Strategic Minerals Plc (SML.L) Announced that the company's wholly owned subsidiary, Leigh Creek Copper Mine Pty Ltd (LCCM or Leigh Creek) has today lodged a draft program for environment protection and rehabilitation (PEPR) with the South Australian government. The lodgement of the draft PEPR is an important step to full re- opening of operations and producing copper at Leigh Creek. The general regulatory process for a licence to operate is for companies to lodge a draft proposal which is circulated to relevant departments within the South Australian state government. This process normally takes around two months and feedback is then addressed/incorporated into a final PEPR lodgement. Generally, the process takes around three to four months from lodgement of the draft PEPR to the granting of the approval. #SML
