Projects / South Sudan
The mining industry of South Sudan started operating from the time South Sudan became a regional government of Sudan in 2005. Its inheritance was a well developed petroleum industry with an extensive network of pipelines passing through Sudan. With the 2012 New Mining Act, the interest in non-fuel minerals especially gold, has increased tremendously. Today it is an established fact that South Sudan has very favourable geologic formations, including couple of greenstone belts with world class deposits.
Toya Gold currently has 5 active assets in the Central and Eastern Equatoria states of South Sudan covering 11.360 km². A study has been undertaken which show significant potential for gold and the gold mineralisation, satellite imagery combined with available geological maps and historical reports have been used to determine the assets targeted. The onsite works will start by the beginning of 2018.
