- Atalaya Mining said it was evaluating the possibility of an appeal against a court decision over permits for the Riotinto mine in Spain.

The environmental group Ecologistas en Accion had filed a claim in relation to mining permits, which had authorised the reinstatement of operations at the Riotinto Mine.

'Atalaya continues to work with its legal advisors to evaluate the possibility of appealing the ruling and to ensure the Junta de Andalucia addresses all procedural points raised in both rulings,' the company said.

'The company continues to operate normally at Proyecto Riotinto and the JdA has publically supported the continuation of the mine.'

'An update will be provided to the market in due course.'
