HOUSTON (ICIS)–Spanish fertilizer firm Highfield Resources announced it has received authorisation from the Government of Navarra to build on non-urbanised land the process plant for its Muga Potash project.

Highfield said the process plant will be built within the municipality area of Sanguesa and that this approval follows the granting of the construction licence for the mine-gate and declines as well as the electricity line from the main network to the Muga mine.

Although Sanguesa still needs to finalise the granting of the process plant construction licence, the company said getting clearance from the government was a pivotal milestone.

“The authorisation for the process plant from the Government of Navarra was the necessary step to confirm the adequacy of the Muga project to all aspects of urbanistic planning legislation related to its location in Sanguesa,” said Ignacio Salazar, Highfield Resources CEO.

“We remain deeply engaged with the administrations to expedite the final step in the construction licence in parallel to, and as we finalise, the construction works around the mine-gate.”

Last month, the company announced it had received credit approvals for project financing.
