To move this project to the next phase, Tetra Tech, formerly CRA Colombia SAS, was retained to conduct the Environmental Impact Assessment  to support the environmental license pursuant to current regulations. Tetra Tech developed a work plan that included the implementation of four phases: an audit for the development of the environmental characterization, a supplement to the environmental characterization, development of the Environmental Impact Assessment, and providing support during the environmental licensing process and assessment of the environmental authority.

The project includes the development of the following sections for the EIA:

  • Description and characterization of the baseline
  • Environmental assessment
  • Environmental management plan
  • Environmental monitoring plan
  • Risk analysis and contingency plan
  • Environmental liabilities management plan
  • Closure plan
  • Community involvement
