NioCorp Developments Ltd announced the Johnson County, Nebraska Board of Commissioners has approved a Special Use Permit for NioCorp's Elk Creek Superalloy Materials Project. Mineral extraction is already a permitted special use in the agricultural zoning district where the Project will be located. In approving NioCorp's permit, the County Commissioners found that the Project was not incompatible with agriculture use, was designed to minimize impacts on neighboring property, and would likely result in an appreciation of value of surrounding structures and property.

NioCorp agreed to enter into an agreement with Johnson County to upgrade Road 721 from the Right of Way of State Highway 50 to the entrance to the Project site. Currently a County maintained gravel road, Road 721 will be upgraded to a paved road which NioCorp will engineer, construct, and maintain for the County.

Additionally, NioCorp agreed to enter into an agreement with Johnson County to reimburse the County for the costs for additional law enforcement required during the construction phase of the Elk Creek Mine project, including costs of an additional Sheriffs Deputy and equipment.
