Osino - Development of the proposed Surface Water and Sand Storage Dam (SWSSD) on the Khan River, Erongo Region

30 January 2024 | Client: Osino Gold Exploration and Mining (Pty) Ltd (Osino)

Osino Gold Exploration and Mining (Pty) Ltd (Osino) is currently developing the Twin Hills Gold Project, located 25 km northeast of Karibib within the Erongo Region. Despite the success of the water supply investigations, undertaken to date, in the Karibib Marble Aquifer, Osino is still investigating other sources, including the Khan River Water Supply option, to ensure water security owning to the fact that the Twin Hilld Gold project is in a water scarce Central Areas Network of Namibia (CAN).

SLR Environmental Consulting (Namibia) (Pty) Ltd (“SLR”) are appointed as the independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAP) to undertake the Scoping and EIA process required to inform an ECC decision for the proposed project.
