Kwale Mining project creates over 3,400 jobs in the minisng industry

29, Apr 2016

The Kwale mineral sands project, which is Kenya’s first large scale mining project, has made significant economic contributions since the development of the mine commenced in November 2011 while its future potential is equally significant, according to a new report by Ernst & Young. The report, which quantified the total economic and revenue contributions from the development to the operation of the project, showed that the base titanium-operated mine has made a substantial contribution to the establishment and expansion of the mining economy. This is through direct, indirect and induced benefits such as employment, building a local supply chain as well as raising Kenya’s international profile as a global mining destination.
