VANCOUVER, April 11 /CNW/ - EMC Metals Corp. (the "Company" or "EMC") (TSX: EMC) advises that environmental site work is being initiated on the Nyngan Scandium Project in NSW, Australia, in support of a feasibility study planned for the project later this year. Following the appointment of John Thompson to the position of VP Project Development last month, certain elements of the Environmental Impact Study have begun, under direction from R. W. Corkery & Co., (Orange, NSW, Australia).

Specific work steps have been or will shortly be initiated, including:

    -  ground water assessment program (including drilling),
    -  surface water assessment program,
    -  Aboriginal heritage review,
    -  ecology review,
    -  traffic, noise and air quality baseline monitoring, and
    -  aerial photography and contour mapping for the property, specifically
       the anticipated location of site facilities.

The ground water assessment work will commence in April, with a program to install 8 ground water bores to test and evaluate the presence, salinity, and volumes of natural ground water, both in the proposed open pit area as well as anticipated facilities locations. Permanent water monitoring equipment will be installed in the bores to collect ongoing seasonal data on well water levels and conditions. A surface water study will follow the ground water study. Aerial mapping and the subsequent ground survey will also be commissioned in early May so as to provide accurate topographical survey information for design and operational purposes in the project area.

Discussions with property neighbors, the local community, and with regulatory authorities will be ongoing during this work, and will continue with the feasibility study and permitting efforts that are expected to extend through the year. The results from this work will be included in the Nyngan Project's Environmental Impact Study (EIS) which is required for approval of a mining permit for the project.
