Speaking to ANGOP, Velinho de Barros said that a study would facilitate exploration and exploitation of the minerals in the province and would help to evaluate and quantify the various minerals or reserves of existing deposits.


The mining activity in the region is focused on civil construction, with the extraction of aggregates such as rock for the manufacture of crushed stone and sand, practiced in almost every province.


The northern province of Cuanza Thursday hosted the 3rd  regional seminar on mineral resources and commercialization of petroleum derivatives, which, among other issues, recommended the urgent regulation of the law that approves the Mining Code, aiming to discipline the actions of mining in the country.
