Angola mining fair eyes investments in mothballed diamond mines

25 september 2012

Angola said the country’s fourth mining conference, which is penciled for this week seeks to attract new investments in the local diamond mines, particularly those mothballed.
Angop news agency reported that the International Mining Fair of Angola (FIMA) would attract 120 local and foreign firms.
The southern African country had earlier this year indicated plans to re-launch diamond mines abandoned during the global economic crisis of 2008/2009.
To show its seriousness, the State-owned diamond mining company, Endiama signed two prospecting and exploration contracts last July with its partners, Sitramal, Jall, Saccir, Yetyene and Solaris.
The first contract signed was for the Cacuala prospecting project, in the Lucapa municipal area of Lunda Norte province.
The second contract was for the Yetyene exploration project, also in Lunda Norte and had an initial investment of $10 million.
Endiama also signed a new diamond exploration contract for the Tchegi mining area last month.
The agreement was focused on alluvial diamond exploration in the provinces of Lunda Norte and Lunda Sul, across an area of 635.9 square kilometres.
