The copper mine Bucim DOO Radovish was awarded an “A” integrated environmental permit from the Ministry of the Environment and Physical Planning after having met these requirements with its operational plan.
Receipt of this integrated environmental permit confirms that the Bucim mine is in full compliance with all local and global best practices. The mine is dedicated to complying with and following the state’s requirements for environmental standards, and is prepared to take all necessary measures to minimize the impact of its operations on the environment.
The award of the “A” integrated environmental permit is a result of implementation of the mine’s operational plan and application of the highest standards for environmental protection which the mine will continue to apply in the future. This environmental permit covers and lists all working conditions of the mine in order to maintain the highest level of control over any possible negative impact of the company’s operations on the environment. The operating conditions of the mine are determined and assessed by Macedonian legislation, from the best available work processes, the monitoring process, control of the production process, waste management, to the closure and conservation of the installation.
“The ‘A’ integrated environmental permit is a confirmation of our efforts and investments in the field of environmental protection, compliance with best practices, and also a guarantee that we will continue to apply the highest standards for environmental protection,” said Nikoljacho Nikolov, Deputy General Director of Bucim.
