BUCHAREST, Romania, June 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Euro Sun Mining Inc., (TSX: ESM) (“Euro Sun” or the “Company”) through its wholly owned Romanian subsidiary, SAMAX Romania S.R.L., wishes to confirm that the Company has formally begun proceedings to list its Rovina Valley Project (the “Project”) with the European Commission as a “strategic project” for the European supply of critical minerals.

Following a meeting held on May 27, 2024 with the Romanian Ministry of Economy, the application for the Project to be designated as a “strategic project” within the European Commission’s Critical Raw Materials Act was sanctioned. This positive development will take place whilst Romania continues towards overhauling its existing mining legislation to align with the Critical Raw Materials Act.

Commenting on the Company’s application, Mr. Grant Sboros, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said “We are delighted that we now have the green light from the Romanian Government to proceed to list the Project as a strategic project directly with the European Commission. Holding the second biggest copper resource in Europe, and using the least disruptive modern mining methods, we remain confident that the Project meets all the criteria to now fast-track critical mineral supply for Europe.”
