Allegations relayed by social networks and a certain press, following the press point announcing the organization by Cameroon of the 3 rd International Conference on Investment in Mines and Exhibition of Cameroon (CIMEC), state the discovery of three cents (300) mineral deposits in Cameroon.The Minister of Mines, Industry and Technological Development wishes to clarify for the good understanding of national and international opinion, that following the summary research carried out by the Capacity Building Project in the Mining Sector (PRECASEM) with the support from the World Bank, at least 300 indices and anomalies could be identified on a set of 13.5 denominations in 1/200 OOOème.Although attracting attention because of their intensity and their lithogeochemical context, the indices and anomalies require additional field work to better characterize them.These preliminary results are intended for the promotion with mining investors who will have to continue the work of detail on larger scales: 1/50 OOOème, 1/25 OOOème or 1/10 OOOème, in order to confirm the existence of possible deposits in areas of the Cameroonian subsoil showing anomalies and indications of mineral substances, as is the rule in the field.
