Who We Are?

Our company works as a panafrican mining services company for governments and private companies and is a leader in diverse and numerous market segments of precious minerals/metals such as Platinum, Gold, Silver, Coltan, Diamonds, Sapphire, Emerald etc. The company has been recognized with a lot of undertaking large, complex mining projects in Africa, and satisfying customer needs (buyers and sellers), employees and community.

With a staff committed to excellence, who work on more than 100 mining projects each year, we offer clients, both buyers and sellers the accessibility and support of a local firm with the stability and resources of a multi-national. Our business strategy is an interstice one.

While established mines invest several millions dollars to manage a mine, our business plan allow us to work closely with small scale-miners across the continent by providing materials, best small-scale mining practices, empowerment and capacity building. To the end, we are able to collect more than 1000 kg of gold per year directly through the small scale-miners.

PREMIMA serves its partners, clients (Buyer, Seller) and the mining and mineral processing industry at large including Small-scale ones by providing leadership in policy development in cooperation with all levels of African government.

PREMIMA also maximizes synergies between the mining industry, governments, communities, and other sectors.

What We Do?

We sell gold and other precious minerals for sellers (Some African governments, Established mines, Small scale-miners) and We buy gold and other precious minerals for buyers (Corporations, Banks, Refineries, Private etc). We develop and promote the Global Harmonization System for the Panafrican Precious Minerals Management, as a single hub to manage and sell African minerals on the international market.

Our people bring their technical knowledge, experience, and resourcefulness to the delivery of our mining services to African governments, small scale-miners and established mines. We are the African leader in all major market segments of precious minerals/metals, including Platinum, Gold, Silver, Coltan, Diamonds, Sapphire, Emerald etc.

Driven by a commitment to continuous improvement, we are developing and implementing the Global Harmonization System for the Panafrican Precious Minerals Management, which defines a set of rules and best management practices to harmonize the management of precious minerals across the Continent. It is intended to centralize all information on precious minerals, the exchanges of information and to be the principal partner, interface and a single window to sell African minerals on the international market. This improve efficiency in the precious mineral management across the continent and enhance client value (Buyers and Sellers).

The goal is that the same set of rules for best management of the precious mineral will be adopted and used by all African countries and used PREMIMA as the hub to sell African minerals on the international market.

At PREMIMA, We are committed to managing our business activities in an environmentally responsible manner, while contributing to the well-being of the African communities in which we operate.
