It was concluded on the meeting that significant progress was made in the implementation of Timok project on the “Cukaru Peki’ deposit, which is according to previous researches, one of the richest copper and gold mining sites in the world, according to the Ministry of Mining and Energy.

“We expect that the Study for certification of reserves in the upper part of the site will be submitted in 2017 and that construction works for the pit construction will begin this year which, in the first phase, will be in the function of further exploration activities, and afterwards for the purpose of exploitation”, said Antic.
