BELGRADE - The Serbian government on Friday adopted a decree determining the spatial plan for a special-purpose area for implementation of a jadarite exploitation and processing project named Jadar, according to the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia.

The document is the foundation for planned development of a mine, an industrial facility and the necessary infrastructure, as well as for protection, use and regulation of the Jadar special-purpose area.

The spatial plan was developed in line with studies and documentation obtained from Rio Sava Exploration Ltd Belgrade, the current holder of a permit for geological explorations related to boron and lithium at the Jadar deposit site.

Rio Sava, a part of the global mining corporation Rio Tinto, has found deposits of the mineral jadarite in the Jadar River basin in western Serbia.

The spatial plan covers 293.9 sq km in the territory of the cities of Loznica and Krupanj.
