A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY

Another Australian firm joins local gold rush


AN Australian company, Western Metals, is reported to have signed a binding heads of agreement with compatriot firm Sub-Sahara Resources (SBS) to acquire the latter’s interest in a number of gold exploration projects in Tanzania.

The purchase price for the gold deposits would be an estimated $6.25m, the reports say.

SBS will use the funds from this transaction to further advance the high-grade Koka gold deposit in Eritrea, which contains an indicated and inferred resource of about 1.04-million tonnes, at a grading of 6.2 g/t gold.

Western Metals has already paid a deposit of A$100,000 (Australian dollars) on the signing of the agreement, and is to pay a further deposit of A$150,000 on the signing of a formal agreement.

Another estimated A$750,000 will be payable on the completion of the transaction, with a further A$250,000 payable on December 31 this year, subject to the finalization of certain tax liabilities.

Western Metals will also pay A$5 million at the start of commercial production from the Nyanzaga gold project in Tanzania, which hosted the Tusker gold deposit, and has an estimated resource of 4.5 million tonnes, at a grading of 1.15 g/t gold.

There are also reports that yet another Australian mineral exploration firm, Atomic Resources, is nurturing its relationships with the Government of Tanzania in order to gain inside running in accessing the country’s vast coal reserves, as well as a potentially lucrative opportunity to develop local power stations.

According to the reports, Atomic Resources was primarily involved with uranium in Western Australia and Tanzania, and it was during discussions with the Tanzanian Government regarding yellowcake deposits that coal-mining opportunities in the country became apparent.

In yet another development, BAM International has won two new contracts in Tanzania worth over 55 million euros ($69m).

Through a joint venture with Denmark’s Per Aarsleff, the Canadian-headquartered company will renovate 150 kilometres of the Tanzania-Zambia highway between Iyovia and Iringa, on behalf of the Tanzania Roads Agency (TANROADS).

Officials say the contract is worth about 30 million euros ($37.8m). The project is supported by the Danish Government, and is expected to be completed by mid-2011.

BAM International has also started phase 2 of the rehabilitation of the Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam, on behalf of the Tanzania Airports Authority (TAA).

This contract is worth 26 million euros ($32.7m), and the project is expected to last two years. It is financed 50-50 by the Tanzanian Government and a grant from the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Development Co-operation)’s development-related export transactions fund.

The work includes upgrading the airfield’s ground lighting system, rehabilitating existing taxiways, constructing new taxiways, upgrading the secondary runway and apron, improving the existing drainage system, and improving the ’environmental situation’ around the airport.

BAM International completed phase 1 of the project in 2006, including the laying of a new asphalt surface on three kilometres of runway and aircraft aprons, and replacing the runway lighting.
