The company aims to explore, develop and mine the base metal deposits.
Two aspects are therefore defined here:
The company works as a consultant for local investors as it has been
done with SMB in their PE4731, METACHEM in their PR7056 and KALIKA Mining in their PEPM7057, 7058
The company works in its own licenses as it’s going on in PR13700 and PR13735
The main objective of the company is to create in the area employments and improve
the level of mining from the small scale to the industrial that is a guarantee of sustainable development in the world.
As Consultant Company, SAMIKIVU Sarl has considerably contributed to the stability study of
the SMB mining, made a mining design that has been applied giving good results.
SAMIKIVU Sarl proposed drilling for a reasonably mining plan.
Nowadays the company is focused on activities on PR13700 in Masisi territory, North-Kivu.
SAMIKIVU Sarl having found the artisanal miners who are still doing small-scale exploitation
due to lack of an appropriate mining technology in its mining license; now try to follow them up.
This in order to protect on one side the company target zones of interest and the other side to
increase their production performance regarding the rules of the safety mining.
Thus, bellow the following activities ongoing on the PR13700 supervised by the SAMIKIVU Sarl team:
Following up and assisting artisanal miners within the cooperative COMIMU/COOP-CA.
Regular production of columbite-tantalite and Cassiterite with a statistic of
25 kg of Nb-Ta by week since may; this is the possibility of directly hosting an ore
body that needs more efforts for industrial mining
Sample analysis are often done to determine grade in Nb-Ta as well as Sn, this helps
to appreciate the enrichment of the ground in mineral commodity; this step is done during
the investigation operations from the artisanal pits with XRF method. All the data are
plotted on plans maps drawn on a scale of 1:500 and 1:2000.
Investigation by means the artisanal pits: put out all informations regarding mineralization
and structural control in addition to our data recording from geological survey.
The company object is build a mining project that will generate an employment for local
people and contribute to develop particularly our province and generally our country.
This aim needs to be supported financially with strong economy that could resist against hazards,
such as changes in market demand, commodity prices, mining costs, taxes, environmental legislation
and other factors.
This will allow:
To ensure a proper mining activity starting by an appropriate exploration
method within a reasonable time frame;
Ensure a logistic supply for a safe weekly trips on the site.
Install a proper base camp to the site with guards; including prep-lab, office, guest house.
Identify the resources by mean a proper technics.
Make a partnership with road maintenance company and guards companies for safety in mining operations.
To establish a cash flow for artisanal mining activities.
Our activities domains
In one word, our plan consists on:
A review of all available information on a prospect, such as government geological mapping and
geophysical surveys, the results of previous exploration and the known occurrence of minerals;
Preliminary geological interpretations of air photographs and remote sensed imagery;
regional and detailed geological mapping;
Detailed rock-chip and soil sampling for geochemistry
Regional and detailed geophysical surveys;
Shallow pattern drilling for regolith or bedrock geochemistry;
Drilling aimed at increasing mineralization control
In additional to these process, SAMIKIVU aims to do more in Target Drilling, Resource Evaluation Drilling,
and Feasibility Study for bankable project.
Artisanal mining progress
Concerning the purpose to create responsible mineral supply chains that avoid contributing to conflict,
human rights abuses, or other risks such as bribery, iTSCi mineral traceability process in
Mutanga mine site covered by PR13700 SAMIKIVU Sarl commenced since May.
The artisanal activities are in progress with tagging mineral pack regarding the joint initiative of
governmental authorities, companies and civil society organisations.
Pitting are in continuation in both aim for geological investigation and artisanal mining production.
A statistical of production give 25 kg of Nb-Ta and 30 kg of Sn. This is a weekly average production due to the weak activities regarding the available capital.
