Modern Mining March 2018 Front coverWe lead off our in-depth project coverage in this issue with a report on Shanta Gold’s New Luika Gold Mine (NLGM) near Mbeya in south-west Tanzania. The mine has now transitioned into being predominantly an underground operation, with two underground orebodies – Bauhinia Creek and Luika – currently being exploited and a third, Ilunga, to follow.

Featured in this issue are a review of the recent Mining Indaba in Cape Town, as well as articles on the Nokeng fluorspar project in South Africa, the T3 copper-silver project in Botswana and Yanfolila, Mali’s newest gold mine.

MM January 2018 Front coverPride of place in this issue goes to our annual ‘Africa’s Top Mining Projects’ feature. This year we’ve selected five projects, three in South Africa and two outside our borders, all of them notable for their size, innovation or pioneering spirit. They are the Ity CIL gold project in Côte d’Ivoire, the Bisie tin mine in the DRC, and – in South Africa – the Venetia Underground Project (VUP), the new processing plant at the Cullinan diamond mine, and the Booysendal South expansion at Northam’s Booysendal platinum mine.

ModernMiningGold mining may be in the doldrums in South Africa but the industry is booming in West Africa, as this month’s News section of Modern Mining makes clear.

In Mali, B2Gold’s new Fekola mine has just poured its first gold while in neighbouring Burkina Faso the first pour at Endeavour Mining’s Houndé gold project is imminent. Endeavour has also just given the go-ahead for the Ity CIL project in Côte d’Ivoire. Yet another gold project making good progress is Toro’s Mako gold mine in Senegal, now well into construction and due to start producing early in 2018.
