The right connections and partnerships are important to Mabwe Minerals, a Raptor Resources Holdings (RRHI) subsidiary dealing with the mining, logistics and commercial sale of barite and other industrial minerals and metals in Zimbabwe.
Mabwe’s key operations are at Dodge Mine, a mine located on a rich hydrothermal mountain range in Shamva, Zimbabwe, and indicating the presence of high-grade barite, an abundance of limestone and talc, and widespread gossan deposits that typically indicate the existence of copper, zinc, nickel and gold.
According to surveys and studies, Dodge Mine hosts some of the best API-grade barite around. This kind of barite can cover the market’s demand for weighting agents used during oil and gas drilling to prevent well blowouts and/or shaft collapses, or it can serve as a component in the automotive, medical diagnostic, heavy concrete and paint pigment fields. These are incredibly substantial markets with significant potential for growth.
Consequently, Mabwe has strategically selected and secured the right partners to gain access to these markets and to an established customer base. Those partners are Yasheya Limited and Steinbock Minerals and, with them, Mabwe is now in a suitable place from which it can cater to the growing demands of the oil and gas market off the coast of Mozambique and South Africa. With these partnerships, Mabwe has also found a way in with a customer base that extends from Europe to the Middle East. This base comprises an expansive network of barite customers as well as a multibillion dollar oil and gas company that has entered into a 3 million ton supplier agreement with Mabwe.
Overall, Mabwe’s business alliances are set up to provide the company with cost-effective, dependable support for its mining and shipping operations as well as a strong regional and global presence. These partnerships also offer added benefits:
- Improved margins due to tight logistical operations
- Recognized global delivery network
- Pairings with several leading mining companies
