Tango Acquires 80% Stake in Diamond Mine in Western Liberia

first_imgTango Mining Limited (TSXV:TGV), based in Vancouver, British Columbia, has signed an acquisition agreement to acquire an 80% unencumbered interest in the Mano River Project — a diamond mining concern — from West Mining Ltd (“WML”), located in western Liberia, a release from Globe Newswire has said. The property consists of one recently granted 104.3 square kilometer (“km”) diamond mineral exploration license.Western Liberia is well known for the wide spread occurrence of alluvial diamonds and the known presence of kimberlites.According to the release, Mineral Exploration License MEL7003018 (MEL) was granted on the September 7, 2018 and expires September 7, 2021. Upon completion of the acquisition of MEL, to be completed by 31 October 2018, Tango shall develop an exploration program by the end of Q1 2019 and carry out the work on the Property. This exploration work is expected to consist of geological and structural mapping, sampling and ground geophysical surveys. As consideration for the acquisition of the 80% interest in the Property, the Company shall assume all holding costs and WML will provide full local support and assistance to Tango within the Republic of Liberia.The Property is underlain by Precambrian rocks of Archean age within what is known as the Leo-Man Shield. During the 1960s and early 1970s, a joint program between the Liberian Geological Survey (“LGS”) and the United States Geological Survey (“USGS”), collected a significant amount of topographic, airborne magnetic and radiometric data covering the entire country. This resulted in an excellent digital regional exploration database to support future exploration work.The exploration results importantly identified that the geology of Liberia is very favorable for the occurrence of a wide range of metals and minerals, including gold and diamonds. The LGS and USGS documented approximately 160 kimberlite occurrences in central and western Liberia. Due to the lack of bedrock exposure, access and vegetation, further follow up work was difficult. Since the 1980s, according to the release, exploration for diamond bearing kimberlites has increased significantly and a number of distinct kimberlite clusters have been identified in western Liberia around the Property. This includes Kumgbor, Mano Godua and Weasua and the most important recent discovery, approximately 25 km north of the Property is an area with three identified kimberlites, known as Camp Alpha, which is being explored by a private US funded company.The Property is underlain by favorable basement geology and within a part of Liberia that is well known for the wide spread occurrence of alluvial diamonds and the known presence of kimberlites but there has been little systematic modern exploration.The largest active gold mine in Liberia, called the New Liberty Gold Mine, operated by Avesoro Resources (LSE and TSX listed), is located 45 km south west of the Property and commenced production in 2015.Tango Mining Limited (TGV – TSXV) is a Canadian diversified junior mining company. Tango via its South African subsidiaries hold three thermal coal, metallurgical and processing plant and engineering contracts that process 6.5 Mt of coal per annum, with clientele that include Exxaro. The three projects are located within the Ogies and Highveld coalfields, Mpumalanga Province and Kliprivier coalfield, KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. The Company also holds an interest in the Oena Diamond Mine, an alluvial diamond property, Northern Cape Province, South Africa that has recently recommenced operations under contract to Bluedust Pty. Tango has a continued development plan in place to grow the business using the successful past 19-year business model of the South African operations, an established market presence and its proven successful operational reputation in the coal, base and precious metal and precious stone mining sector in Southern Africa.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Broadcaster reveals that “prominent man in Irish media” could be an “Irish Weinstein”

first_imgPresenter and doctor Ciara Kelly has revealed that a “prominent man in the Irish media” could be an “Irish Weinstein.”It recently broke that over 80 women have reported that film producer Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted them.These allegations, along with the conviction of Tom Humphries, have brought the often silent issue of sexual abuse into public discourse. The horrifying truth is that these abusers cannot be distinguished from normal people – a thesis developed by journalist Fintan O’Toole in his Irish Times piece, ‘We all know a Tom Humphries, even if we don’t know we do.’ The column outlines O’Toole’s harrowing story of how a family friend was outed as a child abuser.“The abuser is still just a friend, a colleague, a neighbour, a family member – a good bloke, a decent skin, a pillar of the community. He does not have the mark of the beast on his forehead,” O’Toole writes. O’Toole also says that he had actually admired Humphries, and at one point believed he was one of the best journalists in Ireland – not a small statement given O’Toole’s distinction in the profession.Dr Kelly shared this article, saying it is “depressingly accurate.” She then revealed that a woman had approached her, alleging that a “prominent” Irish media personality sexually assaulted her.“A woman I don’t know approached me recently about a prominent man in the Irish media.‘He raped me 40 yrs ago. I can still smell him on me,’ she said visibly distressed.“I don’t know this man well – I’ve met him twice though both times in a group setting,” Dr Kelly wrote, adding the hashtag #IrishWeinstein.Dr Kelly then shared her own experience with this man, who pestered her personally over Twitter.“He messaged me immediately after the first meeting by Twitter DM. He was v complimentary “you are v talented we must meet for coffee” he said. I declined something about him made me uneasy. I was polite though I was friendly. Many many messages came I declined other invitations.“I met him again – we were at same event, I spoke to him briefly but didn’t engage – I was with friends. More messages came “who do you think you are? You’re becoming a national joke” late at night followed by “please forgive me I don’t know what came over me” the following morning. “I didn’t reply – it went on for months, I spoke to friends they all had stories they’d heard “Be careful he’s violent – he beat his wife” he had a car back in the day he offer girls lifts home – the passenger door handle was broken – they couldn’t get out.”“I have friend he did same to – he plagued her – ‘be careful he’s supposed to be awful’. The messages – bizarre in their over familiarity stopped eventually and I half forgot.“Then this woman approached me ‘I came still smell him on me – there were lots of us,’ she said.”“And I believed her. I’ve thought a lot about this and am shaking writing these tweets but I believe that women that this man raped her and likely others and I believe he beat his wife and had a car he gave lifts in… so I’m putting this out there…” Dr Kelly now hopes to help others who also may have been abused by this man, saying: “If you think you know who I’m talking about… and if you have been affected please contact me and let’s try to right this,” adding the hashtag #IBelieveYou #IrishWeinstein.Please note: If you have been affected by the contents of this article, the following resources may help you:Donegal Rape Crisis: Visit their webiste on www.donegalrapecrisis.ie, or call them on 074-9128211.
