Oraco says issuance of Sierra Leone diamond mining licences in the offing

26 september 2012

Oraco Resources, which is engaged mainly in the exploration and development of diamond deposits, said that it will soon obtain governmental licences to commence operations at its Nimini Hills site in the Kono Koidu region of Sierra Leone.
The project had a significant potential for the recovery of relatively high quality large stones and gold mineralisation.
Oraco president and chief executive Brad Rosen said that the company should have the licenses in hand within the next few days.
"This is very thrilling news, and couldn't come at a better time. With the rainy season coming to an end, these licenses will enable us to not only do sampling, but will allow us to begin operations at a centralized site that the empirical evidence has indicated is one of the most promising locations in the entire area," he said.
Other sites of Oraco in the Kono Koidu area included Boroma, Tailings Number 5 and Zimmi.
The company had to date secured a series of alluvial and eluvial assets, which its exploration and development teams were working on to progress with operations in Sierra Leone.
