Malawi Government Committed in its Support to Fast Track Development at Britannia’s Iron Ore Project

Britannia Mining Plc, a UK based mining development company [recently merged with U.S. based Micron Enviro Systems (Symbol:MSVS) – pending shareholder ratification] announced today, that Britannia Mining was invited to the Malawi High Commission in London(Wednesday, November 28th, 2012) and met with the newly appointed High Commissioner His Excellency Bernard H Sande.  This meeting was spurred as the Country of Malawi has recently been granted $25 Million from the World Bank to upgrade geological mapping of the entire country.

handshake“We endeavour to work closely with the Government of Malawi to expedite the mapping process in the Nthale region,” stated, Kenneth Roberts, CEO of Britannia Mining and Micron Enviro Systems.  “This mapping could provide Britannia a very important knowledge base that should help fast track our exploration throughout the country.  With enhanced mapping, we will have the ability to make significant strides towards not only defining a ‘Resources Statement’ at our iron ore project but to possibly develop other minerals in the area.”

​The ability to develop other minerals such as gold, lends to the pending merger with Micron considering the geological environments that extend into Malawi.  However, primarily discussed in the meeting with His Excellency, was the development of the Nthale region where Britannia holds a prospecting licence of over 650 sq km (approximately 251 square miles.

During the meeting, Mr. Sande suggested that Nthale, situated just outside of the southern region of Blantyre, is strategically well positioned for economic growth.  As the commercial centre of Malawi, the Blantyre region is being fast promoted as a region that will benefit greatly from its existing logistical routes to the ports ofMozambique and the possible rehabilitation of Malawi’s power plants.

“We will be working diligently with our teams to optimize opportunities stemming the Malawi program for 2013,” concluded Roberts.
