Canadian company finds gold and silver in Gorongosa, Mozambique

9 November 2012

The Toronto-based mining company Brigadier Gold has announced that samples from its Tsiquire concession in the Gorongosa district of Sofala province in central Mozambique indicate the presence of significant amounts of gold and the presence of silver, Mozambique’s AIM news agency reports.

Brigadier Gold gathered 41 samples in October, which were tested along with others collected last June. The samples cover an area of 1.2 square kilometres.

Brigadier Gold “believes that these samples, combined with the apparent manifestation of mineralisation, encourage more prospecting”.

The Tsiquire gold project involves an area of 2,560 hectares near the town of Gorongosa.

The Chinese company Sogecoa, a subsidiary of the Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Group, is also prospecting for gold in the Gorongosa district. (macauhub)
