Project to mine copper in Mavoio, Angola, given green light

19 March 2014

The project to extract copper from Mavoio is under way in accordance with technical and scientific requirements and its dynamics are suitable for mining projects, Angola’s Minister of Geology and Mines indicated on Monday in Luanda.

Francisco de Queiroz said the project will definitely go ahead, thereby helping diversify mining operations in Angola.

At the end of a meeting to study the project’s status, Queiroz stressed that it was a “key project which the government sees as being very important”.

He added that it is not included in the 2013-2017 Middle Term National Development Plan, because the economic feasibility study will only be conducted in the last year. (macauhub)
