Tertiary Minerals has received approval of the Environmental Project Brief from the Zambian Environmental Management Agency for its Mushima North Copper Projects where the Company is earning up to a 90% interest.

Commenting on the project, Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said: “I am delighted to report that we have received EPB approval for the Mushima North Copper Project where we are currently working through the shared FQM data in preparation for the coming field exploration season. On a recent visit to Zambia in December our Exploration Manager recovered sulphide mineralised drill core from a drill hole completed in the 1960’s at Mushima North which reportedly tested an extensive copper-in-soil anomaly and intersected wide zones of low-grade copper mineralisation. We will be assaying this core shortly to validate this early target. I look forward to reporting back to shareholders as soon as we have the results.”

Located 100km east of Manyinga, the Mushima North project is located within the exploration licence 27068-HQ-LEL that covers an area of 701.3km².
