AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. said Tuesday that the environmental regulator of Colombia has decided to archive the environmental permit application for its Quebradona copper-gold project.
The South African mining company said it hasn't yet received the formal notification, and that it will study it once received.
AngloGold explained that, generally, a decision to archive is made where the regulator requires additional information.
"Quebradona remains one of the world's most exciting new copper-gold projects and we are encouraged by the strength and continued growth in support for its development," the company said.
