We are very pleased to be able to announce that our valuable member Erin Ventures is planning re-deploy the technical staff to continue with the field work.
Erin Ventures Inc. (TSXV:EV) reports that it is preparing to re-deploy its Serbian-based technical staff to its Piskanja boron property to complete the balance of the field work required as part of the "Elaborate of Reserves" documentation (the first step in the exploitation license process), in light of the decision by the Serbian government to cancel the nationwide lockdown which was introduced in an attempt to mitigate the coronavirus outbreak. Erin is ensuring that its staff has adequate personal protective gear and adheres to social distancing guidelines when returning to field work.
Erin does not anticipate any material delay from its original timelines regarding the completion of the field work and the requisite documentation.
Piskanja is Erin's wholly owned, high-grade boron deposit with an indicated mineral resource of 7.8 million tonnes (averaging 31 per cent B2O3), and an inferred resource of 3.4 million tonnes (averaging 28.6 per cent B2O3), calculated in accordance with the Canadian Institute of Mining Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves (CIM Standards).
During the lockdown, Erin's technical staff continued to work remotely, preparing certain documentation which is required as part of the "Elaborate of Reserves" process, in addition to documentation required for the filing of Erin's annual government progress report, due for submission on the 20th of September (required to extend the Piskanja Boron Project license).
Erin is developing the Piskanja Project in a manner which ensures its continued compliance with Serbian mine licensing and mine development regulations, as well as standards expected by potential strategic partners and investors.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Blake Fallis, General Manager

Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. "Inferred Resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource reported in this news release will ever be upgraded to a higher category or to reserves. U.S. persons are advised that while mineral resources are recognized under Canadian regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. U.S. persons are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable.
