The exploration of phosphates in Cacata in the central province of Cabinda, will begin in 2019, said the minister of Geology and Mining, Francisco Queiroz, in statements made on Monday in the provincial capital.

The minister travelled to the province to assess the implementation status of the project for exploration of phosphates and other mineral resources such as gold, according to Angolan state news agency Angop.

Queiroz visited the works of the deep water port of Caio-Litoral, and stressed that this is an important facility for the success of the phosphate project, as it is essential for exporting the product.

During a meeting with the provincial governor, Aldina Catembo and mining industry entrepreneurs in the province, the minister gave assurances of the support of the ministry responsible so that the projects underway in the province can begin as soon as possible. (macauhub)
