LIBERTY LOCAL MINERS LTD GRANTED PERMIT IN ESSEKA

Ministry of Mines Cameroon Granted Liberty Local Miners Ltd mining permit in esseka.

In this eastern department alone, where there are officially 30 mining companies, 200 new permits have been issued to mining operators since the start of 2018, generating a total of 500 million FCfa in public revenue.

Besides gold, which is the most mined mineral by small scale entities in this part of Cameroon, the region is home to the Mbalam iron deposits, Lomié’s nickel and cobalt ore and Mobilong’s diamonds which, respectively, have “world class” potential, according to experts. However, their development has been on hold for eons now.
