In line with the announcement in January, Sydvaranger is currently focused on completion of engineering work which both advances and secures the project for a restart. With this focus combined with resetting our start-up plans for 2021, we acknowledge that in the short term, we have some excess capacity in our skilled labor.
Cato Johansen and Kim-Goran Pettersen have decided to become Construction and Mining engineers, which Sydvaranger fully supports as it is of outmost importance for the Company to contribute to increase local skills and expertise.
