GOLD STAN­DARD

Africa Outlook - - Front Page - En­joy the is­sue!

Teranga Gold is lead­ing golden gen­er­a­tion for West Africa min­ing at present as and Cote d`lvoire suc­cesses help to en­rich the re­gion

Much is made of best-prac­tice and op­er­a­tional ex­cel­lence, but few truly reach these as­pi­ra­tional heights.

How­ever, we’ve man­aged to ex­tract as many as 20 in­dus­try-lead­ing busi­nesses that have man­aged to es­tab­lish such ex­per­tise and re­pute in this month’s edi­tion of Africa Out­look; headed by a busi­ness that has made gold a way of life since its in­cep­tion in

West Africa in 2010.

Teranga Gold Cor­po­ra­tion is a

Cana­dian com­pany in­dige­nously, but this hasn’t stopped the min­ing spe­cial­ist in­gra­ti­at­ing it­self into the fabric of the re­gion via ground­break­ing op­er­a­tions in Sene­gal, Burk­ina Faso and Côte d’Ivoire.

Co-founder, Pres­i­dent and CEO, Richard Young be­lieves the Com­pany’s re­sul­tant influence has formed a win­ning com­bi­na­tion along­side a boom­ing sec­tor; driven by a whole­some and con­certed CSR-led mis­sion state­ment.

“We al­ways see our­selves as a guest in our host countries,” he ex­presses. “We ap­pre­ci­ate the op­por­tu­nity to come in and work and our mis­sion is to make sure that we leave these com­mu­ni­ties bet­ter off than when we found them.”

Teranga Gold not only kicks-off this March edi­tion, but it also head­lines part two of our on­go­ing post-Min­ing Ind­aba re­view of the con­ti­nent’s min­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Com­ple­ment­ing the Com­pany this month is the In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion of South Africa, Metix and Palabora Min­ing Com­pany; while next month it will be Mbuyelo Coal’s turn to cham­pion the in­dus­try.

Tech­nol­ogy, health­care, con­struc­tion, real es­tate, oil & gas, food & drink and man­u­fac­tur­ing are all ac­counted for across the re­main­der of our show­cas­ing as­sort­ment - the likes of Techno Brain Group, SqwidNet / Sig­fox, Ba­hati Ridge De­vel­op­ment, Sa­mani Con­struc­tion, Time Projects and Seaweld En­gi­neer­ing step­ping up to the plate - while our busi­ness travel seg­ment takes us full cir­cle back to West Africa; with a smile.

Gam­bia is af­fec­tion­ately known as the Smil­ing Coast of West Africa, and the small­est coun­try in Africa cer­tainly has plenty to smile about as its tourist and busi­ness ap­peal con­tin­ues to grow at an ex­po­nen­tial rate.

...A poignantly happy note to end on as Africa Out­look cel­e­brates its fifth an­niver­sary.
