World Leader in the Mining and Exploration Business
Go to Gold


The Ruia Gold Prospect is situated some 165km north east of Harare near Mount Darwin area. The area is known for gold mining but very little gold mining took place at a large scale. The prospect has ideal lithologies, structural controls and tectonic setting to host large tonnage but low grade gold deposits.


The chromium extracted from chromite is used in chrome plating and alloying for production of corrosion resistant superalloys, nichrome, and stainless steel. Chromium is used as a pigment for glass, glazes, and paint, and as an oxidizing agent for tanning leather. It is also sometimes used as a gemstone.

minerals exploration

Mineral exploration is a much more intensive, organized and professional form of mineral prospecting and, though it frequently uses the services of prospecting, the process of mineral exploration on the whole is much more involved.

Go to Mining


Ore is mined from two open pits that are along strike of the 60m wide shear hosted deposit. These two pits are encroaching toward each other and will ultimately become a single pit elongated along strike.Ore and waste are relatively soft ‘free dig’ material; however ore hardness beyond the zone of weathering requires blasting.

We are committed to building a diversified mining business that continuously creates and grows shareholder and stakeholder value through sustainable exploitation of mineral resources.
