Barima Kwarteng & Associates Limited Company registered in July 2008 in Ghana We acquired 3 major concession in Ghana Concessions are not operational Objectives Seek joint venture partners Seek investors for each mining concession Develop full scale mining operation
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE Ghana is well endowed with substantial mineral resources. The mining industry plays a significant role in the country's economy. It is a foreign exchange earner, it is a major source of employment and contributes enormously to the internal economy. The country has had a long history of mining, particularly gold mining. The metal was mined and traded by Ghanaians long before the arrival of Europeans in 1471. Since then gold has continued to be the predominant mineral produced in the country. Ghana runs second to South Africa in gold production in Africa. Other minerals mined on large scale are diamonds, bauxite, manganese and salt.
BARIMA KWARTENG & ASSOCIATES LIMITED SUBSIDIARIES AND THE ROLE THEY PLAY IN THE PROJECTS The three main subsidiaries are: (1).Rocks & Rivers Mining Limited (2)Dpong Limited (3) Rokway Limited Since the Goldfield Concessions are situated in three separate Districts in Ghana far away from each other, these subsidiaries will play the following role: Domeabra / Aboaboso Goldfields operation would be controlled by Rocks & Rivers Mining Limited. Sekyere / Nsuta Goldfields will be controlled by Dpong Limited. Mfensi Goldfields will be controlled by Rokway Limited
Concessions 1 Rocks & Rivers Mining Limited Goldfields Concession covers an Area of 48.71 square kilometers and lies on Asankragua Gold belt in the Amansie District of Ashanti Region of the Republic of Ghana. Oda River Exploration proved a total of 160,000,000 of Auriferous gravels with an average grade of 0.68 gm/m3 or.024 oz /m3, giving a total Reserves of 2,600,400 ounces.
Concessions 2 Dpong Construction Limited Goldfields Concession covers and Area of 140 square kilometers and lies on Ashanti Gold belt in Sekyere Nsuta in the Daboase District in the Western Region of the Republic of Ghana.

The dredging project cost is estimated at (US$10,000,000.00) Ten Million United States Dollars for each Goldfields Concession. To open cast of the shears, or the Hills or the Mountains for both oxide Gold ore and hard rock gold ore also as surface mining. The open cast project cost has been estimated at (US$50,000,000.00) Fifty Million United States Dollars for each Goldfields Concession. To retrench the old abandoned pits (shafts) as the result of 1939 to 1945 second World War. Also to open new pits to sink shafts for both oxides gold ore and hard rock gold ore as underground mining. The project cost has been estimated at (US$500,000,000.00) Five Hundred Million United States Dollars for each Goldfields Concession
