Emmerson PLC, down 35% at 2.36p, 12-month range 2p-8.09p. The Morocco-focused potash development company says a regional committee in Morocco did not approval its Khemisset project, and the application has been referred to a national committee.

The firm says basic engineering studies are reaching completion with final reports and designs due shortly. The environmental and social impact assessment approval process ‘remains the key priority’ for the company and ‘hinges on the impact of the project on water resources for the region, a sensitive issue in the context of climate change and recent droughts’. ‘The company has invested considerable time and resources into developing robust solutions in all these areas, reflecting international best practice,’ Emmerson affirms.
