Sierra Leone a stable miningeconomy
The government of Sierra Leone is fully supportive of theimportance of mining and the income it brings from foreigninvestors such as Capital Mining. The diamonds and gold weare mining for are found in significant quantities in thecountry.
According to the Sierra Leone Investment and ExportPromotion Agency (SLIEPA, 2008):
With Sierra Leones long civil strife behind it, the country ispoised to usher in a new era of economic growth andprosperity. Having held successful democratic elections,economic recovery has begun, and increasing attention isbeing paid to creating the policies and developing theinfrastructure needed to support economic development andcreate jobs.
We anticipate that the countrys emerging economy willbenefit by opening out to Western investors. In the sevenyears since the civil war ended, things have changed. Thecountry is now very different in fact according to a reportby the World Bank dated September 2009, Sierra Leone hasmade key improvements in business reform*. According tothe report, overall Sierra Leone ranks ahead of its neighbours:Liberia (157), Guinea (171), and Cote DIvoire (161) in theMano River Basin.
On starting a business, one of the 10 indicators of the DoingBusiness index, Sierra Leone is the top performer in WestAfrica. In addition, the International Finance Corporation (amember of the World Bank group) is pleased with SierraLeones performance, since the improved rankingdemonstrates that the country is increasingly committed toreform agendas that make it easier to do business.
*According to Doing Business 2009, the sixth in an annual seriesof reports published by IFC and the World Bank.
In addition, according to International Monetary Fundestimates of GDP, Sierra Leone compares favourably with itsneighbours and estimates show the potential for significanteconomic growth predictions.
The UK remains one of the biggest supporters in assistingSierra Leone build its way back to recovery. For example, aswell as helping end the civil war, the UK has helped equip anew Police Force as part of a Commonwealth Training Team.The UK continues to help improve national security andimprove stability. This is echoed by the Sierra Leoneauthorities, and the President of Sierra Leone Ernest BaiKoroma has pledged zero tolerance on corruption. SierraLeone is an English-speaking country, and this is supportiveof business relationships with UK companies.
Sierra Leone - a stable mining economy
Diamonds mined in Sierra Leone typically score highly interms of value per rough carat. This is supported by arecent report from the internationally recognisedindependent minerals industry consultancy WardellArmstrong International (WAI) in their 2009 Proposal toProspect for Diamonds and Gold in Sierra Leone** as wellas from one of the most thorough and respected researchsources that of P.K. Hall The diamond fields of Sierra Leoneincluding detailed maps and analytical data from over 250test pits dug within Sierra Leone.***

According to WAI a number of international diamond miningcompanies have commenced exploration in Sierra Leone.They include African Diamonds, Mano River, Petra and TransHex. The prognosis has to be that both new production andthe legislation of existing output will boost the countrysoutput towards a declarable 3-4 million carats in the next fewyears. WAI believe that there is no reason why these depositsshould not yield their considerable potential when subject tothe mining processes we are operating.
