Koidu Limited Empowers Young Mining Engineers
Koidu Limited has continued giving back to host communities and the country at large by living up to its corporate social responsibility in the area of imparting knowledge into young people, while at the same time embarking on infrastructural, health and community development.
In that light, Koidu Limited currently has four Fourah Bay College Mining Engineer interns and 7 IAMTECH Mining and Petroleum Technology graduates on site, undergoing a four-month work experience programme in the company.
Speaking to this medium, the General Manager of Koidu Limited, Christo Swanepoel, underscored the importance of the practical knowledge the company’s engineers would be imparting in the young graduates in the interest of the state.
He maintained that the interns and graduates have been rotationally assigned to every department within the company to gain experience in all of the various fields of work.
“The interns are currently working with the Planning, Metallurgy and Engineering Departments as their last assignments before they complete the programme,” he said.
In another development in week forty eight (48) the company made a donation of 10 loads of tailings to the Koidu Local Government Hospital on Friday 27th November 2015, and 7 loads on Thursday 26th November 2015.

The company also continues with its regular weekly schedule of grading and maintaining the roads within the local resettlement communities.
