Stans Energy Corp.(TSXV:HRE) reported submitting the required documentation to the Kyrgyz Ministry of Natural Resources to gain licences for Kutessay II and Kalesay.
As quoted in the press release:
By the end of December, Stans submitted a complete report on the work done on all aspects of Kutessay II to the Kyrgyz Government. Along with this submission a request to extend the LA for a period of one year was tabled as well. The work done to date will allow Stans to proceed with the plans for Phase I development to restart mining operations at the historical Soviet levels of production.
Stans Energy, COO, Boris Aryev, stated:
Mining licenses in Kyrgyzstan are comprised of two parts: License Certificate for the term of the license, which in Stans’ case is for the period 2009 through to 2029; and a Licensing Agreement which typically are negotiated for periods of 2 to 5 years with the Kyrgyz Ministry of Natural Resources. This Licensing Agreement spells out what scope of work will be undertaken to move the project towards production.
