Since 2005, this strategic project has been developed by MABOUMINE company (1) under the leadership of the French mining and metal group ERAMET and with the strong support of Gabonese authorities and local communities.

The extensive development effort carried out so far has enabled the establishment of a sound knowledge of the deposit while developing an innovative metallurgical process able to recover most of the value-metals embedded in the ore.

Although the economic potential of the deposit was confirmed by a recently updated
preliminary feasibility study, Maboumine has recently considered an alternative project scenario involving a
reduced scope and CAPEX, more adapted to current market conditions.

MABOUMINE is now looking for one or several partners able to bring the technical capabilities and financial resources required to turn this outstanding deposit into a successful commercial venture.
