    The long-awaited exploitation of Minim-Martap Bauxite deposit in Northern Cameroon could be started in 2022. This wish has been rendered by the Project Manager, James Durant in Minim on 13th February’20.

    The project its hand over by the Cameroonian government to Australian junior mining company Canyon Resources is being implemented by Canyon Resources’ subsidiary Camalco.

    A little more than a year after Camalco launched (in September 2018) the last phase of research on this mining project, James Durant visited Cameroon from February 13th to 14th, 2020. He is accompanied by a team of mining, rail, and environmental logistics experts. These experts came to check the project and finalize the pre-feasibility study of this mining project by the end of April 2020.

    The team went to Ngaoundal, Minim, and Martap. During this field visit, James Durant stated that based on the results obtained during complementary exploration work, Canyon Resources expects to launch the exploitation of this bauxite deposit, Cameroon’s largest, in 2022. 

    The current scenario, which is to be refined and presented to Cameroonian authorities and potential financial partners, plans for the opening of a 20 km road from the various mining sites to Makor. From this locality in the Adamaoua region, which houses a railway station, the ore will be transported by rail to the port of Douala or Kribi for export.

    Canyon Resources, which has three 3-year non-renewable exploration licenses on the Minim-Martap, Ngaoundal and Makan deposits, intends to produce and export cargo of 3 million tons each year, before gradually increasing its capacity. This is a real opportunity for Cameroon's rail carrier, Camrail, which so far has never reached 2 million tons of goods transported per year.
