How To Start Gemstone Mining In Nigeria (free Training: Day- 1) by kudosamass(m): 8:37am On Jul 23



Nigeria is a Country blessed with abundant different types of minerals, especially gemstones. The Country is heavily endowed with some of World's scarce precious stones like Emerald, Sapphire, Tourmaline, Ruby, Beryl, Zircon, Aquamarine, Topaz, Amethyst etc. From the planes of Nisama, Antah, Gidan Waya to the hills of Gwantu in Kaduna State; up to the top of the Mambila Plateau in Taraba State, these treasure gems are graciously deposited beneath the Nation's soil.

The whole of the ancient City of Keffi and its environs are sitting on mind-blowing deposits of multi-color Tourmaline - a deposit that can sustain the development of the whole North Central Nigeria. In Oyo State, and other South West states, the volumes of gem deposits in that axis are simply awesome!

In Sarkin Powa, Niger State, multi-color tourmalines are harvested in tons! These may sound incredible, but they are verifiable facts.
Different colors of high-grade Tourmaline, including bi-color, multi-color, green, blue, red, pink, lemon, Paraiba, lagoon blue, etc, are found in 25 Local Government Areas in Nigeria.
Farmers pick Sapphires in their farms at Nisama and Antah. Hunters at Nike pack kilograms of deep blue Tourmaline in rat holes while on hunting. Women pick Emeralds while weeding their farms at Gwantu Hills. The whole of Gwantu Chiefdom is sitting on top of Emerald deposits!
The Aquamarines of Shaki, Falansa, Ibudo-Are, Akoya, Olode, Ibadan, Godogodo, Kafanchan, Awo, Balogun, Rafin Gabas Hiils, Akwanga, Bakianyi, Jenta, Ijebu Igbo, Igbo Ora, Okene, Isanlu, Ziem, Daura, etc are the finest on Earth.

The Mambilla Plateau in Taraba is the home to large deposits of Sapphires. The huge deposits of Agate at Nguroji and Gembu are yet to be mined. Spinel has just been discovered at Jemaa. The deep multi-color Garnets of Shaki West, Oluyole, Ona Ara, Yagba East, Yagba West, Kanke, Pankshin, Gwaram, Tsafe, Biu and Toro Local Government Areas are simply abandoned!

There are large deposits of Topaz at Kokona, Toro, Dandi, Atisbo, Mangu, etc. There are huge reserves of top-grade Amethyst at Bebeji, Tudun Wada, Bogoro, Sakaba, Kokona, etc. Premium quality deposits of Beryl are found in Ayeda-Ade, Ife-East, Iwo, Kurmi, Takum, Irepodun, Adavi and Ijumu. Different colors of Zircon are found in Barkin-Ladi, Bokkos, Jemaa, Sarduana, Bogoro, and Biu. These deposits are simply unimaginable, mind-blowing! The few examples above represent microcosmic instances of gem deposits spread across the Country. The irony is that apart from the activities of illegal miners, and smugglers, nothing much is happening in this solid mineral sub-sector.

Nigeria, no doubt, is certainly the next destination for international Gemstone dealers, miners, investors, researchers, treasure hunters, and entrepreneurs. As information continues to trickle out about the gigantic magnitude of Gem deposits in the Country, Nigeria is going to be on the center stage of the World Gemstone Trade in the next few years. Smart men and women are already taking up positions.

The one billion dollar question on the lips of every development expert is why on Earth is Nigeria poor, considering the mountainous availability of these great treasures? The answer is squarely situated at the doorstep of Nigerian leaders who are fixated on the mono-economy of petro-wealth, and adamantly or ignorantly refused to diversify the Nigerian Economy. However, the above opinion is beyond the scope of this training.

The training is purposefully structured into seven short courses that include Preliminary / Legal Requirements, locations of gems deposits in Nigeria, Site Acquisition, Hiring of Miners, Setting up the Mining Operation and Management Issues, how to market your gems, royalty rates payable to the government, etc.

The information contained in this training is designed for small and medium-scale miners. Large-scale miners have special training tailored for their individual goals and specifications. It is hoped that these small and medium scale operators would progress to large-scale miners if they put the knowledge gained from this training into action.

In tomorrow's lesson, we are going to look at the Gemstone mining models available to an intending investor, and the legal requirements.
