JOHANNESBURG (miningweekly.com) – TSX-V-listed GoviEx Uranium was given the gold award for best mining project at the recent Africa Investment Forum and Awards (AIFA) in Paris, France.
The AIFA is an event dedicated to African business opportunities in fields such as mining, energy, infrastructure and real estate. A rigorous judging and selection process was used to decide the winners in a variety of categories.
A jury of experts voted for the best shortlisted projects, based on industry experience, market knowledge and an application form provided by the nominees.
The project was critiqued on its consistency, as well as the quality of the investment and its evolution over the last three years, innovation ability and corporate social responsibility vision.
GoviEx’s nomination form detailed the timeline of the company’s exploration and development of its African uranium properties, and highlighted GoviEx’s community initiatives in Zambia and Niger.
“We are proud to be recognised for our ongoing efforts in Africa. Having successfully acquired a portfolio of high-quality uranium development and exploration projects in Africa, we are now focused on advancing our projects to the development-ready stage so that we are well positioned to take advantage when the uranium market recovers,” said CEO Daniel Major.
