Mining in Sierra Leone

Mining in Sierra Leone

Mining in Sierra Leone is an important source of diamonds, titanium, bauxite and gold, and has one of the world’s largest deposits of rutile. Together, these minerals comprise about three-quarters of the country’s total export revenue.

Africa Mining IQ, Africa's largest online mining intelligence portal, currently indexes over 22 mining projects in Sierra Leone as part of an intelligence portal listing of close to 2 000 projects and mines. These include 8 diamond, 5 gold, 6 iron ore, 1 industrial and 2 rutile projects.

Several of these projects are in the pre-feasibility, feasibilityand bankable stages, and are currently tendering for project and equipment contracts as they gear towards extraction. Some these projects include:

  • The Baomahun Project. With a project value of over R1.5 billion, the resource is estimated to contain at least 200 000 ozs Au. Reserves support an open-pit operation with an average annual throughput of 2 Mtpa over a 13 year production life.
  • The Marampa Iron Ore Mine. The R35 billion Marampa project has early stage cash flow potential from the 80-90 million tonnes of iron tailings at the old mine, while a JORC Mineral Resource of 680 million tonnes Mt at 28.2% Fe above a cut-off grade of 15% Fe over four deposits provides massive later hard-rock potential.
  • The Komahun Project, Nimini Hills. With an exploration value of R132 million, the site has a Measured and Indicated Resource of 110 000 ozs grading 9.1 g/t Au and Inferred Resources of 435 000 ozs grading 4.3 g/t Au across a mine life of six years.
