my name is Paul Blak I'm a uk born of Caribbean decent .
In 2007 I went to Sierra Leone for the first time with my best friend that I went school with and we went with his mother to her village to look at some gold mining I was interested in getting involved with .
When looking at the different small gold mines in the village I came upon a large what we found out later to be coltan mine with high levels of tantalite ore .
I have secured this mine in my name with all the village elders finger print and I am the only person permitted to mine for coltan there
I wish to extract 200 MT a month from this location ,I have 3 buyers worldwide
Pay for a 50 man work force
Safety equipment ( masks protective clothing )
I am looking for funds to buy machinery as the village has only basic equipment ( pick axes and shovels )
Buy 4 40 ft containers and pay for transportation to the port
A 4x4 to move to and forth
To pay taxes
The current coltan prices have been rising rapidly with the wide demand by electronic companies like apple and Samsung demands so much that ore price @ 30% purity is around 20000 $ a ton
I would prefer 1 investor and could make 14% returns easily
