CAR government signs limestone agreement

CAR government signs limestone agreement
06 January 2017

The government of the Central African Republic (CAR) is one step closer to the exploitation of the limestone deposit in Bombassa and Ndimba villages, on the banks of the Oubangui river.

CAR Trade Minister, Hassan Come, and the Head of China Geo Engineering Corp, Wing Wen Hao, signed on 3 January two draft agreements, one relating to the exploitation of cement in the African country. It earmarks the limestone deposit for use in cement production subject to a positive feasibility study.

In 2010, the government authorised the construction of a 4000tpd cement plant in Nzilla by an Indian company but political unrest saw the equipment looted.
