Company Statement


London Mining is an expanding producer of high specification iron ore for the global steel industry and is focused on identifying, developing and operating sustainable mines.

London Mining commenced sales from the Marampa mine in Sierra Leone in 2012 and expects to reach production capacity of 5Mtpa in 2013. A bankable feasibility study was completed in 2012 on an expansion plan to 9Mtpa and a prefeasibility study was completed in 2011 which shows that Marampa has resources to support a staged expansion to over 16Mtpa.

London Mining has also completed bankable feasibility studies outlining plans for a further 20Mtpa of iron ore production by developing two other mines in Greenland and Saudi Arabia.

Current Operations


London Mining is developing the Marampa mine in Sierra Leone where it commenced production in 2011 and is expanding to produce 5Mtpa by the end of 2013. The resource could support an operation with production of over 16Mtpa. A bankable feasibility study for our Isua project in Greenland completed in 2012 showed the potential for a further 15Mtpa of high quality iron ore production

Marampa, Sierra Leone

Marampa is located 40km from tidewater enabling the use of a low cost flexible logistics solution, it has a resource of almost 1.1 billion tonnes including tailings from previous operations and soft weathered ore which means that a simple low cost process can be employed to produce a premium quality sinter concentrate.

We started production at our Marampa mine in December 2011 and achieved our target of over 1.5Mt of high quality iron ore in 2012. We are expanding production capacity to 5Mtpa over the course of 2013. Marampa has a resource of over 1 billion tonnes of iron ore and we are reviewing ways to further expand production beyond our 5Mtpa base case.


  •     Production of high grade sinter concentrate commenced at the mine in December 2011
  •     Over 1.5Mt of iron ore produced in 2012
  •     Expansion to 5Mtpa in 2013
  •     Bankable feasibility study for an expansion to 9Mtpa was completed in 2012
  •     1 billion tonne resource could support an expansion to over 16Mtpa

Explore our Operations


The Marampa licence is located 120km from Freetown on the outskirts of the town of Lunsar. The licence comprises a mine, power plant and processing plant.  The mine is connected to the Thofeyim River Terminal by a 40km haul road for which London Mining has dedicated commercial use


The Thofeyim river port and stock yard is located on tidewater and operates year round in both the wet and dry seasons. Concentrate is unloaded from haul trucks into the stock yard which has capacity of 300,000t. Concentrate is then loaded onto barges for a 50km journey to the Freetown harbour.

Transhipment operations

Iron ore is transferred from barges to ocean going vessels (OGV) using either the OGV's own loading gear or using one of London Mining's transhipment vessels. The Pride of Marampa floating offshore transhipment platform (FOTP) is able to load ships at a rate of 20,000t per day.

Isua, Greenland

Located 150km north-east of Nuuk and 110km from a proposed deep seawater port, Isua will produce a premium quality 70% Fe pellet feed concentrate with low impurities and benefits from its position in the warmer south-west corner of Greenland which allows for year round shipping. A bankable feasibility study has been completed for a 15Mtpa operation based on a resource of over 1.1 billion tonnes.


  • Project to produce 15Mtpa premium blast furnace pellet feed with low impurities
  • BFS shows project NPV of USD 1.76 billion with a project IRR of 18.7% on a 10 year initial operation with 3.5 year payback
  • JORC classified Mineral Resource of 1107Mt with internally diluted grade of 32.6% Fe
  • Additional mineralisation potential of between 950Mt and 1,500Mt including a high grade hematite target of between 150Mt and 300Mt
  • Permitting process expected to be complete in 2013


Project Location


About Isua

The Isua project will comprises of a mine, processing plant and 105km concentrate pipeline which connects the plant to a deepwater port capable of year round loading of 250,000t ships

Wadi Sawawin, Saudi Arabia

The Wadi Sawawin iron ore deposits were discovered in 1953 and during the following 40 years were investigated by various entities, principally British Steel, between 1975 and 1993. The British Steel work included three drilling campaigns, two exploration adits, a quarry and a pilot plant. London Mining holds a free carried 25% interest in the project and in 2010 completed a bankable feasibility study on a 5Mtpa mine, pellet plant and port.

Wadi Sawawin is of strategic and economic importance to Saudi Arabia as it will provide a domestic source of Direct Reduction (“DR”) pellets for use in the DRI steel plants which account for 90% of steel production in the Middle East and North African region. The location of Wadi Sawawin will provide it with a competitive advantage over competing Brazilian and European supply through reduced freight rates from its deep water port in the Red Sea and access to low cost Saudi Arabian energy. In addition the project will assist in the programme of diversification of the economy which is an important element of Saudi Arabian government policy and as a consequence the project is expected to benefit from low cost state sponsored funding.

The 2010 bankable study completed by London Mining estimated total capital expenditure (including power and desalination plant) of USD 1.9 billion for a 5Mtpa mine, processing plant and deepwater port with operating costs of less than USD 50/t pellets.

The current indicated JORC resource of 248Mt grading 39.8% Fe is sufficient for a mine life of 21 years at the run rate of 5Mtpa. In addition, London Mining has inferred resources of 134Mt grading 39.2% Fe (as well as further exploration targets) which may provide the basis for an extension of the mine life at 5Mtpa by over 10 years or an expansion to 10Mtpa. London Mining will continue to undertake sufficient exploration to maintain the licences in good standing until funding is secured. The current resource is based entirely within the Western exploration licence and is contiguous with the current exploration licence.


  • Bankable feasibility study completed for 5Mtpa mine, pellet plant and port
  • Product will be a high quality DR “direct reduction” pellet which is ideal for sale into the Middle East for use in DRI steel plants
  • London Mining has a free carried interest of 25% in the project
  • The resource of almost 400Mt would support an expansion to 10Mtpa
