300 new mining sites were discovered in Cameroon over the last five years, according to Cameroon’s Minister of Mining, Industries and Technological Development, Gabriel Dodo Ndoke.

New mines range from gold, zinc, rare earth, uranium, nickel and rutile to manganese, said Ndoke at the 2019 edition of Cameroon International Mining Exhibition and Conference (CIMEC), held from Monday to Wednesday in the capital city, Yaounde.

“The stakes of CIMEC are high given the multi-faceted, short and medium-term benefits accruing from investments made and which we wish to attain through the mining and processing of minerals,” Ndoke adds.

This year’s expo will feature an exhibition by mining companies and suppliers, speeches and discussions. More than 100 exhibitors will introduce the latest technology and equipment for the mining industry during the three-day expo, according to the organizer.
