Morila Mine Banner


Mine closure was originally scheduled for 2013 but retreatment of the TSF material, mining of the Domba satellite pit and an agreement to acquire Birimian Limited’s Ntiola and Viper targets, have extended the life of mine to 2020. 

Work continues on the development of commercial agribusiness to provide sustainable economic activity in the area once the mine closes.
