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.
