Modern Mining September 2017Our lead article in this issue covers the fascinating Bisie tin project in the DRC’s North Kivu Province, which is being developed by Alphamin Resources Corp. The project, which will exploit the richest – by far – undeveloped tin deposit in the world, is well into the construction phase although erection of the plant will only start next year. The new mine will be an underground operation and will produce nearly 10 000 tonnes of copper a year. The capex involved is US$135 million.
