MINKIE PROJECT

  • LOCATION
  • The Minkie G9-981 small-scale mining permit (PEMPE) is located in northern Gabon, 97 km from Mitzic in the Woleu Ntem province. 

     

  • VALIDITY OF THE PERMIT
  • Minkie's PEMPE G9-981 was awarded on December 18, 2020 for a term of 5 years, it expires on December 18, 2025.


  • GEOLOGICAL CONTEXT AND MINERALIZATION
  • In the vicinity of the permit, a Neoarchean plutonic suite of porphyritic monzogranitic intrusions is observed, posterior to the emplacement of the greenstone procession.  

    These granitic intrusions appear to be reservoirs of hydrothermal fluids, which may have favoured the migration of gold present in the greenstone belts, following fault zones. 


  • SUMMARY
    • Area of the mining permit: 50 km2
    • Area of the research permit : 1445 km2
    • Planned alluvial gold resources are approximately on 1/3 of the permit: 447 kg

    • Life of mine: 4 years
    • Monthly alluvial gold production recorded: 20 kg
