Tawana Resources NL (‘Tawana’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce that a Scoping Report
and Terms of Reference report for an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), for the
Company’s Mofe Creek project (Project) has been submitted for review to the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) of Liberia.
Once the Terms of Reference report has been granted EPA approval, the Mofe Creek project’s ESIA
studies can be fully progressed. This submission represents a key step forward in the ESIA process,
and forms part of Tawana's commitment to obtaining an Environmental Permit and Mining Licence for
the Mofe Creek project.
Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr Wayne Richards said “These reports provide the
basis for a detailed analysis of the social, environmental and technical aspects of the Project and the
communities in which the Project will operate.”
Mr Richards continued, “Early consideration of project specific environmental and social impacts
along with appropriate community engagement can significantly influence the long term success of a
project. Through its comprehensive groundwork, Tawana seeks to maximise the economic, social and
environmental benefits of the Mofe Creek iron ore project for all its shareholders and Liberian
Both reports are the culmination of over a year’s surveillance and community consultative work within
the Project areas. Tawana engaged two accredited consultants, Earth Systems (international
consultancy) and Earth Environmental Consultancy (EEC, a Liberian consultancy based in Monrovia)
to prepare the Scoping Report and Terms of Reference, in line with relevant Liberian environmental
and EIA regulations.
