Afferro Mining Inc. is an iron ore exploration and development company listed on TSX-V and AIM, with just under 1,000km2 of exploration permits in the south of Cameroon, all along proposed infrastructure in a rapidly developing iron ore district. The management has a strong track record in the discovery and development of commercial deposits. 

The flagship project is Nkout. With a large resource already defined, feasibility work points to a strong, economically-viable project. There is also the potential for early cash flow from a small operation at Ntem, which is strategically located close to the Kribi deep water port and the Kribi gas-fired power station. 

Afferro is fully-funded to explore and develop its assets for a number of years with a strong balance sheet
