About us

Our Approach

Our purpose is to deliver critical metals to the European Union, which seeks reliable and unhindered access to raw materials, like gold and copper, from within the EU. We will do this whilst also driving socio-economic value for our people, partners and the communities in which we operate.

To deliver our commitment to our stakeholders, we have clear Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments that are aligned with internationally recognized standards and goals, and continuously engage with local residents and all levels of government.

Our mission is to responsibly develop a first-class EU-based gold and copper operation that supports the European Union’s plan to cut its dependence on China for raw materials and maximise stakeholder returns.

We have secured our social licence to operate by operating true to our values


We believe that regular and meaningful engagement has been key to progressing RVP to this stage and we are committed to continuing this level of communication.


We respect and protect the environment in which we operate. Our low-impact mining approach minimizes our effect on the physical environment and, through our forestation program, we will increase the amount of forest by 300% (currently estimated at 80 hectares deforested and 240 Ha of new forests to be planted).


Our positive impact must be long term. We will maximise our socio-economic benefits to the local communities through payment of mining royalties and taxes, local procurement of services and goods, and the generation of 1,500 to 2,000 new jobs.

Our Business Model

Unlocking value through the responsible development of one of the largest gold-copper projects in the European Union

Euro Sun Mining will create long-term value for all of our stakeholders through the responsible development of the Rovina Valley Project. 

This asset is highly leveraged to gold and copper prices while maintaining low AISCs ($790/AuEq oz in years 1-10 and $813 LOM as per 2021 DFS) and has customers in the EU, which seeks to become less dependent on regions like Africa, Asia and South America for its critical metals. 

RVP will also produce a clean, high-grade copper concentrate, which is ideal for European smelters, and our customers will be countries in the European Union that seek to take control of their supply chain and source critical metals from local mining jurisdictions, like Romania, which are governed by the rule of law, a transparent financial system, and have a Mining Code that provides general principles of transparency and free competition. 

Euro Sun Mining will create a positive range of outcomes for stakeholders in line with our commitments to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.



Our Strategy

To produce critical metals from our asset located in the EU to meet the increasing demand from European markets, which are taking steps to become more self-sufficient and cut their reliance on countries such as China for strategic resources. There is currently a short supply of copper and gold produced within Europe, and ESM is well placed to help fill that gap.

Our near-to medium term strategy is to complete the development and construction of the Rovina Valley Project. To achieve this objectives and further de-risk the project, we will receive the PUZ (re-zoning plan), Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and construction license as well as secure project financing and finalisation of offtake agreements.

Our long-term strategy is to responsibly operate one of Europe’s largest gold-copper mines.
