TriStar Gold has secured approval of the Licença Prévia (LP) and the Environmental Impact Assessment for its Castelo de Sonhos gold project in Brazil from the Pará State Environmental Council (COEMA).

Holding a paleoplacer gold deposit, the Castelo de Sonhos gold project is around 20km from the town of Castelo de Sonhos.

The permit paves the way for the project’s advancement, subject to the formal issuance and gazettal by the Secretariat for the Environment and Sustainability (SEMAS).

TriStar noted that during the COEMA meeting, its presentation was met with a supportive response, leading to a unanimous vote in favour of the LP.

Formal issuance of the LP is now pending, reliant on SEMAS publishing the approval in the State of Pará’s official gazette.

While TriStar is optimistic about the LP’s formal issuance, the company acknowledges that there are no absolute guarantees.
