Sembehun haul road

Sierra Rutile is currently evaluating mining the Sembehun deposits to the north of Area 1. The inception of mining will require extensive preparation, including the construction of a haul road and power linkages with Area 1. An Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment (ESHIA) and Environmental, Social and Health Management Plan (ESHMP) has been developed for the haul road, bridge and power transmission line. These documents have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency of Sierra Leone and an Environmental Impact Assessment licence has been issued.
