One of the world’s largest steel producing companies, ArcelorMittal, announced that it is now completing engineering phase of a feasibility study to identify the optimal concentration solution for utilizing the resources at Tokadeh, one of its mining sites in Nimba County, Liberia. Mt Tokadeh is next to Mountain Tokade in the same county. As a result of this study, which would lead to full operations of the steel giant, hundreds of Liberians would be added to its staff.

ArcelorMittal Liberia’s spokesperson, said that “ArcelorMittal Liberia is now completing the engineering phase of a feasibility study to identify the optimal concentration solution for utilizing the resources at Tokadeh. The study is expected to be completed by mid-2019. Assuming approvals, the project would create increased employment for Liberians in addition to other direct and indirect benefits for the people of Liberia.”

This spokesperson further disclosed that a high level team of senior management executives are scheduled to meet with the Liberian government on Wednesday, April 17, for discussions.

In May 2018, ArcelorMittal announced that it has started work on a feasibility study at the Tokadeh iron ore mine. ArcelorMittal said that they had commissioned the study in order to identify an optimal concentration solution for utilizing the mine’s lower-grade resources through the study. The development followed the company’s commencement of mining activities at the Gangra direct shipping ore deposit. ArcelorMittal had originally planned a Phase II expansion at Tokadeh in order to achieve the production of 15 million tonnes per annum of concentrated sinter fine ore.
