Over 70 firms to explore available mineral resources in Katsina state

0

Over 70 companies have obtained licenses for the exploration and mining of mineral resources available in Katsina, Governor Aminu Masari has said. Daily trust report

Speaking at the inauguration of board of the state exploration and mining company, Masari said the state was blessed with over 35 different types of mineral resources across its 34 LGAs.

Masari said the dwindling oil revenue had forced governments all over the world to look inwards by diversifying its revenue base to address drop in revenue.

He attributed the challenges in the sector to inadequate geoscince data to attract investment, unchecked artisanal mining activity, noting that the administration was poised to tackle the shortcomings by sourcing persons with knowledge in the sector to reposition it.

In his remarks, the state Commissioner of Resource Development, Mustapha Bello, said government had released about N13m for a prospective review of over 20 identified locations where such minerals were deposited.
