Norge Mining Ltd ("Norge Mining" or the "Company"), the Anglo-Norwegian mineral exploration company with a world-class resource of Critical Raw Materials in southwest Norway, is pleased to announce the publication of its Responsible Business Report for 2021.
Norge Mining is focused on three EU Critical Raw Materials phosphate, vanadium and titanium. These materials are of major strategic importance to Europe, for example in the green energy transition and in food production. The requirement to produce them in Europe is urgent, to ensure security of supply and to meet ESG agendas in which companies are focusing on the provenance of materials to ensure they are ethically and sustainably sourced.
To deliver its plans to move from exploration and into development and production, Norge Mining is committed to the highest standards of responsible stewardship. Alignment with international sustainability programmes and disclosure guidance are central to the Company's strategy for becoming a robust and responsible mining and processing business.

The report provides an opportunity for all stakeholders to assess the Company's activities and performance, and all feedback is welcomed.
John Vergopoulos, Chief Executive Officer of Norge Mining, said:
"This is our second Responsible Business Report and it outlines the significant progress achieved during 2021 across the Company but particularly from the perspective of sustainability. As a natural resources company we are still at the exploration stage, but the world-class deposits that we have discovered in southwest Norway mean we are determined to have processes and policies in place to meet the highest standards of sustainable practice in readiness for the mining phase.
"The requirement to produce Critical Raw Materials in Europe has never been more urgent, highlighted by Europe's dependence on Russian energy and phosphate. Norge Mining's plans are focused on the development of a sustainable mining industry in Norway, embracing the environment, job creation and positive local and European impact."
