Ruhango, Rwanda

Key Overview:

Location

50km southwest of Kigali, mostly in the Ruhango & Muhanga districts

Deposit

3Ts

Project Status

Exploration

Size

450km2

Licence Situation

Some active exploration licenses and artisanal mining license applications

Geology:

Southernly extension of granite from Gatumba mining area, with significant structural complexity and known 3T occurrences.

Project Owner:

This opportunity is promoted by the Rwanda Mines, Petroleum, and Gas Board (RMB). Established in February 2017, RMB is the Rwandan Government body responsible for implementing and advising the government on national policies, laws, and strategy related to mines, petroleum, and gas. It is also mandated to monitor and coordinate the implementation of strategies related to mines, petroleum and gas. In addition to monitoring, it is supposed to carryout research & exploration in geology, mining and petroleum and to disseminate the findings.

Project Status:

Limited work have been carried out, there is need for further exploration such as infill trenching ahead of drill target selection. There are new artisanal mining in the area that offers the opportunity to consolidate licenses and undertake a fast-tracked exploration programme. There are seven active mineral licenses and four applications within this block. Exploration undertaken include Airborne geophysics, recent additional surface geophysics and Geochem, including trenching.

Available Data:

  • Geological maps
  • Reports -PGW(2010), Beak (2013), BSC(2015), B2B(2017), & Bridgeporth (2017)

Infrastructure:

Good Road Access and Power/Water Readily Available.
