We are proud to announce that we have been accepted as full members of the British Chamber of Commerce in Kazakhstan (BCCK)
BCCK is developing a strong interest in mining within this mineral rich country and we hope to see considerable developments in the next few years after a period of poor foreign investment. More on this on BCCK's website here.
In almost 11 years that we have been in Kazakhstan, we have developed a strong understanding and knowledge of the country, its social and business cultures and of course mining in the region.
Chris Brodie had the good fortune to work for Newmont Mining from Jul 1999 until Dec 2005. What an excellent employer then and, from its ambitions reflected in this article in mining.com, it seems to be continuing this trend.
Their new project in Suriname will add to their productivity. We wish them good fortune.
I spent much of 2015 working in Burkina Faso, at the Karma project during development, then owned by True Gold Mining, now taken over by Endeavour Mining.
My task was to design supply chain processes to suit a developing mine in a remote region, compatible with its chosen ERP system.
Burkina Faso is an exciting country for mining and our associate company Aquila Limited is today supplying Chinese and SE Asian mining consumables to this country.
