Land Acquisition – history and current status

Property Overview / Area of EMN / Mangan Chvaletice interest

During the preparation of the project, the area of land of interest for the implementation of the project was identified. No forced land acquisition or resettlement is required for the Project. The land can be divided into two parts. The first is "industrial zone" and the second is "tailing area/protected deposit area". Both integral areas are shown in Figure 1.
