to the reopening of the Rio Tinto mine in the province of Huelva
stating that there are no inconsistencies in any environmental aspects
of the Project.
The compatibility report is an internal report between the departments

Jobs, by which Environment has provided the competent body - the
Department of Industry, Energy and Mines, with confirmation that there
are no inconsistencies.
This was announced on Thursday 16 January 2014 by the Director General
of Industry, Energy and Mines of the Junta de Andalucia, Maria Jose
Asensio, in a press conference in Seville along with the Minister of
Economy, Innovation, Science and Jobs, Jose Sanchez Maldonado.

The fact that this statement has been made with the agreement of both
departments is an extremely significant step as they are both
publically acknowledging that the Project is workable from an
