The Primera Gold company captured, in forty-five days, a total volume of 207 kg of gold from artisanal mining in the province of South Kivu.
For the Congolese Minister of Finance, Nicolas Kazadi, this result constitutes a record in view of the data of previous years, i.e. 23 kg in 2021; 34 Kg in 2022; and 207K in 2023.
Primera Gold, a joint venture between the United Arab Emirates (55%) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (45%), exported, in early January 2023, its first batch of 28 kg of gold from artisanal mining in province of South Kivu.
The Congolese government aims to produce 15 million tonnes of gold this year through Primera Gold.
Since its establishment at the end of 2022, Primera Gold has been approved as a counter for the purchase and sale of artisanal gold in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
It should be noted that this joint venture plans to install, in the next few days, a gold processing refinery in the province of South Kivu.
