Spanish departments clear Emed's Seville project

Emed Mining has moved a step closer to developing its Rio Tinto project near Seville.

The Aim-listed copper and gold group has, in effect, received the go ahead from Spain's culture and heritage department and is now awaiting approval from three other departments. Emed is hopeful that this will be resolved shortly so that production can start next year. As well as the Rio Tinto mine, Emed owns a Slovakian gold project which is less advanced.
