June 8, 2022
Toronto – June 08, 2022: AbraSilver Resource Corp. (TSX.V: ABRA; OTCQX: ABBRF) ("AbraSilver" or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed a comprehensive Environmental Baseline Study (the “Study”) at its Diablillos Project in Salta, Argentina. Completion of the Study is an important milestone towards the ongoing advancement of Diablillos as a sustainable mining project.
The Study was completed on behalf of the Company by EC & Asociados, a certified environmental consultancy company based in Salta. EC & Asociados have extensive experience consulting for the mining industry in Argentina with clients including: Livent, Posco Argentina, and Rincon Ltd. among others.
The purpose of the Study is to gather and analyze relevant environmental baseline parameters for the area of a potential future mine before any major project activities are undertaken. This will help to identify and mitigate potential environmental and social impacts that may arise with the future development of the project. The study covered a number of important areas such as hydrology, flora, fauna and limnology. All information gathered in the Study will be used to develop an Environmental Impact Assessment (“EIA”), which is currently in progress and is an essential part of the final approval process required for the ultimate construction of the project.
AbraSilver President and CEO, John Miniotis, commented “We are very pleased with the work done by our team in completing the comprehensive Environmental Baseline Study at Diablillos. We look forward to ongoing collaboration with all stakeholders as we advance the Diablillos project towards a future construction decision.”
