European Uranium Resources Ltd. (TSXV:EUU) announced its has filed for a new exploration license over the Kuriskova deposit area in Slovakia, as its current 10-year license will expire April 19.

As quoted in the press release:

The Slovak Ministry of the Environment (the “Ministry”), which administers exploration licenses, issued a statement on April 16 that it will deny the Company’s application for a further extension. The Company expects to receive official notification of this decision in due course. The reasons given for the denial were that the Ministry was reluctant to grant a further extension to the 10 years previously granted, notwithstanding that the Geology Act would allow for a further extension in order to complete work and that legal advice to the Joint Venture was that there was no legal reason for the extension not to be granted.

In addition, the Ministry concluded that the Company’s intention to explore for rare earth elements in the license area qualifies as a new exploration project, not as work necessary for completing the exploration which has been ongoing. Together with joint venture partner Forte Energy NL, EUU has been seeking to enhance the value of the Kuriskova project by evaluating the possibility of adding to the byproduct credits of the Kuriskova uranium resource, including the potential of rare earth element credits. Rare earth elements (REE) are classed as critical and strategic minerals by the European Union. The presence of rare earth minerals in the Kuriskova mineralization has been documented by earlier exploration, but quantities and grade of potential REE mineralization have not been estimated. To do so would require re-assay of select drill core and possibly additional drilling.
