Mining is a growing part of the Chicason Group. In Nigeria through its wholly owned subsidiaries: the group holds 34 barite mining concessions in three States and a quarry site in Abuja is being established to produce some 300 tons an hour of aggregates from gneiss.
Further afield in West Africa the group has 9 exploration licenses in Sierra Leone. This ground shows promise of iron, gold or diamond mineralisation. During 2014 a core drilling rig was moved inland and our field geologists are in the initial phase of reconnaissance mapping. Throughout West Africa we are also seeking opportunities in heavy minerals, precious metals and gemstones.View More
