We are a mining company based in Nigeria. We are involved in the production of copper ore, lead ore, zinc ore, tin ore, tantalite ore, columbite ore, iron ore, lithium ore and gold. Our mines are based in different parts of Nigeria.
Nigeria is reputed to have forty-four (44) minerals – precious, ferrous, non-ferrous and rare earth in commercial quantities; located and situated in over 500 communities across the length and breadth of Nigeria. The Nigerian mining industry is heavily fragmented, with the entire country rich in minerals yet lacking mining majors and investors.
In fact, asides from its known minerals, including iron ore, gold, lithium, tantalite, Palladium, tin, columbite, cobalt and tourmaline, there remains an entire landscape littered with minerals yet to be discovered.
As The Governance Structure and Regulatory Framework continues to evolve, it would not be wrong to agree that in the mining world, Nigeria remains one of the best-kept secrets allowing the heavily underfunded artisanal and small-scale miners to have their day.
With all of these in consideration, Nigeria is rightly a mining destination to the world!
Our Board at Augustina Impex Ltd, has acquired some mining exploration licenses from the Nigerian Government’s Mines Cadastral Office. Preliminary investigations show that these mines are within an established spodumene mineralization belt which run-off-mines are known to contain up to 7% “Li” content for spodumene, 4% “Li” in lepidolite and 12% “Li” in amblygonite, making it naturally attractive for Direct Shipped Ore.
Aside from the ongoing production of lithium ore, we are also involved in the mining of lead ore, zinc ore, copper ore, tin ore, tantalite ore, columbite ore, iron ore, lithium ore and gold. For lithium ore, we produce lepidolite, amblygonite and spodumene.
