Dundee Precious Metals Announces Advancement in Permitting Process for Krumovgrad Gold Project

Dundee Precious Metals Inc. (TSX:DPM)(TSX:DPM.WT)(TSX:DPM.WT.A) has announced that the permitting process for its Krumovgrad gold project in Bulgaria has taken another step forward.

Following the submission of the Company's new Environmental Impact Assessment Report ("EIA") and Natura 2000 Compatibility Assessment Report ("CAR") for the Krumovgrad gold project proposal to the Bulgarian Ministry of Environment and Waters ("MoEW"), the MoEW has delivered a "positive grade" to both the EIA and associated CAR, meaning all information required under the EIA Regulation is complete.

Based on this positive assessment of the quality of the submissions, and in compliance with the requirements under the Bulgarian environmental legislation, DPM will commence the public dissemination of the EIA documentation which will culminate with organized public hearings with the Krumovgrad Municipality and other potentially affected municipalities or villages. It is anticipated that the public hearings will be completed during the first quarter of 2011.

The new project scope for the Krumovgrad gold deposit involves a significantly reduced operating footprint with one major landowner, one single integrated tailings and mine waste facility, a simplified processing route that does not require the use of cyanide and a longer operating life than previously considered. The changes that have led to this new scope are based on community feedback on the earlier project proposal. For this project the EIA permit and compatibility with the European Union legislative requirement to protect habitats and species are the only major environmental approvals required.
