DRC authorities move to enhance effectiveness in the mining sector
 
02:47
Authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo have announced changes in the mining industry aimed at improving conditions for the final users of the country's minerals. One of them is about the establishment of economic zones around the country. The announcement was made at a mining conference in the DRC's Southwestern province of Lua-laba. It comes on the heels of a new mining code that raised taxes for mining firms. CGTN's Chris Ocam-ringa has that report.

Shinkolobwe Uranium*Manhattan Project*Katanga Province*Democratic Republic of the Congo.
 
08:17
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katanga_Province https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkolobwe Shinkolobwe is the name of a town and a mine in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), located near the larger town of Likasi and about 120 miles northwest of Lubumbashi. Around 15,000 people live in the town. The mine produced uranium ore for the Manhattan Project. It was officially closed in 2004. The mineral deposit was discovered in 1915 by Robert Rich Sharp (1881-1958). The mine was worked from 1921 onwards. Uranium-bearing ore was initially exported to Belgium for the extraction of radium. The United States used Shinkolobwe's uranium resources to supply the Manhattan Project to construct the atomic bomb in World War II. Edgar Sengier, then director of Union Minière du Haut Katanga, had stockpiled 1,200 tonnes of uranium ore in a warehouse on Staten Island, New York. This ore and an additional 3,000 tonnes of ore stored above-ground at the mine was purchased by Colonel Ken Nichols for use in the project. Nichols wrote: Our best source, the Shinkolobwe mine, represented a freak occurrence in nature. It contained a tremendously rich lode of uranium pitchblende. Nothing like it has ever again been found. The ore already in the United States contained 65 percent U3O8, while the pitchblende aboveground in the Congo amounted to a thousand tons of 65 percent ore, and the waste piles of ore contained two thousand tons of 20 percent U3O8. To illustrate the uniqueness of Sengier’s stockpile, after the war the MED and the AEC considered ore containing three-tenths of 1 percent as a good find. Without Sengier’s foresight in stockpiling ore in the United States and aboveground in Africa, we simply would not have had the amounts of uranium needed to justify building the large separation plants and the plutonium reactors. The mine was closed in 1939 and flooded. The US Army sent a squad from its Corps of Engineers to reopen the mine, expand the aerodromes in Léopoldville (now Kinshasa and Elizabethville (now Lubumbashi), and extend the port at Matadi, on the Congo River. Between 1942 and 1944, about 30,000 tons of uranium ore were sold to the US Army. On July 18, 2006 the DRC Sanctions Committee, (United Nations Security Council Committee Established Pursuant to Resolution 1533 (2004), to give it its full name) released a report dated June 15, 2006, which stated that artisanal mining for various minerals continues at the Shinkolobwe mine: 149. During an investigation into alleged smuggling of radioactive materials, the Group of Experts has learned that such incidents are far more frequent than assumed. According to Congolese experts on radioactive materials, organs of State security have, during the past six years, confiscated over 50 cases containing uranium or cesium in and around Kinshasa. The last significant incident occurred in March 2004 when two containers with over 100 kilograms of stable uranium-238 and uranium-235 were secured. American interest in the Shinkolobwe mine for the purpose of developing of nuclear weapons led to the implementation of extensive security measures. Shinkolobwe's location was removed from maps and journalists were denied access to the mine and official information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krishnaswamy_Sundarji In 1963 he served in the UN mission in the Congo, where he was chief of staff of the Katanga command and was mentioned in dispatches for his gallantry. It was about this time when India had tested its own Nuclear bomb. General Sundarji had long been an advocate of a nuclear policy, and now emerged as an articulate military spokesman for nuclear policy. In 1984, he led Operation Blue Star, intended to evict Sikh extremists who had occupied the Golden temple in Amritsar. The Indian army marched into the gurudawara with their boots off. He was to later say - "We went inside with humility in our hearts and prayers on our lips". According to his wife, Sundarji emerged a changed man after this operation. In 1986, he was appointed the Chief of Army Staff. After taking over as the Army Chief, he wrote a letter to his soldiers warning of deteriorating standards, and the evil of sycophancy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9D6coHoVaU On August 9, 2006 the Sunday Times published a report claiming that Iran was seeking to import "bomb-making uranium" from the Shinkolobwe mine., quoting the UN report of July 18, 2006. This report gives "Tanzanian customs officials" as its sole source for their claim that the uranium was destined for processing in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan via the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_Abbas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushehr https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushehr_Nuclear_Power_Plant https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W88

Secret Mining in the Congo (Intl)
 
01:58
USA, EU & UK urged: 'keep your aid but stop the raid' Professor Willy Vangu, International Spokesperson for the UDPS - DRC Opposition Party It is absurd that a country with more forests than Brazil, more minerals than Australia, more oil than Norway and more hydro-power potential than Finland can be home to over 52 million people (70 per cent of the population) who live on less than 80 pence a day. The Democratic Republic of Congo is a country with vast natural wealth and it suffers this paradox. Secretive mining deals left unchecked by the international community are a major factor in the Congolese people's enduring misery. Why does this happen? Who is behind it? Why does it matter to the UK and what can we do to stop it? Using evidence gathered from the Congo, and from off shore tax havens, Professor Willy Vangu, will explain to the world over the next few weeks the detailed workings behind BVI shell companies. Failure of the UK and the IMF to enforce existing transparency obligations on the DRC Government is wasting taxpayers' money and political capital. As a result, the opposition party of the DRC is calling on aid and loans direct to the DRC Government to be cancelled in return for renewed focus on tackling secretive mining deals, which keep the Congolese people poor and make a few within the DRC very wealthy. The background: In December 2011 a UK Member of Parliament released details of 59 shell companies, mostly registered in the British Virgin Islands and overseen by a Gibraltar trust, that have been involved in purchasing DRC mineral and oil assets. Backed by Global Witness, the MP's analysis of just four of these transactions -- all occurring in the last two years - showed a loss to the Congolese people of over $5.5 billion. This was supposed to change as part of a 2009 loan from the International Monetary Fund. This $551 million loan was conditional upon the DRC government implementing broad transparency and governance reforms in the mining sector: mining contracts were to be published, along with the details of those individuals who are behind companies that own mineral assets and state assets would be put up for public tender. None of this has happened, and the IMF has turned a blind eye. All four of the transactions resulting in the $5.5 billion loss -- 10 times the amount of the IMF loan - occurred after the IMF loan was made. That is, at the time when the IMF was supposed to be closely monitoring the DRC government's promised reforms. Cancellation of aid and loans to the DRC Government: Professor Vangu said recently, "UK Ministers should work to suspend all direct aid and loans to the Congolese government through the IMF and World Bank until it has fully complied with its obligations to the IMF. We are calling on all governments to suspend direct support of the DRC Government, including through futile transparency programmes like PROmines. UK Ministers should also seek guarantees from the DRC that secret sales of state assets to offshore 'shell' companies will be properly investigated." Furthermore, summon the will to clamp down on matters connected to your jurisdiction. This will be cheaper for the British taxpayer and more beneficial to the Congolese people than continuing to pour aid into an unaccountable government. In short, keep your aid but help end the raid. The significant impact it will make to improve the lives of the Congolese is not to be underestimated." Conservative MP and member of the International Development Select Committee, Pauline Latham has called for the suspension of direct loans to the DRC government through the IMF. She has said, "Until the IMF start enforcing the transparency caveats attached to their massive loan to the DRC Government, British taxpayers should stop their support of this regime."

Impoverished workers face dangerous conditions and little pay in DRC mines
 
03:49
(22 Aug 2012) The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to vote on Wednesday on the final version of US legislation on 'conflict minerals', precious minerals used to finance local wars like the 'blood diamonds' of West Africa. The Frank-Dodds Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of July 2010 requires American companies using materials vital to modern high-tech industries to reveal their supply chains. The rules governing how companies should comply with its Clause 1502 on conflict minerals - due-diligence regulations to be set by the SEC - have still not been defined. With the high-tech industry now under pressure from consumers, many companies have just stopped buying from areas like the Eastern Congo rather than face accusations, unfounded or otherwise, of using conflict minerals. And the mining communities of Eastern Congo blame that legislation for an economic disaster. The small town of Nyabibwe lies on the shores of Lake Kivu, around 60km (37 miles) to the south west of Goma in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. It's a mining town which once prospered thanks to the abundant minerals crucial to the world economy that were found in the nearby hills. But while local shops still offer boots and shovels, but no one has bought mining equipment for months. The nearby government tin mine tells a sad story. Only a handful of workers remain, idly crushing stones to extract cassiterite, the primary ore of tin. Like many Congolese mines, activity has come to a standstill over the past two years and the miners blame the US legislation. They keep on working but hardly make a living. Mining is not mechanised and artisanal miners carve holes in hard rocks using shovels and pickaxes. The wells and tunnels that perforate Nyabibwe's mountain are narrow and pitch black; air is scarce and there is always the threat of being buried in a landslide. The price of tin from has plunged to an amount almost not worth working for. The mine used to attract more than 1,000 miners, the backbone of the economy. Today, only a few hundred remain. Given the corrupt and freewheeling world that makes up Congo's lucrative mining sector, with many mines controlled by armed groups, from foreign rebels and local militias to the Congolese army, the immediate future looks bleak. Back-to-back civil wars killed an estimated 5 million people in Congo in the 1990s. The fighting deteriorated into a greedy scramble for Congo's massive mineral wealth that drew in the armies of eight African nations. While the conflict ended in the rest of this sprawling nation in 2002, armed groups drawing on the underground wealth have continued to operate in the mineral-rich east of the country. Miners say they are not opposed to the law, but resent the 'unforseen consequences'. In fact many appreciate the fact that fraud and militarisation are being tackled. A recent Enough Project investigation said the Dodd-Frank Act has led to a 65 percent drop in armed groups' profits from the mineral trade. Rebel groups like the FDLR, or the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, seen here in rare footage obtained by the Associated Press, are at the heart of the never-ending violence in eastern Congo. These rebels are led by Rwandan Hutus, the instigators of Rwanda's genocide who escaped over the border. From here they continue to terrorise the population and vie for the control of natural resources worth millions of dollars. Congo's unpoliced and porous borders allow minerals to be easily smuggled into Rwanda and injected into a supposedly "clean" supply chain there.

Fallen copper prices affecting jobs in DRC mines

We have also reduced the staff which was at 250, now we are only 200," said Dieudonne Kisimba Selemani, an administrator of the Congo Steel Mills company. Since the slump of metal prices in 2015, the economy of the world's fi… READ MORE : http://www.africanews.com/2016/05/26/fallen-copper-prices-affecting-jobs-in-drc-mines Africanews is a new pan-African media pioneering multilingual and independent news telling expertise in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Congo minister declines to say whether new mining code signed into law CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - The Minister of Mines for Democratic Republic of Congo, Martin Kabwelulu, declined on Wednesday to say whether President Joseph Kabila had signed a new mining code into law that the industry opposes because it will raise royalties and taxes. The new code, which parliament approved late last month, could see royalties on cobalt, a vital component in electric car batteries, increase five-fold to 10 percent.

Is our appetite for the latest gadgets fuelling rebel fighting in the Congo - threatening the survival of central Africa’s great gorillas? On the inside of many devices like mobile phones and laptops is the mineral ‘Coltan’, which has made our gadgets smaller and more complex. In the mineral-rich Congo, armed militia watch over the children digging this mineral from the ground. “"The government only pretends to help us"” says one miner, who pays a government official just to work. “"The Congo is a shifting sands of various militia, the largest of which is the Congolese state itself”," explains an expert on blood minerals. Yet the miners depend on the little they get from mining to survive. Electronic giants like Apple now claim they will no longer use Coltan from this area but experts are convinced the militias will “smuggle it onto the market” regardless. For local miners, the move away from African minerals is “just another way of penalising Africans”. Coltan fuels a conflict, which has seen national parks become war zones, gorillas killed for meat and hundreds of houses set on fire in turf wars over mineral territory. Yet it also feeds 400,000 petty traders. Why did it take a mobile phone to make us appreciate the injustice in the Congo?

The abundance of internationally valued minerals has however failed to bring any kind of prosperity. It began with colonial exploitation of the land and its people and continued in bloody civil war, the Congolese have harvested nothing from their country’s natural riches but misery and poverty.

This would be the first initiative of its kind in Congo, where up to 2 million people mine with rudimentary tools, most illegally. MGM expects to start buying from local artisanal miners in January and pour its first gold early next year. However, underlying challenges in the industry persists.
