• Mkango CEO says new data confirms Malawi as serious mining destination

    Will Dawes, chief executive officer at Mkango Resources Ltd (LON:MKA) says he is very excited about the Rare Earth sector going forward. Just two weeks since listing on AIM, the group is to get its hands on new airborne data fund by the World Bank that will confirm it as a serious mining investment destination in the future. The data will cover the group’s licenses in Malawi and confirm existing anomalies and compliment ongoing discovery programmes. “We are one of the very few advanced stage Rare Earth projects and we’re the only focused Rare Earth company listed on AIM,” says Dawes. He told Proactive Investors that he was confident of the fundamentals of Rare Earth going forward. Dawes says that the outlook is “very good” over the next few years.

  • "Rubies and sapphires from Chimwadzulu, Malawi" by GIA

    In this video, you will experience the “warm heart of Africa,” as GIA field gemologists visit Malawi’s Chimwadzulu ruby mine for the very first time. Although this is one of the continent’s oldest-known ruby and sapphire deposits—discovered in 1958—it’s largely unknown to the gem trade or public at large. Malawi is one of the smallest African nations, bounded by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast, and Mozambique to the east, south, and west. The country is separated from Tanzania and Mozambique by the waters of Lake Malawi. “I read about Chimwadzulu a very long time ago…and this is a place I’ve wanted to come to for a very long time,” says GIA Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu. The deposit’s geology is very complex, he explains, and the mine’s sapphires provide a key to un...

In this video, you will experience the “warm heart of Africa,” as GIA field gemologists visit Malawi’s Chimwadzulu ruby mine for the very first time. Although this is one of the continent’s oldest-known ruby and sapphire deposits—discovered in 1958—it’s largely unknown to the gem trade or public at large. Malawi is one of the smallest African nations, bounded by Zambia to the northwest, Tanzania to the northeast, and Mozambique to the east, south, and west. The country is separated from Tanzania and Mozambique by the waters of Lake Malawi. “I read about Chimwadzulu a very long time ago…and this is a place I’ve wanted to come to for a very long time,” says GIA Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu. The deposit’s geology is very complex, he explains, and the mine’s sapphires provide a key to understanding it. Although the Chimwadzulu deposit is known for ruby and orange sapphire, it produces mainly pale green, blue, and yellow sapphire. As always, a core goal of the expedition is to procure samples for GIA’s research programs, but understanding the gems as part of the geology and the mining operation—along with the people who labor to produce it—is also tremendously important. “When you look at the stone, you don’t view it the same way when you have the story of the stone, too,” explains Pardieu. The country is struggling to develop, and ethical stewardship of its gem resources is a part of the solution. Some of the possible benefits to local communities are a hospital and a school funded by the Chimwadzulu mining operation—a consortium between Nyala Mines Ltd. and Columbia Gem House, Inc. Pardieu and his team were able to visit the facility and observe the difference it makes. “In many African countries, the right access to education and health is really a luxury,” remarks Pardieu. “…you’re bringing to these people what is normal for us, but a luxury for them.” They also visited the elementary school, gaining a snapshot of the country’s youth and their boundless potential if Malawi’s resources can be harnessed for the good of all its citizens. This GIA Field Expedition (FE56) took place in September 2014. Besides Pardieu, the participants were cameraman Didier Gruel and field gemologist trainee Stanislas Detroyat.

In this video, you’ll explore Mozambique’s Montepuez ruby deposit with GIA’s dedicated field gemology team. First, you’ll see how the legal owner of the mining rights—Montepuez Ruby Mining (MRM), a subsidiary of the Gemfields corporation—works the area in steps from prospecting through separating the rubies from the ore, to sorting and eventual sale at their Singapore rough auction. In the second part you’ll also catch a glimpse of a day in the life of the thousands of unlicensed miners—garimpeiros—who conduct unauthorized mining in the MRM-owned area. Since spring 2009, this east African country has emerged as the world’s leading ruby source. As Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu says of the Montepuez ruby deposit: “I have never seen any place where you have this combination of quantity, nice color, and nice clarity.” Every gem miner dreams of finding a big stone one day. “The garimpeiros here, most of them are local (meaning Mozambican) people,” explains Pardieu, “but there are also some Tanzanians here who are working with them. And the Tanzanians have a very good knowledge of ruby mining because you have ruby mining in Tanzania for more than 50 years.” You’ll see the conditions garimpeiros work under—the pits, the dirt—the rubies they find and how they live, and visit a garimpeiro village. Finally, you’ll visit foreign buyers in Montepuez, which, Pardieu explains, consist of “about 500 to 600 Thai people and about 100 people from Sri Lanka.” The cash gained by these buyers provides the economic impetus for continuing unauthorized mining inside the MRM perimeter. This GIA Field Expedition (FE56) took place in September 2014. Besides Pardieu, the participants were cameraman Didier Gruel, Field Gemologist Andy Lucas, Gems & Gemology Technical Editor Dr. Tao Hsu, and Field Gemologist trainee Stanislas Detroyat.

Both envoys expressed their joy at the new cordial relations, citing that there is mutual benefit for either side. On its part, Armenia is fondly looking to opening its doors to Malawi tour operators to visit the Asian country, boasting of century-old monasteries and other touristic resorts, while Malawi is keenly looking forward to explore opportunities that exist of its tobacco and other agricultural products. Armenia is a large tobacco and grain importer. Armenia also has a well-established mining industry and the Malawi envoy expressed his desire for Malawi to gain technological expertise from Armenia. According to a communiqué released after the ceremony, the two countries have agreed to promote their bilateral cooperation through their diplomatic missions at the United Nations and other convenient diplomatic channels. The two countries are convinced that the establishment of diplomatic relations corresponds with the national interests of both countries and will further strengthen international peace and security. Armenia became independent from the Soviet Union in 1991. Diplomatic relations like these are very important to nations as they promote international cooperation and partnerships in areas of common interest in world organizations such as the United Nations. Malawi has in the past six months established formal diplomatic relations with other countries such as Cambodia, Estonia, Slovakia, Montenegro, South Sudan, Mongolia, Georgia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Malta and Fiji.

This section of railway crosses Malawi making this an essential item of infrastructure for channeling mineral resources to the Indian Ocean coast. This project stunned us with its sheer quantity and engineering expertise incorporating the building of 22 new bridges, utilising 170 000 m3 , concrete, 13 000 tons of steel, 17 000 tons of cement, 200 000 m of soil nails and 240 000 units of railway sleepers! More than 3000 jobs were created by the project giving communities living along the railway a much-needed income. It also provided daily entertainment for many of the locals who followed the construction like you would follow your favourite soapy - eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first train through this hitherto undeveloped territory. Whilst hunting for beauty shots on the banks of Lake Malawi we ventured into the water to get that perfect jib shot. However, the local inhabitants looked on with amazement and later cautioned us that this part of the lake is home to two giant crocodiles. They even produced photographic evidence of them. “But don’t worry too much…’’, they laughed, “our crocodiles don’t like the taste of humans, they really prefer fish!” To the people of Malawi we say thank you for hospitality, and we can confirm that Malawi really is the Warm Heart of Africa.

With that new GIA Field video you will be taken with the GIA Field Expedition (FE56) that took place in September 2014 in Zambia. You will surely feel the lure of emerald—central Africa’s green treasure—in this short GIA video. First, you’ll visit the Musakashi, Zambia, emerald mining area where mining is carried out by local people with simple hand tools. Next, you’ll travel with Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu and the GIA team to Zambia’s Kafubu area, one of Africa’s oldest gem-mining areas. “There are maybe 400 mines, and maybe less than 10 are active,” says Pardieu. While there, you’ll witness several active emerald mines. Some are very small-scale and operated by local people, while some, like the MIKU and the KAGEM mines, are very large. The latter is probably the largest colored gemstone mining pit in the world. In this video, you’ll view the entire KAGEM operation—a modern, highly sophisticated mechanized pit mine. As you stand on the rim of the pit, a ripple of explosions blasts ore for processing. You will witness workers recovering emeralds from the pit. You’ll also venture underground into Gemfields’ exploratory underground workings and see the firm’s secure processing and sorting facility. Besides Pardieu, the participants were cameraman Didier Gruel, Field Gemologist Andy Lucas, Gems & Gemology Technical Editor Dr. Tao Hsu, and Field Gemologist trainee Stanislas Detroyat.

Zimbabwe's Government hopes the lifting of a 4 year ban on raw chrome exports will bolster the nation's ailing mining sector. It's estimated that the ban pushed at least 2000 small-scale miners out of business. CCTV's Farai Mwakutuya visited one of the regions set to benefit from the reversal of this disastrous policy.
