THE GENERAL URBANISM PLAN (PUZ) OF THE ROSIA MONTANA COMMUNE AND THE ZONAL URBANISM PLAN (PUZ) FOR THE INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AREA OF ROSIA MONTANA ARE VALID AND PERFECTLY APPLICABLE. JUSTICE REJECTS SUSPENSION REQUEST FOR THE ZONAL URBANISM PLAN FOR ROŞIA MONTANA

Bucharest, 27 May 2011 – The Cluj Tribunal dismissed the request submitted by the Independent Centre for Environmental Resources Development and Alburnus Maior Rosia Montana Association, to suspend the ruling of the Local Council no. 1/2009 (HCL 1/2009) regarding the general urbanism plan (PUG) of the commune and the zonal urbanism plan (PUZ) for the industrial development area of Rosia Montana.

At the same time, we mention that RMGC and the Local Council Rosia Montana have filed a second appeal against the decision given by Alba Tribunal on 24 May 2011 to cancel HCL 1/ 2009 regarding PUZ and PUG. According to the law, the decision of Alba Tribunal is suspended starting with the date when it is appealed and until an irrevocable decision is rendered.

As a result, at this moment the PUZ and PUG documentation is perfectly valid and applicable.

This result continues the series of legal successes, bringing to nine the number of major cases won in the last 15 months. Recently, the Bucharest Tribunal has rejected a suspension claim for the urbanism certificate for the Rosia Montana Project, claim submitted by Greenpeace and the Centre for Legal Resources. “Following these legal victories and the review of the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIA Report) of the Rosia Montana Mining Project (RMP), we express our confidence that we will prove beyond any doubt that the RMP is viable and solid, and it has been designed to the highest international standards as a model mining operation. From both a technical perspective as well as from the community development point of view, the RMP will be a model mine which future mining projects will follow,” Dragos Tanase, RMGC Managing Director said.

The mining project in Rosia Montana brings 4 billion USD to the Romanian economy as direct impact, while the total potential impact including its multiplier effect can reach as much as 19 billion USD, according to the 2010 estimations of reputed British experts from Oxford Policy Management. The project is expected to generate thousands of jobs while observing all Romanian and European Union environmental laws and also helping preserve and valorize the cultural patrimony.
