Asmara Mining (AMSC), a joint venture 60% owned by the Canadian group, has been awarded licences encompassing four advanced deposits – namely Emba Derho, Adi Nefas, Gupo Gold and Debarwa.
These areas were all incorporated into the feasibility study for Asmara, a proposed copper-zinc-gold mining operation.
