‘Putu Remains Committed to MDA’

first_imgThe management of the Putu Iron Ore Mining Company (PIOM) has reassured the government and people of Liberia that it remains committed to the implementation of the Mineral Development Agreement (MDA) it signed with government.The PIOM management stated that although in the last few months its activities were reduced it did not close down its operations, as had been rumored, according to a press release issued yesterday.The scale down in operations, according to the company’s CEO Christian Masurenko, was attributed to the Ebola outbreak. He pledged that PIOM will continue to meet its obligations to government and the communities within its concession area.Mr. Masurenko said he was giving the assurance because the scale-down in the company’s operations in the last few months has been “misinterpreted as closure.”The PIOM CEO stressed that unforeseen circumstances have negatively impacted the company’s operations resulting in delays in the implementation of its ventures.The press release made specific reference to the Ebola outbreak which it said continues to hamper normal working activities in the country, and also the steep decline in the world market price for iron ore which is impacting iron ore investments not only in Liberia but worldwide.With the level of progress attained in combating the EVD, coupled with the Liberian government’s efforts to stimulate the economy in particular, the mining sector, PIOM anticipates resuming operations in the shortest possible time, said the press statement.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Standing on top of the hill next to the broken pump house, you can smell the terrible stench being carried by the wind. Imagine the residents of the area having to tolerate this foul odour on a daily basis? They probably don’t even open their windows unless they absolutely have to.

In the morning, from about 5am to 7am, and yet again from 6pm onwards at night, the situation gets worse due to the volume of people at their houses.
