Asidokona Mining Company after taking over Tolokuma Gold Mine from defunct Petromin Holdings Limited has embarked on a vigorous infrastructure development in and around Tolokuma Gold Mine area.
The major project that Asidokona has taken head on and treated it as priority is the Tolokuma mine to Bakoiudu road link.
Previous operators of TGM has relied too much on air transport to bring in their cargo and materials to operate this mine.
And that along had TGM tagged as the most expensive mine to operate in the whole world. This was purely due to the fact that choppers were engaged in transport personnel and materials to and from TGM.
Thanks to Asidokona Mining Company, engaging of choppers to assist with operations of the mine is now history.
Chiefs and leaders from Mondo, Hidu and Fane with Tolokuma Gold Mine’s CRO and CPG Police held a meeting in Gaiva village to lay out the foundation for the villages to join hands in seeing this road project from Gaiva to Belavista and Popole village.
Meeting at Gaiva for road to pass through, 7chiefs, holding hands…giving access for road.
A very heart felt Thank You to Asidokona Mining Company. And thanks to the people of Auga Dilava for allowing this very vital road to pass through their land [destroying their food gardens and some villages].
Today’s sacrifices are tomorrows many successful returns.
Hats off to the chiefs and leaders and all the people involved in seeing this major development take place.
