As Ethiopia becomes the fastest growing economy in the world, KEFI Minerals looks set to lay the foundations for the country to become a major player in the mining market, all through its flagship Tulu Kapi Gold project.
Hidden in the remote hills of Western Ethiopia lies the Tulu Kapi Gold Project – a lucrative mining operation owned by KEFI Minerals. Thanks to the company’s hands-on business approach, Tulu Kapi Gold Project will not only generate an impressive gold yield once operational in 2019, it will also make a lasting contribution to the local community.
Executive Chairman of KEFI Minerals, Harry Anagnostaras-Adams, has an impressive portfolio of work – stretching from Europe to Africa, Australia, and the Middle East. But it is the company’s projects in the Arabian-Nubian shield, such as the Tulu Kapi project, which he believes are gamechanging.
“Some of the team at KEFI Minerals are from Western Australia, an area which is geologically similar to the Arabian-Nubian shield, and so we feel we know what’s going to happen,” says Anagnostaras-Adams. “The Arabian-Nubian shield – including Ethiopia and Saudi Arabia – will go through a transformation over the next few decades to become one of the world’s major mining and metal production regions. Therefore, we feel that we are being focused enough, and careful enough, and successful enough to establish a platform there and be a part of that from ground zero.”
