Arcelor Mittal Commits Money, Fuel To Nimba, Bassa Ebola Fight
By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

YEKEPA, November 18 (LINA) -The Ebola Task Forces in Nimba and Grand Bassa counties will receive a monthly allotment of US$5,000 and 500 gallons of fuel from iron ore mining firm Arcelor Mittal to support the work.

A press release issued by the company Monday says the assistance is part of the company’s commitment to Liberia in the fight against the Ebola disease.

The company reaffirmed its decision “never to leave Liberia” amid the health emergency.

The release said although Arcelor Mittal has slowed down the expansion of Phase II of its operation owing to the departure of many of its contracted foreign workers for fear of the Ebola disease.

But it noted that the company still remains on track with its target to produce 5 million tons of iron ore in 2014.

It said the company’s Executive President for Mining, Kleber Silva, has visited Liberia about five times this year to assure the Government and people of Liberia of his entity’s commitment not to close down its operations in Liberia.

In September this year, Arcelor Mittal installed a new ship loader at the Port of Buchanan which is capable of loading about 15 million tons of iron ore per annum.
