ERM to Assess UK Lithium Mine's Environmental Impact
Cornish Lithium, a mineral exploration and development company, has partnered with ERM, a global sustainability consultancy, to conduct an environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) of a potential lithium mine in Cornwall.
The mine, which would be located at Trelavour Downs, could help develop a domestic supply of lithium, which is a key component in batteries for electric vehicles and other renewable energy technologies.
The ESIA will assess the potential environmental and social impacts of the mine, including the impact on air quality, water quality, biodiversity, and local communities. It will also consider the mine's potential to contribute to the UK's net zero emissions targets.
ERM is a leading provider of ESIA services with a proven track record of successfully delivering projects in complex and sensitive environments. The company has a strong understanding of the environmental and social impacts of mining and is committed to working with Cornish Lithium to ensure that the Trelavour mine is developed sustainably.
The ESIA is a critical step in the development of the Trelavour mine. It will provide the information that is needed to make informed decisions about the mine's design, construction, and operation. The results of the ESIA will also be used to engage with local communities and stakeholders and secure the necessary planning consent.
The Trelavour mine has the potential to make a significant contribution to the UK's net zero emissions targets. By developing a domestic supply of lithium, the mine could help reduce the UK's reliance on imports from countries with poor environmental and human rights records. The mine could also create jobs and boost the economy in Cornwall.
The ESIA is an important part of ensuring that the Trelavour mine is developed sustainably. By working with ERM, Cornish Lithium is committed to minimising the environmental and social impacts of the mine and maximising its benefits for the UK.
