Mines Ministry Plans Data Generation for Local Govts

The Ministry of Mines and Steel Development (MMSD) is working on data generation for every local government on mineral deposit and how individuals could access such information.

The Minister, Muhammed Sada, who spoke during a media round table in Abuja, revealed plans of the ministry to enter into its medium term programme for the development of the solid minerals sub-sector in the country.

According to him, with the successful completion of its short term programme between 2012 and 2013, the forthcoming medium term policy will further increase minerals production in the country through effective exploration of mineral resources found in almost all Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the Federation.

The ministry is predicting the 2014 to be full of activities among which is the commencement of Bauxite exploration, one of the 44 mineral resources in the country.
