In Bulgaria, the government has issued three permits for building materials exploration, which have been granted to Zlatna Panega Tsiment (the Bulgarian division of Greece’s Titan Cement), Yaguar 02 and Inerni materiali – Yambol. According to reports, Zlatna Panega and Yaguar 02 were each issued 1-year permits for the Dobrevtsi and Kamaka sites, respectively, while Inertni materiali – Yambol was granted a 6-month permit for the Pitovo site.
Each company must invest a minimum of BGN205 000 in the development of the quarries and BGN17 000 on environmental conservation activities.
