Globe Metals & Mining Secures Permit for Kanyika Niobium Mine

Globe Metals & Mining has secured a large-scale mining licence from the Malawi Government for its USD 250 million Kanyika niobium

Globe Metals & Mining has secured a large-scale mining licence from the Malawi Government for its USD 250 million Kanyika niobium project. The mine is located in central Malawi, approximately 55km north-east of the regional centre of Kasangu. With an anticipated mine life of 23 years, the Kanyika mine will produce high-purity niobium pentoxide and tantalum pentoxide powders. It is expected to produce 260,000 tonnes of niobium and tantalum concentrate, at around 11,300 tonnes per annum

Globe Metals & Mining managing director Alistair Stephens said “It also ushers in a new era for niobium, with Kanyika set to become the first new niobium mine in more than 50 years, subject to financing, off-take and construction.”
