StockMarketWire.com – Amara Mining has begun trucking material from its Sega gold project in Burkina Faso to the neighbouring processing plant at its Kalsaka gold mine.
Sega is approximately 20km from Kalsaka and was acquired by Amara from Orezone Gold Corporation in the second quarter of 2012.
Since then, Amara has successfully permitted the project, receiving the mining licence on 18 July 2013.
The first material from Sega reached Kalsaka yesterday (16 September).
The average head grade of the Sega material is 2.41g/t, a 113% increase on the head grade achieved from the Kalsaka ore in H1 2013 (1.13g/t.
Chief executive Peter Spivey said: “With the commencement of trucking, we are just days away from processing the first Sega material and stacking it on the heap leach pads at Kalsaka.
“We are firmly on track to deliver on our promise of successfully integrating the two projects and this is expected to strengthen production and reduce costs, as a result of the higher head grade of the Sega material.
“Production will continue in Burkina Faso in the near term and we remain focused on our strategy of using our cash flow to underpin our growth assets.”

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) – The owner of a southwestern Illinois trucking business faces up to 50 years in federal prison after being convicted of filing false paperwork.
Federal jurors in East St. Louis found 40-year-old William “Pat” Clark of Worden guilty of 10 felony counts of making a false statement on Friday. The trial lasted four days.
Authorities say that as owner of Clark Trucking and Excavation in East St. Louis, Clark illegally profited from submitting bogus paperwork. The documents claimed he paid required prevailing wages to his employees on a federally funded freeway project.
Federal prosecutors say Clark cheated his employees by paying only about $15 per hour, rather than the required $35.45 per hour.
Clark also faces up to $2.5 million in fines when he’s sentenced Jan. 24.

Chairman of the second governing council of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN), Mr. Hakeem Olanrewaju, spoke with John Iwori on the governing council s dissolution and the way forward for the regulatory body, among other issues in the maritime sector of the economy. Excerpts:
Can I have an insight into your background?
I am from Abeokuta in Ogun State. I was born on March 9, 1961. I attended Ebenezer Grammar School, Abeokuta where I obtained my West African School Certificate (WASC) in 1981. I have attended seminars and training workshops in Nigeria and overseas. I have over 24 years of outstanding experience in providing fiscal, strategic and operations leadership. I excel in uniquely challenging situations while contributing to the growth and development of the freight forwarding industry.
I am a member of the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) Zurich, Switzerland; The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA,) United States of America (USA); World Cargo Alliance Family of Logistics Networks (WCA); Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Nigeria; Lagos Lawn Tennis Club and the Nigeria Institute of Shipping (NIS). I was the elected first Vice-Chairman of Governing Council of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN) from 2008 to 2010. From 2010 till last year, I was second elected Chairman of CRFFN. I am presently the Managing Director of Talod Oceanair Freight Limited.
What were you doing before rise to your present position as the Managing Director/CEO of the firm?
I was the Operations Manager of the firm from 1991 to 1996.
What marks you and your firm out in the freight forwarding business in the country?
My firm Talod, explored areas most forwarders ignored, especially in the aspect of cargo consolidation and project cargo logistics provider.
Some individuals and firms specialise in the clearing and forwarding of some special cargoes and services. Is that applicable to your firm and if yes, why?
Yes, just as noted earlier, at a time in our corporate existence and operation, we chose to look beyond pursuing Bill of lading for imported vehicles/containerised importation for bulk cargo clearance and any commercial services that will add value to our operations.
As the immediate past Chairman, Governing Council, CRFFN, what will you consider as the challenges you met on ground?
As the immediate governing council chairman of CRFFN, the things I considered as major challenges are the negative image of forwarders; the attitude and character of the forwarders, most forwarders are self-made professionals with different ideology and background; forwarders speaking in different voices and never united to pursue their course.
Other challenges were the constraint posed by inadequate funding; the challenges posed by the number of forwarders that require training as available statistics shows that a higher percentage of the forwarders are school certificate holders, as well as the task of uniting the freight forwarding associations.
How did you tackle these challenges?
With God helping me, I embarked on consultations within and outside. I pursued training and infrastructural development with vigour besides organising forum for international exchange of expertise, so as to expose members to appreciating their profession as a noble one. Concerted efforts were channeled towards unifying the forwarders.
What will you consider as your major achievements while in office?
My major achievements include but are not limited to the successful convocation of registration, verification and induction of thousands of forwarders; successful registration of CRFFN/hosting of Nigeria flag at FIATA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland; accreditation of five registered associations; and the successful hosting and conclusion of trained the trainee of FIATA Diploma programme.
Others are the accreditation in FIATA to conduct Diploma in freight forwarding in Nigeria; expansion of structures and creation of employments job opportunities; the constitution and securing of joint ministerial approval of the CRFFN enforcement team.
Early last month, you convened a meeting of all practising freight forwarders in CRFFN at a hotel in Apapa, Lagos. What informed the basis for convening the meeting?
You will recall that, before the tenure of the governing council members wound up, there was internal disagreement that ensued between the governing council members and the leadership of the association over the transaction fee for implementation. Understanding that some of these issues that brought about misunderstanding were the needed tonic that will propel us to the next level, therefore believing that this teething problem is common to growth and having disagreed, I see need for us to come back and agree to sort out differences for the interest of our profession.
My interest here is borne out of the fact that as a professional freight forwarder, I have travelled to so many countries of the world, 80 per cent of these journeys are related to freight forwarding meetings and of cargo interest and networking. This trip did not only afford me the opportunity to interact and exchange expertise with other freight forwarders in other clime, it exposed me towards appreciating the economic, social and political roles and significant of a forwarder in the maritime industry.
Comparably, I realised that our country had the best opportunity to participate and control a major share in the movement of global trade. Looking at the provisions of the CRFFN Act 16, 2007, with concerted efforts, Nigerian freight forwarders can perform well in networking to move globally-traded goods. I also discovered that most and major project cargo/bulk cargo logistics clearance application is controlled and dominated by the foreigners as opposed to indigenous operators as obtained in other clime outside Nigeria.
I have witnessed the appreciation of the forwarders by the government of other climate during their yearly budgeting and economic developmental planning and strategy for accelerated movements of trade and services. Finally, I realised that the forwarders can genuinely make profit from its services and still add value to the system. It is all about packaging.
Did you get support and co-operation from anybody or any quarter when you decided to convene the maiden meeting to revive CRFFN?
The maiden meeting was totally my idea. Having interacted and taken a deep sober reflection of my actions and inactions as the helmsman of the CRFFN, hence I initiated this move which is gradually gathering storm. I make bold to state that every leader in the profession today is eager and willing to work for the resuscitation of the CRFFN.
Were you encouraged by the attendance and the resolutions reached at the end of the first meeting?
Yes, the attendance was very positive and in one voice we reached a common resolution to set aside our differences and work together to revive and restructure CRFFN.
I learnt more meetings have taken place in Lagos and elsewhere, especially in Port Harcourt Rivers State. Are you also the convener of these other meetings or a fallout of the first one convened at your instance?
Yes, my approach which was collaborated and endorsed by all the leaders was targeted to graduate these collaborative meetings, hence, no amount spent is too much in achieving peace. So, having successfully held meeting with the leadership of the associations, it is important to convene another meeting with the elders (those who have put in 20 years and above in the industry) our meeting resolution with them will be an added endorsement.
Then the last in the series of meetings will be the convocation of a town hall meeting of all the registered freight forwarders, where all shades of opinion shall be observed, and the final collective decision of the forwarders will suggest our next line of actions.
Why do you think government, especially the Federal Ministry of Transport, have not been prompt in addressing the issues plaguing CRFFN, especially that of adequate funding?
First, you need to understand that the minister and the officials in the ministry are not practising professionals. They are politicians and administrators in their right. So they will see their obligation of nurturing the CRFFN to stability as expenditure without corresponding income revenue, like it is with NPA, NIMASA, Nigerian Shippers Council, National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA), and the Nigerian Railway Corporation (NRC) and so on. Therefore, the ministry sees the council as a burden, moreso that it appears to the ministry that we seem to be divided in our pursuits and representations.
What is your take in the argument in some quarters that government s slow response to your demands, especially in adequately funding CRFFN, is in line with the agenda of those who did not want CRFFN to perform from day one?
I disagree with that argument. The truth is that we are not united in our approach and of course, you know in a disunited approach we will all fall. But that does not foreclose the fact that there are some quarters that felt threatened with the relevant sections of the CRFFN Act.
Will you put your hat in the ring if the coast is clear for the conduct of a fresh election to the Governing Council of CRFFN?
That will be asking too much from the forwarders. My duty is to be around to ensure peace and stability within the council transition and succession programmes. I will remain a registered freight forwarder with the council. My contribution will be to ensure that within a limited period of time, at least 90 per cent of project cargo will be said to have been handled by the Nigerian freight forwarders, thereby helping the federal government to reducing the number of our unemployed youths and contributing actively towards our GDP growth.
As a practising licensed customs agent, how do you see the extension of the three destination inspection service providers?
The extension is highly inconsistent with the collective economic pursuit of the people. It is either you disengage them or you formalise their contract for another reasonable number of years, instead of this ongoing front and back arrangements.
Against the backdrop of the 48 hours cargo clearance regime propagated by the Federal Government, how many days does it you to take delivery of your consignment from the arrival into the nation s seaports and the exit gates?
From the time of cargo arrival to the port and to the time of cargo exit from the port, it takes an average of 17 days. This is a far cry to the federal government expectation especially on the 48 hours cargo delivery time mouthed by most government officials.
What is your take on the quantity of cargo designated for physical examination by the management of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS)?
The number of cargo designated for physical examination by the Nigeria Customs Service is a function of the number of non compliant importation level in the port. As such if there is reasonable compliance to trade laws, more cargo will go to scanning operations.
This August 2013 makes Alhaji Inde Dikko Abdullahi four years in the saddle as the Comptroller General of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), how many marks will you score him if you are asked to assess him?
In my opinion, Alhaji Inde Dikko Abdullahi has done well in the aspect of managing the Customs service from its hopeless condition to a befitting hope assurance service. But when it comes to partnership with the forwarders, the old tradition prevails. Therefore, the right person to score him will definitely be Mr. President who gave him this rare opportunity to serve his nation.
What is your advice to licensed customs agents like you and practising freight forwarders in the dissolved governing council of CRFFN?
For advice yes, but for dissolving the governing council of CRFFN, I say no, because the governing council of CRFFN is yet to be officially and properly dissolved. So till then, I will revert back to you.
Do you have any parting shot?
Freight forwarders should embrace professionalism.
Aerodynamic trailer designed with CGI software
A NEW aerodynamic lorry designed by a Manchester Metropolitan University lecturer is cutting fuel and design costs for businesses.
Dr Peter Twigg, from the School of Engineering, helped Altrincham-based Cartwright Group design more efficient trailers for commercial vehicles which would drastically reduce drag and save on fuel costs.
Now, predicted three-year turnover at the firm is 18million thanks to the new design approach.
Dr Twigg and KTP Associate Anthony Bukowski were working with the firm through the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) – a venture involving companies, higher education institutions and academics with the aim of helping to turn the knowledge that businesses are seeking into projects.
And thanks to Dr Twigg s use of 3-D modelling on the effects of wind on the trailer, the company was able to save thousands on prototype costs as well as showing potential customers just what the new trailer can do.
While his work over the four-year project earned him the outstanding grade from the KTP its highest accolade.
Dr Twigg said: About four years ago I was involved with preliminary discussion with John Cartwright from the company to use CGI software to model wind flowing over trailer models just a visual thing, it didn t give information out.
He was very interested in developing that into a full KTP proposal. The actual project aim was to develop a high-efficient, low-carbon trailer. He was particularly interested in not just optimising the design but to be able to pull the potential trailer model instantly in the 3-D wind tunnel.
It can now be seen on roads up and down the country being hauled by some of the nation s biggest firms, such as ASDA.
Dr Twigg added: It was two-fold, they already had highly efficient trailers but had problems communicating that to customers. They could show the customers how it worked with the 3-D modelling.
It was also very expensive to build prototypes to try out new designs, so it could be done in the virtual world instead at lower costs.
It substantially lowers fuel use. It will pay for itself several times over.
“I see the trailers everywhere now and it is quite a nice thing.

Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC) has released its Reference Tariff Schedule (RTS) for port fees to come into effect from 1 July 2013.
The Reference Tariff Schedule will see increases in fees for the movement of containers and motor vehicles as well as for channel fees and the Channel Deepening Project Infrastructure levy.
A statement released by the PoMC said that a failure to meet forecast trade figures for 2012-13 (by approximately $3 million) had led to the under recovery of the funds required to pay the Port Licence Fee and therefore the need to increase charges for the following financial year to make up the shortfall.
The impact on some specific fees and charges, as set out in the RTS, is as follows:
- Wharfage for loaded twenty foot containers will increase by $3.20 to $64.40 per TEU plus GST
- Wharfage charges for empty containers will increase by $0.80 to $16.00 per TEU plus GST
- Motor vehicle charges will increase by an average of $1.82 per motor vehicle to $37.96 plus GST
- Channel fees will increase on average by 5.2%
- The discount on channel fees provided to cruise vessels will decrease by 5% to 25%
- The Channel Deepening Project (CDP) Infrastructure levy will remain unchanged and will not be subject to a CPI escalation this year.

A mini bus driver in Osogbo, Osun state was on Saturday commended for being a true selfless Nigerian after he returned N49,000 cash and a cheque of N380,000 to the owner who left a purse containing the money and the cheque in his bus. The owner was said to have boarded the mini-bus from Fakunle area of Osogbo to Aregbe.
The owner of the items, Mrs Olubunmi Adeleke, a teacher at Our Lady and St. Francis College, Osogbo who left the purse containing the items never thought it would be returned to her. It was only a sad moment when she realized her mistake.
Mrs Adeleke lives at Agunbelewo area of Osogbo while the cheque was written in her favour from her co-operative society.
Speaking in Osogbo, Mrs. Adeleke said, I was really devastated when I realised that I had misplaced the purse.
I got the N380,000 cheque from my cooperative for a private project. I was about to give up all hope when the bus driver traced me and returned all my money and personal effects intact, she said.
The God fearing 33-year-old driver, Bisi Oladimeji, who lives in Ikirun, but operates in Osogbo with a mini bus registered, XA 76 RGB said that although he was in need of money he could have just parted with such money which obviously was not hers, I couldn t have taken what is not mine. She said
Oladimeji said he became a bus driver since he could not get a white-collar job.
In his words, I have a Higher National Diploma,HND, in Accountancy from the Federal Polytechnic, Offa. The bus is not my own; I am just a hired driver; I do it to keep soul and body together.
He said he sat for the recent Osun Civil Service Commission recruitment examination and scored 199, adding that although I don t know whether I would be employed, but I know that only God can bless me.
When I saw the purse in my bus, I checked inside and found an identity card showing where the passenger works, he said.
When asked how he locate the owner of the purse, Oladimeji said, I traced the school in Isale Aro area of Osogbo and from there, I was directed to Mrs. Adeleke s house and I gave her the purse. Everything in the purse was intact when she checked inside.

Plans to develop a second container port in the State of Victoria have received a major boost with confirmation that funding for key preliminary work1 will be provided by the Victorian government.
Port of Hastings
While the total cost of the Port of Hastings development project is estimated to cost several billion dollars, the government has committed $110 million over the next four years to finance a number of essential preliminary project aspects, including transportation planning, design work, and the cost of satisfying the environmental approvals process.
The ambitious plans for the Port of Hastings will eventually see the completion of a container port with a capacity of up to 9 million containers, which would represent twice the current capacity of the Port of Melbourne though Melbourne itself is undergoing a $1.6 billion expansion project.
Announcing the funding, Victorian Premier Denis Napthine2 stated that container trade in Victoria was expected to quadruple by 2035 making the development of Port of Hastings a vital move in the economic future of the state.
Decisive action is being taken to build a second Victorian container port and ensure this state remains the freight and logistics capital of Australia, he said.
Port of Melbourne
Melbourne s own container trade was worth more than $82 billion last year, and with growth of between 5% and 6% annually, the need to expand the capacity of the city and state s container facilities has become acute.
Victoria Ports Minister David Hodgett said the multi-billion dollar development was an essential part of meeting the trade demands of the future.
Without investing to meet future demand, the State will reach capacity by the mid 2020s, even with the benefit of current expansion projects, Mr Hodgett said.
The Port of Hastings is a critical project for Victoria and the Napthine Government is getting on with delivering the vital infrastructure our State needs.
The State Government, which has also confirmed it will seek private investment to help fund the remaining stages of the project, stated that the announced funding package will finance:
- completion of preferred scope
- design work
- transport connection planning
- preliminary work to support environmental approvals processes
- business case development
- procurement and delivery strategies
The need for more significant port facilities at Hastings was foreseen almost 60 years ago, when the Bolte Government of the 1960s set aside a total of 4,000 hectares of land to facilitate future port expansion, and some of this land will now be utilized.
With this land and Hastings status as a naturally deep port, there is no doubt that this is the best option for development to meet our growing freight needs, Premier Napthine said.
The QTLC Operational Plan 2012-2014 commits to activities related to the collection of survey information on industry issues and concerns and freight and logistics data to inform QTLC activities and strategic priorities. The collection of survey information on industry issues and freight and logistics data is vital to informing the QTLC activities and strategic priorities.
As a result the POB and QTLC enlisted the services of the Victoria University to undertake the IMEX Logistics Chain Study. The aims of the IMEX study are to provide robust data on:
- traffic volumes
- freight movement and flow maps
- trade volumes
In addition to indentifying the land side movement of all full and empty import export containers through the POB, Acacia Ridge and the Brisbane Multimodal Terminal, the study will also capture landside movements of:
- motor vehicles
- bulk coal, cereals and grains
- break bulk, in particular steel, coal and project cargo (wide and heavy loads)
It will also take into consideration anticipated Port trade growth and the downstream on the network, truck movements and congestion.
The study, when completed will allow for a more informed assessment of freight movements and a greater understanding of impediments to its efficiency.
The ECC approved freight subsidy for export of 1.2 million tons of sugar. Previously, the govt had provided Rs8 billion in tax relief by lowering federal excise duty to 0.5% to the sugar industry. PHOTO: FILE
The government has decided to pay a subsidy of Rs1.75 on every kilogramme of sugar. The decision was taken by the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet on Wednesday, which approved inland freight subsidy of Rs1.75 per kg for the export of 1.2 million tons of sugar.
The ECC met under the chairmanship of Federal Finance and Economic Affairs Minister Saleem Mandviwalla.
The move came in the wake of slow pace of sugar export and keeping in view the industry s liquidity position that causes delay in paying dues to farmers.
It was the second favour given to the influential sugar lobby in just a couple of months, as the government has already provided Rs8 billion in tax relief by lowering federal excise duty to 0.5%.
The ECC also exempted all foreign and local loans for the Karachi Circular Railway project from general sales tax, customs duty and other federal levies to ensure financial viability of the project.
To facilitate and accelerate the project, the Ministry of Railways had moved a summary for waiving general sales tax and customs duty on loans for the project.
The KCR is a mega project of national importance and will provide modern rail-based commuter service for the citizens of Karachi at a cost of $2.6 billion. The ECC was told that Japan International Cooperation Agency would provide $2.4 billion on 0.2% markup payable in 40 years, including a 10-year grace period.
The ECC approved a summary of the Finance Division for equity investment in Democratic Republic of Congo. The State Bank of Pakistan evaluated the proposal and recommended that Lucky Cement may be allowed to remit $40 million on account of equity investment in connection with establishment of a cement manufacturing plant through a joint venture company. The State Bank set a condition, saying the company would arrange foreign exchange from the open market and the outflow would be coordinated with the central bank.
In order to provide fiscal relief and rehabilitate the economic life in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Fata and Pata, the ECC agreed that the areas of Hub and Hattar may be included in the tax amnesty scheme being offered to ghee manufacturers and exporters based in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. This summary was sent for approval by the Federal Board of Revenue.
The ECC endorsed the Framework for Power Cogeneration 2013 (Bagasse/Biomass) for inclusion in the Renewable Energy Policy 2006. This framework will be for all high-pressure cogeneration projects utilising bagasse and biomass.
The Renewable Energy Policy 2006 was also extended for five years. A summary recommending this was moved by the Ministry of Water and Power.

In-Page Links Analysis
The ratio of outbound links to inbound links influences the distribution of the weight of a website as a whole.
Outbound links from the main page bind a website with other websites and determine the niche of that website. These links should not be much.
Indexed Pages in Search Engines
The number of indexed pages first of all indicates the trust level of a website. Webmasters must strive to ensure that the number of indexed pages is close to the actual number of pages.
If the number of indexed pages exceeds the actual number, this can be due to duplication of the content of that website.
In some cases, search engines consider a duplicated content as deceit and manipulation.
