The company is also expected to invest some 500,000 levs in mining activities.
The second concession, for the Lamburluka deposit in the Shumen province, was awarded to Shumen-based company Bars. The company is expected to pay concession fees of over 450,000 levs over the 21-year term of the contract, and invest some 50,000 levs in mining activities.
