provide strategic advice and management for all stages of a project in different countries. In today’s global business environment where customer diversity and global operations are increasingly common it is vital to offer a high level of multi-skilled support to remain competitive. Our team has managed numerous mining and contract projects throughout Western Australia, Ecuador, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines” he added.

Over the term of the contract Ecologia’s assistance will include a gap analysis of the EMP, liaison, sub-consultant engagement support, biannual monitoring report reviews, environmental compliance audit reports, translation of documents, environmental program and budget reviews.
