By the end of 2019, Guyana is expected to commence the production of manganese.
According to the Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman, before the fabrication of construction can commence at the Matthews Ridge, Region One mining site, the Chinese company Bosai needs to continue undertaking introductory works.
Minister Trotman informed the Department of Public Information (DPI) that preparatory works are planned for the concluding part of this year and is inclusive of a “wharf facility at Port Kaituma” and the improvement of roads from Port Kaituma to Pipiani and Matthews Ridge, along with advancement for the mines in the ore extraction. In addition, infrastructural works will be done to promote the procedure.
Bosai is anticipating employing a maximum of 1,200 people to participate while the construction is ongoing and 400 employees when the actual operation begins. The company while in production expects to “ship” some 350,000 tonnes of manganese annually.
Years ago, Manganese was mined in Guyana, also in Region One. A Subsidiary of Reunion Gold Corporation, Reunion Manganese Incorporated, has spent over US$50million to further describe what it described as a “world-class manganese deposit in Matthews Ridge.
According to the DPI, “There is an initial 10 million tonnes of concentrate with the potential to double with the addition of the satellite site of Pipiani.”
Reunion Gold Production, a Canadian Company that was developing the mine sold the project to Bosai Minerals Group Co. Limited, in November 2016.
Bosai agreed to pay Reunion US$10 million of which US$5 million would be payable at closing and US$5 million to be paid at the rate of US$2.00 per tonne of manganese concentrate or ore shipped from Matthews Ridge once it enters into production.
