Equatorial Guinea, through the Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons, intends to fully tap into its minerals potential, especially in the Rio Muni area.
Investing in the establishment of one of the world’s most advanced automated underground gold mines is a major undertaking for any mining company.
Minerals are a finite resource and mine closure has a profound and often devastating impact on surrounding communities and towns.
"The DRC government has to reassure the mining sector on its ability to create a secure and stable investment and operating environment."
The mining industry is an energy-intensive industry - a situation that is compounded by its intensive use of fossil fuels to power its operations.
