  • Uranium Mine in Niger Taken Over by French Forces Amid Mali Battles

    02/04/2013 French troops have been called to protect one of Niger's biggest uranium mines as security fears spike. Analyst John Laughland tells RT, that France taking the military lead in Mali and coming to Niger might be a sign of a continent-size interest. Niger's President Issoufou asked his counterpart Hollande for military help after the recent hostage crisis at an Algerian gas plant and over the growing threat of militant attacks since France launched its Operation Serval in neighboring Mali. French company Areva plays a major part in mining in Niger, the world's fifth-largest producer of uranium. The company gets much of its uranium from the two mines it operates in the country, at Arlit and Imouraren. Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three Fr...

    Here is a short movie about the artisanal miners and the way they work in Mali. This is the biggest gold rush in modern history and it is on now as we watch. We have tried to estimate how many people are working but it is very hard. The miners on the gold fields make a very good living from the hard work and they are using metal detectors, machines and normal pans to get the gold. We are very happy about the gold rush and it proves that hard work pays, in gold.

    PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE COMMENTING: The people mining this gold are local people who own the right to the gold through ancestral domain. In other words, they are not working for dirt under exploitative conditions. These are farmers who mine gold and fish between harvest and planting seasons. It is the only way some of them have to earn cash. They keep all the gold they find and sell it themselves at the fair market rate. They are not getting ripped off, and they are not being poisoned by mercury. Yes, there are mines in the hills near this location wher people are exploited and work under very dangerous conditions.

  • Hummingbird eyeing Mali gold production in 16 months

    Bert Monro, head of business development at Hummingbird Resources PLC (LON:HUM), says the fundraise for up to £52.7mln for the Yanfolila gold mine in Mali has been “extremely well supported by new and existing shareholders, and management are taking part as well.” He expects the project to be high margin, explaining that “the combination of the grade and open-pit mining means that you’re able to drive extremely high returns.” Crucially Hummingbird anticipates gold production in around 16 months time. Monro says Hummingbird is looking to hire some key positions both for the immediate construction as well as over the longer-term and, because not too many projects are currently being commissioned globally, it makes the job of hiring “world-class” people that bit easier.

Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three French nationals among them -- are still being held.Asked if he could confirm that French Special Forces are now guarding the uranium mine, President Issoufou told channel TV5: "Absolutely I can confirm." Niger's uranium mines are a major source of raw material for French nuclear power plants, so observers wonder if energy resources are a factor in the West's increased interest in the African continent. For more on that, RT talks to the director of studies at the Institute of democracy and cooperation in Paris, John Laughland. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

The water level is low enough to cross the river in some places. Most of the ladies arrive after noon and mine until sundown. The ladies carry a shovel and two calabash half shells; two different diameters so one fits into the other when they are on the move. Once in the water, one shell is used as a gold pan to "wash" gravel down to concentrates (black sand containing gold flakes and small nuggets) and the other calabash shell serves as holding vessel for the gold and black sands. It also serves as a peanut bowl. It seems all the people eat them while mining. The shovel has two or more purposes too; mostly digging and place marking. The ladies were even diving down and the shovel would hold their calabash shells from drifting away. The final gold is separated and collected back in the villages with the family. People are very friendly in that part of Mali. I was hired as the alluvial mining consultant. I lived in a village alongside the river for two weeks while starting the dredging operation. Complete harmony... NO mercury or chemicals are used to recover the gold. Simple sluice boxes like the old days still prove themselves to be an efficient means of recovering minerals from the prosperous river beds leaving no permanent damage. Some species of fish even use the old dredge holes for spawning. Anikay Bahh! Tenawsey tay Bahh!
