Popo-Cee-Popo Global Investment Ltd., a wholly-owned Ghanaian mining support services provider is fast becoming a leader in the industry, well-positioned to contribute to Ghana’s mining support services hub agenda.
The dynamism, versatility and innovative solutions provided by the company has etched its place as one of the best in providing mining support services to small-scale and large mining corporations across the country and beyond.
Despite the efforts to close the gap in providing mining inputs for use by mining corporations, as evidenced by the proliferation of mining support services over the years, the mining sector continues to import more than 80 percent of inputs from abroad which cost the country more than US$1 billion.
Foreign suppliers have typically provided specialized inputs that have not been available in Ghana such as spares from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to mining companies. As a result, huge sums of monies leak out of the sector.
Meanwhile, Ghana has a competitive advantage to produce these inputs and supply them since it is the biggest gold producer on the continent and the seventh largest globally.
To solve this problem, the Ghana Chamber of Mines recently announced its intention to develop a framework for positioning Ghana as the hub of mining support services in the sub-region.
Thus, having identified this gap in the mining services industry, Popo-Cee-Popo Global Investment Limited is positioning itself to take advantage and offer sophisticated inputs and deliverables that meet world-class standards and are highly efficient for use by mining companies.
This is exemplified in the company’s recent introduction of a new mercury and cyanide free ANT Extractor and Concentrator and the Mini Trommel to serve the artisanal and small scale gold mining companies (ASGMs). These equipment provide up to 99.9 per cent of gold recovery and changing the landscape of artisanal and small scale gold mining.
Consequently, this makes it the first in the sub-region to have such an effective mining equipment that is mercury and cyanide free for artisanal and small scale gold mining.
Having more than 15 years of experience, Popo-Cee-Popo Global Investment Ltd provides safe and reliable exploration, mine planning and production services. The company has a proven track record of delivering in some of the toughest environments in Ghana with one of the largest mining fleets in Ghana.
Popo-Cee-Popo Global Investment Limited provides drilling, blasting, and other geotechnical services as well as end-to-end services from mine planning, exploration to mine development, production and reclamation. Also, the company has equipment rental, hiring and leasing services with well-maintained earthmoving machines, trucks and equipment.
Additionally, the company provides capital investment and financing for small and medium scale mining projects including the provision of funds for the right equipment for projects. It is also into mineral brokerage and gold trading and exports. The company buys and sells gold bars from 85 per cent up.
By providing mining consulting services, Popo-Cee-Popo Global considers a wide range of areas that are required in all stages of a project’s lifecycle. This ranges from preliminary assessment to scoping, pre-feasibility, feasibility and detail engineering for open pit and underground mines.
With these varied mining services, the company is moving towards the top echelon among the many mining support service companies in the country and the sub-region at large.
