Hristov Consulting client, the British company Mineco, which manages several lead and zinc mines in the Western Balkans, has begun to work together with its partners on a big European project Impact that aims to launch a ‘mining revolution’ by finding the best methods for exploiting small metal deposits.

Under this project, 10 partner organisations from Great Britain, France, Germany and Finland will focus on finding innovative ways of exploiting mineral resources on smaller sites, where exploitation with existing solutions is unprofitable

The Impact project has received a €7 million grant from the EU research and innovation programme Horizon 2020 to develop targeted, technological innovation in the design of mining equipment, and in planning in the field of mining. Team members say that innovation will not only reduce the need for feasibility studies, but will also improve the quality of the extracted material, infrastructure, land use, resource consumption and waste generation.
