Togo: Government issues license to exploit Ledjoblibo clay deposit

(Togo First) - The government of Togo recently provided Industrie Commerce Agrochimie Investissement (ICA INVEST) a large-scale exploitation license for the clay deposit of Ledjoblibo. The latter is situated at Dankpen (417km from Lomé), in the Kara region.

Exploiting the deposit should improve the State’s mining revenues, create jobs and wealth in the area concerned.

For its part, ICA INVEST, under its social and environmental responsibility, will contribute to local and regional development by building socioeconomic and community infrastructures. This is a key component of the country’s Mining Governance and Development Project (PDGM), to reduce conflicts between mining firms and residents of mining areas (as the firms fail to be socially and environmentally responsible enough).
