('Adriatic Metals' or the 'Company')


Environmental permit issued by Federal Ministry of Environment & Tourism

Adriatic Metals PLC (ASX:ADT, LON:ADT1) ("Adriatic" or the "Company") is pleased to advise that the Federal Ministry of Environment and Tourism ("Ministry") has issued The Veovaca Environmental Permit, one of the key approvals required for the issue of the Exploitation Permit.

On 23 April 2020, the Company announced the receipt of a positive Record of Decision and advised that the Environmental Permit would be issued within 30 days. The permit covers the Veovaca Mine, Plant and Tailings Facility, and its receipt allows Adriatic to apply for an Urban Planning Permit from the Federal Ministry of Spatial Planning. This application has now been lodged with all the associated approvals from nine different utility and community service companies.

Upon receiving the Urban Planning Permit, the application for Exploitation will be made to the Federal Ministry for Energy, Mining & Industry. As part of the approval procedure, the Ministry will hold a public hearing in Vares, where members of the public can comment on the application, and if necessary, the Company is given an opportunity to respond.

Adriatic's CEO and Managing Director commented "We are grateful to the Ministry for expediting the issue of the Environmental Permit and are pleased that yet another step in the procedure for exploitation permission has been completed".

Adriatic Metals PLC (ASX:ADT, LON:ADT1) ("Adriatic" or the "Company") is a dual listed (ASX and LSE) precious and base metals explorer and developer via its 100% interest in the world class Vares Project (the "Project") in Bosnia & Herzegovina. The Project comprises a historic open cut mine at Veovaca and brownfield exploration at Rupice, an advanced proximal deposit which exhibits exceptionally high grades of base and precious metals.

The Company announced the results of a Scoping Study on 19 November 2019 which indicated an NPV8 of US$917 million and IRR of 107%, following the release of a Maiden Resource Estimate earlier the year on 23 July 2019. There have been no material adverse changes in the assumptions underpinning the forecast financial information or material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the Maiden Resource Estimate since the original relevant market announcements which continue to apply.

 Adriatic has attracted a world class team to both expedite its exploration efforts to expand the current JORC resource at the high-grade Rupice deposit and to rapidly advance the Project into the development phase utilising its first mover advantage and strategic position in Bosnia.
