Romanian Gold Project Closer to Ministry Decision, Mediafax Says

Romania’s Environment Ministry is getting closer to making a final decision on the stalled Rosia Montana gold-mine project, Mediafax reported, citing Environment Minister Laszlo Borbely.

The ministry’s technical committee that assesses the project needs one or two more meetings before making a decision on whether to issue an environment permit for the gold mine, Borbely told the Bucharest-based news service today. The first meeting on the project will take place in January, according to Borbely.
