Frontier Mining Ltd -Commencement of Environmental Social Impact Assessment

KazCopper LLP, a subsidiary of Frontier, today announces the formation of a project group to perform the Environmental Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) on its Benkala project. The group is led by Wardell Armstrong International and was formed in late December 2010. It is expected to complete its report in February.
 
This is a key step to ensure that the Benkala project operates in compliance with Equator Principles, a voluntary set of guidelines for determining, assessing and managing social and environmental risk in project financing, which has become a globally-recognised benchmark adopted by most international banks.
 
Erlan Sagadiev, CEO of Frontier, commented: "It is our drive to ensure that Frontier's operations perform to international best practice in every respect. Compliance with best practice in the area of Environmental and Social Management is one of our key priorities.
