The new Tankerili Iron Mine project has always attracted the attention of the Serra government, all sectors of society and peers.

This is not only a new step for Leone Rock Metals Group, but also a new starting point for the iron ore industry in Sierra Leone. The successful entry of high-grade iron powder out of Africa into the international market will greatly promote the economic development of Sierra Leone, improve the level of local employment, optimize the community construction, and benefit the people.

According to the company's five-year development plan, the construction of Phase 2 of the new Tonkolili Iron Ore Project, with an investment of nearly US $200 million and an annual production of 12 million tons, will begin in the first quarter of 2023 and is scheduled to be completed and put into production in early 2024. This means that the company will continue to invest and build in Sierra Leone.
