Strategic Cooperation between DMT and MUTAG to jointly implement Turnkey Water Treatment Plants for industrial Users

The age of "survival of the fittest" is over - the future will be won by companies that cooperate with each other, according to the trend monitor of the German Future Institute. The international engineering and consulting company DMT GmbH und Co. KG has been working on this since 1737, enabling joint progress in complex engineering assignments across the world. A new milestone is the recently signed strategic cooperation with MUTAG, the leading specialist in the field of biological wastewater treatment from Chemnitz, by signing a cooperation agreement. The aim of the cooperation is to jointly implement turnkey wastewater treatment projects for the industrial sector worldwide. To this end, both companies offer individual, customised solutions that are particularly suitable for technologically demanding applications.

Akobo’s hits visible Gold at new Record Depth


Akobo Minerals today announced that it has intersected visible gold at 282 metres vertical depth, as well as seeing signs of further potential gold mineralisation in several sections along this latest hole. All indicators point to a belief that the Segele mine can be sustained for much longer than previously envisaged.

The previous deepest intersection of gold mineralisation was at 239 metres vertical depth. This new intersection is part of an ambitious wildcat resource extension hole and demonstrates that the Segele gold mineralisation is now greater than 400m ‘down plunge’ from the surface outcrops. In essence, this means that there seems to be more gold down to much greater levels than previously believed. 

The success of this hole is testament to the excellent predictive skills and structural understanding developed by the company’s geologists. Their competence is allowing detailed prediction of the gold mineralisation for additional discoveries and will be critical to successful production. 

Jørgen Evjen, CEO, Akobo Minerals, stated: “These latest results represent a remarkable success for us. And while this gives us good reason to be excited about the production potential of the Segele mine, equally important is the proof that we understand the local mineralization environment. Our geology team has shown that it can use advanced structural techniques to hit gold mineralization depths never before seen in Southwestern Ethiopia and I believe that we can be confident of considerable success in the future.”  

Akobo’s mine development activities are based on its scoping study which envisages a 27-month mine life based purely on the first resource estimate from April 2021 determined by independent mining consultants, SRK. As announced previously, since the release of the scoping study, in addition to the visible gold observations the company has encountered bonanza grade intersections and numerous occurrences of potential host rocks which are demonstrably down-dip from the resource estimate.  

The combination of the bonanza grade intersections, host rocks and visible gold is in-line with the general plunge of the mineralization as seen in the resource model. These indicators all point to a belief that the Segele mine can be sustained for much longer than previously envisaged.  

An updated resource estimate for Segele is expected to be released by end of Q1 and will incorporate as much of the latest drill hole data as possible. The size of the resource estimate increase will be dependent on the estimation process and assay grades, width and thickness, in addition to down-plunge length. However, the result from SEDD99 will not be included in the next mineral resource update as additional drilling will be needed to support an understanding of the mineralization geometry.

Environmental Social Governance (ESG) – the Future in MiningEnvironmental Social Governance (ESG) – the Future in Mining

A raw materials turnaround in the sense of uniformly higher international standards in terms of environmental protection, social and technological development (Environmental Social Governance) (ESG) will become the future guideline in mining. The most urgent task for the coming years is to implement both issues, raw material security and ESG conformity, at the same time. This requires above all investments in the exploration, production, processing and refining of raw materials. In addition, technical innovations are needed to expand existing mining capacities and make them as ESG-compliant as possible. At bauma 2022, technological solutions and specialist expertise will be presented....
