Mozambique Government Selects French Company SGS for Mineral Inspection

The French company SGS has won the international tender to control the quantities, prices and specifications of minerals extracted and exported from Mozambique, the Mozambican government announced today.

The company “will ensure the verification of specifications, prices and quantities of mining products,” said the Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance, Amílcar Tivane, in statements to Lusa.

SGS is already on the ground in order to draw up an action plan and has signed a three-year contract with the Mozambican authorities, pending approval from the Administrative Court, Mr Tivane continued.

“SGS is a company with extensive experience and “international calibre” in the sector,” said the Deputy Minister of Economy and Finance.

Amílcar Tivane defended the need for the monthly reports presented by companies in the mining sector to be in line with the rules for controlling quantities, specificities and prices.

The SGS intervention is part of the Mozambican government’s commitment to remedy the shortcomings in the control of minerals extracted and exported from the African country, said Tivane.

“There is insufficient information in some reports,” he said, pointing out that “Mozambique is rich in natural resources and should take greater advantage of this.”
