Mining in Sierra Leone
Ayiko has obtained three mining concessions in Sierra Leone. Two mining concessions are for gold, one in the centre and the other in the south of the country. The mining concession for iron ore applies to the country's south western corner. The concessions cover an area of 150 square kilometres and can be extended to around 200 square kilometres each.
At this time detailed exploration programs are being worked out by a team of geologists led by the dean of geologists of Sierra Leone Professor Strasser-King. The exploration work itself will commence as soon as the authorities approve the exploration program.
