In addition, the company has started a cooperation with an international mining engineering company to assess potential for accelerating mining operations and reduce operational risk going forward.

The company has reported good progress in the finalisation of critical aspects of its processing plant. Notably, the electrical work, fuel system, TSF, and piping are nearing completion, with expectations of concluding remaining work within the upcoming two weeks. Following this, the final commissioning phase will commence, with support from Universal Power Africa and Solo Resources.

Acknowledging the support from governmental bodies, particularly the Ministry of Mines (MoM), Akobo Minerals highlights improvements in logistics. Resolutions concerning diesel supply and expedited customs procedures for imported items are facilitating the timely execution of essential tasks. In contrast to the supply challenges of early 2024, Akobo Minerals has turned around its supply chain systems with the establishment of a procurement house and expeditor system. The company is now able to import goods from the world over at much improved lead times.

In a strategic move aimed at optimising operations and mitigating risks, Akobo Minerals has initiated a collaboration with an international engineering mining company. Leveraging their experience in managing mines across Africa, the collaboration seeks to explore avenues for enhancing operations at the Segele mine. The cooperation will initially focus on procurement and mining operations and may extend to include other aspects of both mining and processing plant operations through outsourcing.

Looking ahead, Akobo Minerals is optimistic about the production timeline, anticipating a commencement of production in July/August, contingent upon sustained progress and collaborative efforts.
