Mining Firm Building Houses To Relocate Residents

By D. Ignatius Roberts, LINA Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, March 16 (LINA) -The Management of Aureus, a gold mining company in Grand Cape Mount County,  is constructing more than 200 housing units to relocate community dwellers in areas of its operation.

This was disclosed by the company’s Health and Safety Manager, Erickson T. Brown, in an interview with the Liberia News Agency when the County Superintendent and a delegation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs paid a courtesy call on the company’s management.

Mr. Brown also disclosed that management has reached a decision to sponsor the exhumation of over 200 bodies and relocate them to a new grave site under a special project.

He told LINA that the management has decided to undertake the project because the affected towns, villages and the graveyard are sitting on mineral deposits.

He said the relocation camp for the citizens, which is nearing completion, will also have a school, health center, vocational training center, church and mosque for the citizens.

He added that Aureus management is also sponsoring the construction of housing units for residents of the nearby area.

Mr. Brown revealed that the company has provided job opportunities for both skilled and unskilled Liberians in an effort to empower them economically.

Meanwhile, Grand Cape Mount County Superintendent, Imam Mohammed A. Paasewe, has expressed gratitude to the management for their decision to invest in the county.
