Giyani Metals Submits An Environmental Management Plan For Its Otse Manganese Prospect In Botswana

OAKVILLE, Ontario, Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Giyani Metals Corp. (TSXV:WDG, GR: A2DUU8) (“Giyani” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the environmental management plan (EMP) for its Otse manganese prospect in Botswana. This is the second EMP that the Company has completed in the past two weeks. The EMP was submitted to the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) on January 14, 2019.

Robin Birchall, CEO of Giyani commented:

The completion of our second EMP in Botswana is another important step for Giyani towards mitigating the physical and environmental risks around the old mining pits at Otse. Once the EMP is reviewed and approved by the DEA, the Company intends to commence the rehabilitation work as soon as practicable, which will include cutting benches in the two old pits as well as cleaning up the various surface stockpile material that was left by the old mining operation.

EMP summary
The Otse EMP contains a baselining of the environmental conditions around the two old pits (see figure 1 below), identification and assessment of potential environmental impacts, and an overview of proposed risk mitigation and monitoring measures the Company plans to implement during the execution phase, including proposed bench cutting work.
