MOZAMBIQUE – ESIA OF A COAL-MINING PROJECT AT TETE

The COBA Group, in association with AURECON and DIAGONAL, initiated the first phase of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment of International Coal Ventures Private Limited – ICVL’s coal-mining project in the Zambeze, which includes mining area, as well as the resettlement issues.

Within this study, COBA will be responsible for assessing the baseline conditions of the following areas: soil and soil capability; surface water hydrology; geology and hydrogeology; macroeconomics, land use planning and landscaping. These studies will enable a thorough assessment of the main impacts on the physical and territorial structure associated to the project.

This project, developed in compliance with the applicable regulations and according to the best international working practices will propose, as a result, the mitigation measures for the several areas under study.

Studies began in early November 2015 and will have a total duration of 6 months.
