African Minerals is a mineral and diamond exploration and production company focused on the West African country of Sierra Leone. Since 1996, African Minerals and its wholly owned subsidiaries have assembled what is the largest portfolio of mineral rights in Sierra Leone, covering 41,236 square kilometres.
Since its admission to AIM in 2005, the Company’s activities in Sierra Leone have evolved beyond diamond exploration and production. In addition to the iron ore projects at Tonkolili and Marampa, the Company has for the past two years been undertaking a country wide, multi-element analysis of stream and till sediments, primarily to determine sources of diamonds. As a result of this programme, the Company has located several sites which offer the potential for the discovery of base, precious and minor metals.
