New government to fast track the phosphate fertilizer plant project announced in 2015

(Togo First) - After being on standby since 2015, the phosphate fertilizer plant project should resume. According to Mila Mawunyo Aziable, minister delegate to the President in charge of energy and mines, it is one of the priorities of the country’s new five-year roadmap. 

It should be recalled that the Israeli group Elenilto had secured the permit to carry out this project and exploit carbonates and phosphates. 

Regarding carbonates and phosphates, it is worth noting that the Dangote group has also secured two permits to search for the resource in Togo, in the Zio (Kpomé Apéyémé area) and Vo (Akoumapé) prefectures to be exact. 

The authorities’ desire to search for carbonates and phosphates and make phosphate fertilizers is not the only top priority of the new government, relating to mining. Additionally, exploration and exploitation of other resources will experience a new dynamism. 

Let’s recall that recently, many steps have been taken to improve governance in the mining sector. For example, Togo Invest announced it will develop, with Ica Invest, the Ledjoblibo clay deposit in the Dankpen prefecture (about 90 km from Kara and 420 km north of Lomé). Also, a draft bill initiating the amendment of the mining code was adopted a few months ago; the move aims to improve revenues generated by mining in the country
