LJUBLJANA (Slovenia), July 12 (SeeNews) - The Slovenian government said it has adopted regulations needed to award concession rights for gravel extraction at three sites in the northeastern part of the country.

The mining rights are being issued for the sites of Pleterje PPK2, Pleterje P4 and Pleterje P2e in Kidricevo municipality, the government said in a statement on Thursday after its regular weekly meeting.

Hajdina-based firm Epson has applied to be granted 10-year mining rights for the Pleterje P4 location, which spreads on an area of three hectares. The company plans to mine 165,250 cubic metres of gravel.

Ptuj-based company Dujardin had submitted an application for nine-year mining rights for the extraction of 217,050 cubic metres of gravel at Pleterje PPK2 site spreading on 3.98 hectares.
