Canada’s African Queen Mines finds copper, gold and silver in Mozambique

1 February 2011

Vancouver, Canada, 1 Feb – Canadian mining group African Queen Mines said Monday in Vancouver that the final results of surveys carried out at its Rei Salomão (King Solomon) project in Mozambique’s Tete province had shown significant deposits of copper, gold and silver.

After drilling 19 holes in several locations of its concession area, it was possible to conclude that there were significant deposits of those three metals, and chief executive, Irwin Olian said that, “we were quite encouraged by the results of prospecting.”

The company also said in its statement published on its website that it would go ahead with drilling in other areas.

African Queen Mines, which is based in Vancouver, via its subsidiaries mines concessions in Mozambique, Kenya and Ghana in search of gold and other metals and in Botswana and Namibia in search of diamonds. (macauhub)
