DNI Metals Update - Preparing for the Future 2018-11-08 15:13:17
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / November 8, 2018 / DNI Metals Inc. (CSE: DNI; OTC PINK: DMNKF) ("DNI" or the "Company"),

Environmental Licenses

DNI has put together all the information needed to properly file the documents for the Vohitsara and Marofody properties. The documents must be signed off by the Director General, "DG", of the Mines Ministry. These documents are with the DG now.


These documents were filed with the Office National pour l'Environnement Madagascar, ONE, in December of 2017, but the proper capex calculation was not completed, and the proper fees were not paid.

As per our environmental impact study and the Cahier de Charges Minieres, DNI will file for the production of 15,000 tonnes of graphite per year. The pilot plant will be capable of 5-6,000 tonnes of graphite per year. When DNI builds its commercial plant, it will not have to re-apply or file additional information. DNI is preparing for the future.


These documents have been prepared and will be filed at the ONE, along with the revised Vohitsara documents. As we noted in our press release last week, through an ongoing investigation, the Office National pour l'Environnement Madagascar, has determined and informed DNI that the many of the receipts and documents were falsified, and that the fee payments had not been paid. In fact the cahierd'charge and the environmental impact study for Marofody had not been filed with the ONE.

The procedures from the Malagasy Office National Pour L'Environnement, "ONE", National Environmental Office state the following:

Un permisenvironnemental est délivre par l'ONE à la suite d'une évaluation favorable de l'EIE (pour un délai légal de 60 jours)

Translation: An environmental license will be issued by the ONE following a favorable evaluation of the EIA, legally the ONE must complete this within 60 days.

The ONE will need to visit the properties twice. DNI is hoping to complete this within the 60 days.



Le dossier est dépose, contre accuse de réception, auprès de l'ONE.

Le promoteur contribue aux frais d'évaluation de l'EIE (art. 14 nouveau) selon le niveau de son imiestissement, aux barèmes suivants :

0,5%du montant de l'investissement matériel lorsque celui-ci est inferieur a 2 milliards de ARIARY

2 millions de ARIARY majores de 0,4% du montant de l'investissement matériel lorsque celui-ci est compris entre 2 milliards et 5 milliards de ARIARY

82 millions de ARIARY majores de 0,1% du montant de l'investissement matériel lorsque celui-ci est supérieur a 50 milliards de ARIARY

Les frais d'évaluation sont versés par l'investisseur a un compte spécial ouvert à cet effet par l'ONE et acquittes avant toute évaluation environnementale de l'investissement.
