Following the submission of an archaeological impact assessment last November the application was approved with standard conditions by the Botswana National Museum.

The approval allows the project to proceed subject to normal reporting of chance cultural or archaeological finds, monitoring of all earthmoving activities for such finds and the mitigation of any sites within the mining and industrial areas prior to the commencement of mining.

There are no known cultural or archaeological factors that could delay the project.

African Energy discovered the Sese thermal coal deposit in June 2010 and has since completed a series of infill core drilling programs that have defined more than 650 million tonnes of measured resources.
