I2M Team Publishes Paper on Gold and Silver Mining Potential in North Vietnam

Members of the the I2M Natural Resources Group (consisting of Michael D. Campbell, I2M’s EVP and Chief Geologist, Roger W. Lee, I2M’s Senior Associate, and M. David Campbell, I2M’s VP and Senior Mining Geologist, just published a paper in the Journal of Geology and Geoscience in London on the mining potential southwest of Hanoi, Vietnam in the Đồi Bù District, Hòa Bình Region (here). The area was visited during January, 2014. The key conclusions of the assessment were that subject area has not been explored in any detail for many decades. The Chinese (pre-1900s), and then later the French (pre-1960s), conducted basic reconnaissance and produced the early maps of the area. During the 1960s and 1970s, the USSR explored the area in some detail via outcrop sampling programs and some drilling, but many sites within the area of interest remain poorly investigated and untested. The general area has received only superficial investigation to date of the obvious fracture zones and associated shallow geological structures. Since the late 1980s, the Vietnamese Geological Survey and associated universities have undertaken the systematic assembly and cataloging of all available geological, geophysical, and mining information on the reported minerals present in Vietnam, almost all of which is in Vietnamese.

Based on the samples taken from outcrop, evaluated, and tested at an international laboratory, the authors […]

40-day fact-finding tour of Africa

Jeffrey D. King, P.G., President and Senior Project Manager of I2M, returned from a 40-day fact-finding tour of Africa. His stops included Monrovia, Liberia; Lusaka, Zambia, Harare, Zimbabwe and Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa. He found Monrovia to be a thriving city, especially after the recent elections. The in-county individuals he met were especially gracious and accommodating. Mining investments and operations are expanding rapidly in Liberia and opportunity is apparent. He found Zambia, and Zimbabwe to be extremely impressive with joyful, hard working and industrious people who if trained properly would be excellent workers. Even with the discussions of nationalization and other proposed policy changes by the African National Congress (ANC) in South Africa the country continues to bustle with new and old mining activities and opportunities. In summary he reports that given positive local relationships, the countries visited still offer very viable mining opportunities.
