Euro Manganese Inc. has announced it has received approval of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) for the Chvaletice Manganese Project from the Czech Ministry of Environment.

In addition, the company has appointed Mr. Tim Kindred, an experienced, large-scale project delivery professional, as Project Director for the Chvaletice Project.


  • Czech Ministry of Environment approves the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for the Chvaletice Manganese Project.
  • Excellent stakeholder engagement processes resulted in no comments or opposition from local stakeholders during commentary period.
  • The ESIA is the key gating permit from which subsequent permits can follow in a more procedural manner.
  • Appointment of a highly experienced Project Director for the Chvaletice Manganese Project to lead the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) and the Engineering and Procurement and Construction Management (EPCM) phase of the Project.

Dr. Matthew James, President and CEO of Euro Manganese, commented:

“Approval of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for the Chvaletice Project is a major permitting and project milestone. It is a testament to the diligent approach and many years of effort by both our Czech team, who have engaged with multiple stakeholder groups along the way, and our engineering team, who have integrated feedback into our plans. What remains constant is our desire to minimise project impacts and maximise social benefits throughout the lifespan of our operations. We look forward to advancing the now more procedural follow-on permits to develop a world-class facility capable of producing high-purity manganese, an essential component in lithium-ion batteries for EV vehicles.

Additionally, we welcome Tim Kindred to the Euro Manganese team. His skills and capabilities in developing complex battery metal projects, together with his proven-track record in delivering large-scale projects on time and on budget will be extremely valuable for us as we progress both FEED and EPCM work, including the construction of the Chvaletice Project.”
