Kibo Mining - Notes to editors


Kibo Mining is listed on the AIM market in London and the AltX in Johannesburg. The Company is focused on exploration and development of mineral projects in Tanzania, and controls one of Tanzania's largest mineral right portfolios. Tanzania provides a secure and stable operating environment for the mineral resource industry and Kibo Mining therein.


Kibo Mining holds a thermal coal deposit at Rukwa, which has a significant JORC compliant defined resource, and is developing a 250-350MW mouth-of-mine thermal power station with an established management team that includes Standard Bank as Financial Advisor.


Kibo also holds the Haneti Licence on which the latest technical report confirms prospectivity for nickel, PGMs, gold and strategic metals.


The Company also has extensive gold focused interests including Lake Victoria Goldfields and Morogoro projects. At Lake Victoria, the Company has projects with a substantial existing JORC compliant gold resource and is seeking to materially increase this resource through exploration of known extensions to existing mineralisation.


Kibo Mining also holds the Pinewood (coal & uranium) projects.


The Company's projects are located in the established and gold prolific Lake Victoria Goldfields, the emerging goldfields of eastern Tanzania and the Mtwara Corridor in southern Tanzania where the Government has prioritised infrastructural development attracting significant recent investment in coal and uranium. The Company has a positive working relationship with the Tanzanian government at local, regional and national levels and works hard to maintain positive relationships with all communities where company interests are held.  The Company recognises the potential to enhance the quality of life and opportunity for Tanzanian citizens through careful development of its projects.
