The Romanian Government has recently unveiled a strategic plan to align its mining legislation with the European Union’s Critical Raw Materials Act (CRMA). This move aims to enhance the country’s mining sector and ensure compliance with EU standards.

Here are the key points from the announcement:

  1. Copper as a Strategic Material: The Romanian Ministry of Economy formally listed copper as a strategic and critical material. This recognition underscores the importance of copper in various industries and highlights Romania’s commitment to supporting its extraction and utilization.
  2. Overhaul of Mining Legislation: The government plans to overhaul existing mining legislation. This includes simplifying and streamlining the inspection and permitting process for constructing mines within Romania. By creating a more efficient regulatory framework, Romania aims to attract foreign investment and encourage public-private partnerships in the mining sector.
  3. Access to Critical Minerals: The announcement emphasizes opening new sites and reevaluating existing ones to acquire critical minerals. These minerals play a crucial role in Europe’s green energy transition and are essential for sustainable development.
  4. Unified Regulatory Body: Romania intends to establish a single regulatory mining monitoring and control body. This body will fast-track inspection and permitting processes, improving overall efficiency.

Commenting on this positive development, Mr. Grant Sboros, Chief Executive Officer of Euro Sun, said “This announcement clearly signifies Romania’s intention to comply fully with the EU’s CRMA and to formally list copper as a strategic and critical material. We are also greatly encouraged by the details contained in this announcement which include plans to provide the regulatory framework necessary to attract foreign investment to encourage public-private partnerships specific to mining. This provides investor predictivity and fiscal stability. Of significant value for Euro Sun is also the plan to create a single regulatory mining monitoring and control body to fast-track inspection and permitting processes and improve efficiencies.” As the second biggest copper resource measured and indicated in Europe, Euro Sun continues to work closely with the Romanian Government to understand and implement these changes made to Romania’s mining legislation.

Euro Sun Mining Inc., a Toronto Stock Exchange-listed mining company, is closely collaborating with the Romanian Government to understand and implement these changes in Romania’s mining legislation. Euro Sun’s Rovina Valley gold and copper project, which hosts the second-largest gold deposit in Europe, aligns with the circular economy and contributes to job creation and investment in Hunedoara County.

This positive development provides investor predictability and fiscal stability, fostering a conducive environment for mining activities in Romania.
