The pilot mining scheme in the Kono area, which was introduced by the Sierra Leone Selection Trust with the approval of the Sierra Leone Government, has now reached the stage when its control can be transferred from the Company to an African contractor. This transfer took place on 1st April. No further details can be given until this second stage of the experiment has had a satisfactory trial.
