About us

The Company has a skilled leadership team with considerable experience in developing resource projects, and substantial experience in Ethiopia and throughout Africa.

We have compiled a detailed work plan for the development of a large mining operation at the Kenticha Project, a tantalum mine and lithium deposit situated in the Oromia Region in southern Ethiopia.

This includes in-country beneficiation as far along the beneficiation path as is technically and economically feasible.

Ethiopia is a highly prospective geological region, containing a world-class greenstone geological terrain. In comparison to other geological regions, Ethiopia is significantly under-explored, with minimal modern and systematic exploration applied historically.

We have assembled skilled leadership and technical teams with considerable experience in developing early-stage resource projects in Africa.

Our team has been working in Ethiopia since 2011 and have developed significant relationships within Ethiopia’s mining sector, with government officials and local stakeholders and the broader communities where we operate.
