RG Metals obtains exploration license in Mozambique to expand mineral deposit

Last week, Australian mining company MRG Metals revealed its significant achievement in obtaining a heavy mineral sands exploration license in Mozambique. The concession aims to expand the Koko Massava deposit, located approximately 40 kilometers from the proposed port of Chongoene, as well as the operation of the Chinese company DingSheng, located in the Chibuto district of Gaza province.
According to information published by the Mining Technology portal, MRG plans to implement an Environmental Management Plan (EMP) during the first quarter of 2024. Upon completion of this plan, the company intends to begin onshore exploration operations, demonstrating its commitment to actively collaborating with the government and the local community.
Andrew Van Der Zwan, chairman of MRG, expressed his satisfaction with obtaining the license, emphasizing the opportunity to launch a new campaign in the project area, located directly north of the Koko Massava deposit. “MRG is very pleased with the granting of the exploration license. We will be able to start a new campaign in this project area, which is directly north of our Koko Massava deposit,” said Van Der Zwan.

The chairman also pointed out that the company is now ideally placed to apply its proven low-cost exploration techniques. This breakthrough marks a new chapter for MRG Metals, which intends to consolidate its presence and economic contribution in Mozambique by further strengthening relations with local stakeholders.
MRG plans to maintain a transparent and collaborative approach, working hand in hand with the government and the community, reinforcing its commitment to responsible environmental practices and contributing to the sustainable development of the region. With the prospect of starting operations in the first quarter of 2024, the Australian company is projecting an exciting phase of expansion and progress on the Mozambican mining scene.
