WHITEHORSE, Feb. 24, 2011 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX News Network) --
European Goldfields Limited (AIM: EGU / TSX: EGU) (the "Company") notes today's report on Thomson Reuters referring to the permitting process in Greece.
European Goldfields confirms that it has not been officially notified by the Greek authorities that there is any issue regarding the permitting process or the timing of such.
The Company notes the clarification from the Greek Ministry for Environment, Energy and Climate Change ("MOE") that has since been issued.
The Minister, Ms Birbili has been further quoted in a news briefing later this afternoon as stating that "the Environmental Study is under evaluation and the Ministry will issue the terms [of the permit] once that is complete".
The Company confirms that it has not been asked to provide any additional information by the MOE regarding groundwater or groundwater pollution. The Company has previously received confirmation from a Special Technical Committee of the MOE that the final Environmental Impact Statement ("EIS") conformed with all technical requirements under Greek and EU environmental legislation.
In addition, the Company wishes to highlight that after full public consultation, on 10 December 2010 the local prefectural council unanimously supported the EIS and passed the same to the MOE for final approval.
European Goldfields has full confidence in the integrity of the permitting process in Greece and will keep the market informed as necessary.
