African Quartz

Dr George is the founder Executive Chairperson of African Quartz. African Quartz maintains the electricity solutions for the continent cannot be imported but must be implemented through mining, beneficiation, manufacturing, localisation and industrialisation to support economic growth, employment creation and entrepreneurship opportunities for unemployed young people. African Quartz Mining intends to mine the pegmatites in bulk through rollover (concurrent rehabilitation) opencast mining method employing drilling, blasting, loading and hauling to a mobile crusher facility for the correct sizing of the feed material before milling. Furthermore, African Quartz Silicon intends to establish a Submerged ARC Furnace Plant. African Quartz Crystal Growth will acquire the Czochralski crystal-growing system that has been specially designed for industrial production of monocrystalline Silicon crystals. The Czochralski process is also known as “crystal pulling” or “pulling from the melt”.

Exporien Mining P/L.
Exporien Mining P/L.

Exporien Mining P/L has interests in gold claims and coal bed methane gas (CBM) concessions. The gold claims are located in the Shurugwi district in the southern parts of Zimbabwe. The company’s coal bed methane gas concessions are located in the Midlands and Matabeleland North provinces of Zimbabwe. The company has undertaken quite extensive desktop studies which include remote sensing studies on both the gold claims and CBM concessions. The depressed investment appetite for Zimbabwe projects has delayed significant progress in developing these assets as the company seeks funding and technical partners with capacity to turn these tenements into producing assets. Exporien Mining has confidence in the perspectivity of its assets based on the studies carried out to date. Exporien Mining has had a number of companies out of South Africa, Europe and Australia express interest in its assets but these companies remain on the peripheries watching developments in the perceived risk associated with FDI into Zimbabwe.

Marenica Energy Limited
Marenica Energy Limited

Marenica is one of the most active uranium focused companies listed on the ASX. Marenica has been proactive through the period of low uranium prices, building the company through organic and inorganic growth. Marenica has geographically diverse assets with a successful exploration program in Namibia with significant upside potential, and recently acquired assets in Australia.
These assets are high value assets in their own right, but when Marenica applies its proprietary beneficiation process (U-pgradeTM), the value addition takes these assets to another level. U-pgradeTM is a patented beneficiation process developed in house and has the potential to reduce the capital and operating costs by 50% compared to conventional technology.
U-pgradeTM, a process that no other uranium company has, provides Marenica with a strategic advantage which clearly differentiates it from its peers.
