Rimco Mining was founded in 2009 to provide mineral products to Nigeria’s industrialising economy. Production activities are conducted from Daudu in Benue State. Presently Rimco has 34 concessions related to exploration or mining in Nigeria. High quality barite production takes place in Cross River State; Prospecting for barite, lead, zinc, gold and industrial minerals spans the entire country. Further afield in West Africa, primarily in Sierra Leone, Rimco is conducting aerial and stream sediment surveys to prospect for gold, diamonds and other heavy minerals.
Various grades of barite are available; some of which are over 90% pure BaSO4 for pharmaceutical use, petroleum upstream use and manufacturing industries.
