Mkango Resources CEO says Malawi is a serious mining destination

Mkango Resources, a mineral exploration company focused on the Songwe Hill Rare Earths Project in Phalombe, Malawi, was successfully listed on the London Stock Exchanges Alternative Investment Market. Mkango is already listed on Toronto Stock Exchange’s Venture Exchange.

The compnay has subsequently announced it will purchase geo-data from the Malawi Geological Survey Department following the World Bank and European Union financed airborne geophysical survey to confirm its existing anomalies.

Mkango also has an exclusive prospective licence for Thambani in Mwanza District covering an area with uranium anomalies.

CEO of Mkango Resources, Will Dawes, spoke to Proactive Investors UK and says that the World Bank Malawi Mining Governance and Growth Support Project will confirm “Malawi as a serious mining destination”.

Mkango has completed a pre-feasibility study for the rare earths project in Phalombe which was updated last November. They report an after-tax net present value (NPV10%) of US$345 million and after-tax internal rate of return (IRR) of 37%..

A 37% IRR speaks of impressive investment prospects for capital. I wonder how much informed the Government of Malawi is to insure its interests; considering how exploitative private capital tends to be.
