NANJING: The East China Mineral Exploration and Development Bureau (ECE) has committed itself to working with the Namibian Government on the construction of a multi-billion dollar industrial complex near Opuwo in the Kunene Region.
Plans for the establishment of the complex were made after the Namibia East China Non-Ferrous Investment mining company recently announced that a deposit of 2.37 billion tonnes of iron ore was discovered at Orumana village, about 30 kilometres south of Opuwo.
ECE Director-General Shao Yi told Namibia’s Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Tjekero Tweya during a meeting at the ECE head office in Nanjing on Wednesday that the complex would cater for iron ore mining and steel production.
Shao indicated that the industrial park will be supported by related industries, including section bar processing, machinery, trade, logistics and hostels.
The deposit was discovered and explored by ECE experts, which has about 70 members carrying out exploration activities in Namibia.
