Belo Sun Mining Corp. (Belo Sun) reports that a three judge panel decision by the Court of Appeals of the Federal Justice in Brasília (Tribunal Regional Federal da 1ª Região for the Tutela Antecipada Antecedente) has ruled unanimously that SEMAS (State Environmental Agency for the Government of Para) remains the competent authority for the environmental permitting of the Volta Grande gold project (see press release dated 11 September 2018).  

The ruling confirms that the Construction License (LI) granted in 2017 by SEMAS and the Environmental License (LP) granted in 2014 by SEMAS for the Volta Grande gold project remain valid, subject to the completion of the Indigenous Study prepared following the protocols prescribed by FUNAI (Fundação Nacional do Índio), including primary data collection and consultations with the local Indigenous communities (see press releases dated 6 December 2017 and 23 July 2018).
