The Minister of Mines and Marine Resources, Timothy Kabba has on 26 February 2021, commissioned the alluvial plant of the Cheng Li Mining Company at Diang Chiefdom, Koinadugu District.

Minister Kabba expressed his thanks and appreciation to the Mining Country Representative, Mr. Fassalay Tarawally, for his relentless effort in creating job opportunities for the people of Sierra Leone.

He continued by saying that, as a government, they are always ready to support him since the country needs people like him who think of adding value to the country.

The Country Representative of the Cheng Li Mining Company, Mr. Fassalay Tarawally stated that the commissioning of the alluvial plant is just the beginning of the mining operations as the company is a two-face mining company, and it would commission the hard rock plant within six (6) months.

“In One year, the company is expected to start producing 99.9 billion gold bars for exporting,” Mr. Tarawally estimated.

Given his (Tarrawally’s) over ten years’ experience as an exporter of diamonds and gold in the country, it is the expectation of the minister that Cheng Li will do the needful.

Cheng Li Mining Company is a largescale gold mining company which is an affiliated mining company that engages in mining activities.

Cheng Li has officially started operations after Six (6) months of site preparations and camps building.

It is expected to employ hundreds of Sierra Leoneans by the end of 2021, of which more priority would be given to the people of Diang Chiefdom.
