• "Rubies from Montepuez, Mozambique" by GIA

    In this video, you’ll explore Mozambique’s Montepuez ruby deposit with GIA’s dedicated field gemology team. First, you’ll see how the legal owner of the mining rights—Montepuez Ruby Mining (MRM), a subsidiary of the Gemfields corporation—works the area in steps from prospecting through separating the rubies from the ore, to sorting and eventual sale at their Singapore rough auction. In the second part you’ll also catch a glimpse of a day in the life of the thousands of unlicensed miners—garimpeiros—who conduct unauthorized mining in the MRM-owned area. Since spring 2009, this east African country has emerged as the world’s leading ruby source. As Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu says of the Montepuez ruby deposit: “I have never seen any place where you have this combination of quantity, ...

  • Africa Investigates - Mozambique's Gem Wars

    Six years ago local hunters stumbled on one of the world's largest deposit of rubies in the northern province of Mozambique, a potential source of riches for a country in which much of the population lives on less than a dollar a day. The deposits are now being mined by a local company, Mwriti, in partnership with a British company, Gemfields, which owns the luxury Fabergé brand and prides itself on the ethical sourcing of precious stones - "completely traceable from mine to market". Their joint venture, 75 percent owned by Gemfields, controls a concession that covers 340 square kilometres of land and promises to be hugely profitable. But disturbing allegations have emerged that threaten to cast a dark shadow over the project. For this episode of Africa Investigates, Mozambican jour...

  • Coal Rush in Mozambique | Global 3000

    A few years ago, what's thought to be the world's largest coal deposits were discovered in north-western Mozambique. Tete Province is sitting on billions of tonnes of coal reserves. The discovery has transformed the region. The prospect of reaping huge profits has led some of the world's biggest multinational mining companies to invest billions here. But is the local population benefiting from the boom? For more go to: http://www.dw.de/global-3000-the-globalization-program-2012-11-26/e-16362981-9798

    When Mozambique emerged from a 17 year civil war in 1992, its economy was in tatters, infrastructure had been destroyed and there was no industry to speak of. A peace deal between Frelimo and Renamo, put an end to the conflict. At the same time there were some important developments going on next door. The release of Nelson Mandela from 27 years of imprisonment and the ensuing democracy provided the impetus for further regional stability. And it set the stage for sound macroeconomic reform and rapid growth Mozambique would experience over the next decade.

  • Journey to ‘Mine free’ Mozambique

    http://www.halotrust.org After the civil war, Mozambique was one of the most mined countries in the world. On 17 September 2015 the government of Mozambique declared it ‘mine free’. Over the course of 22 years, The HALO Trust has employed 1,600 Mozambican men and women who have cleared more than 171,000 landmines from over 1,100 minefields. That’s about 80% of all landmines destroyed in Mozambique. Before HALO began its pioneering clearance programme in 1993, landmines caused hundreds of accidents a year, including fatalities and amputations. Now the people of Mozambique can live safer lives, free from the fear of mines. The impact of mine clearance can be felt across Mozambique, from small rural communities to cities like Maputo. It has unlocked agricultural land, helped lift rural co...

Commodity prices to rise? Archer outlined that it is hard to see optimism in the current commodity environment, but bringing mines online now is a real opportunity with normalisation on the cards and commodity prices to rise. Copper to recover with China Archer commented that he expects an increase in global industrial production, but for now Copper remains a hostage of the China situation, with 40% of global copper production being directed to the country.

Since spring 2009, this east African country has emerged as the world’s leading ruby source. As Field Gemologist Vincent Pardieu says of the Montepuez ruby deposit: “I have never seen any place where you have this combination of quantity, nice color, and nice clarity.” Every gem miner dreams of finding a big stone one day. “The garimpeiros here, most of them are local (meaning Mozambican) people,” explains Pardieu, “but there are also some Tanzanians here who are working with them. And the Tanzanians have a very good knowledge of ruby mining because you have ruby mining in Tanzania for more than 50 years.” You’ll see the conditions garimpeiros work under—the pits, the dirt—the rubies they find and how they live, and visit a garimpeiro village. Finally, you’ll visit foreign buyers in Montepuez, which, Pardieu explains, consist of “about 500 to 600 Thai people and about 100 people from Sri Lanka.” The cash gained by these buyers provides the economic impetus for continuing unauthorized mining inside the MRM perimeter. This GIA Field Expedition (FE56) took place in September 2014. Besides Pardieu, the participants were cameraman Didier Gruel, Field Gemologist Andy Lucas, Gems & Gemology Technical Editor Dr. Tao Hsu, and Field Gemologist trainee Stanislas Detroyat.

He continued that he hoped China would continue to grow, along with increased consumption from India and the US. Oman the focus for Savannah Resources He noted that Oman has development potential, with good infrastructure, a history of copper success and an export port very close. Archer believed the low operating costs where Savannah Resources have saved around $10 million and 3 years of drilling, have reduced the time frame to 2 years before the first production of copper is achieved. He also added that both Oman, and their other project in Mozambique, have quality management teams and aim to deliver value in the current market.
