Mining Weekly reported that an injunction has been placed on the environmental impact assessment (EIA) for Alamos Gold Inc.’s (TSX:AGI,NYSE:AGI) Agi Dagi gold project, located in Turkey.

As quoted in the market news:

The development would impede project momentum until Alamos had assessed the ‘cumulative impacts’ of the project in conjunction with other potential mining projects in the region.

Alamos spokesperson Scott Parsons confirmed that an injunction had been placed on the approval of the project’s EIA, relating to the lack of a cumulative impact assessment (CIA).

Toronto-based Alamos in August last year received the final environmentalapproval for the project from the Turkish Environment and Urbanisation Ministry responsible for reviewing the EIA, but similar to its Kirazli project, the Canakkale Administrative Court issued an injunction order to the Ministry regarding its approval of the Agi Dagi EIA.

Alamos had already started a cumulative impact assessment for Agi Dagi, which was nearly complete.
