Kaizen Discovery Inc. (TSXV: KZD) today announced that the Pinaya Copper-Gold Project in Peru has now reached the third stage of the “Consulta Previa” or “prior consultation” review. This stage of the seven-stage review process will see the Ministry of Energy and Mines meet directly with the local community of Pinaya. Kaizen has been informed by the Ministry that this engagement meeting is scheduled for January 26 to January 28, 2018.
Under Peruvian law, the government-led prior consultation process verifies that the considerations of any local peoples that could represent an indigenous population have been recognized. This process is designed to ensure that, as the project advances, future community stakeholder relations are managed in a transparent and comprehensive manner.
The Consulta Previa is the final stage of government review prior to the Ministry of Energy and Mines issuing Kaizen with the Authorization to Commence Activities for its planned drilling program at the Pinaya Project.
