Discovery of Amazonite block materialSept 08:
NMG is pleased to announce the discovery of Amazonite block material.
Acquisition of the new find might prove to be a challenge, as the area
falls on the edge of an environmentally protected area. NMG team is
working with the local NGO in the region to attempt to re-evaluate the
protected region, as this area falls on the edge, and likely was
over-extended buffer area. Norcross is a committed partner in
protecting the delicate Malagasy environment, but it in the process of
protecting sensitive areas, huge buffer zones were created to insure
threatened areas would actually be protected - immediately. It was
intended that these buffer areas would be sized-down wherever needed,
after verification, that they are not indeed part of the sensitive
region. Further details of the area will be released only after the
area is successfully acquired.
