Arrow World Largest Gold and Copper Mine Reko Diq Balochistan

America is After Reko Diq Balochistan Gold Reserves – Exclusive Report
Reko Diq is a small town in Chagai District, Balochistan, Pakistan, in a desert area 70 kilometres north west of Naukundi, near to the Iran-Afghan border.
Reko Diq, also the name of an ancient volcano, literally means sandy peak, but this is something of a misnomer. It could be called Tangav Diq, or gold peak, says Syed Fazl-e-Haider, a development expert on such projects.
‘Below the sands lie some 12.3 million tons of copper and 20.9 million ounces of gold. The copper-gold deposits at Reko Diq are believed to be even bigger than those of Sarcheshmeh in Iran and Escondida in Chile’.
What is Reko Diq Project?

The Reko Diq project is a large copper-gold porphyry resource on the Tethyan belt, located in the dry desert conditions of southwest Pakistan within the remote and sparsely populated province of Balochistan . The Tethyan belt is a prospective region for large gold-copper porphyries.
Reko Diq is a giant copper and gold project in Chaghi. The main license (EL5) is held jointly by the Government of Balochistan (25%), Antofagasta Minerals (37.5%) and Barrick Gold (37.5%)
Actually Barrick has a 50% interest in Tethyan Copper Company (the other 50% is owned by Antofagasta plc), which has a 75% interest in the Reko Diq project and associated mineral interests (for a resulting 37.5% interest in Reko Diq).
As of December 31, 2008, Barrick’s share of measured and indicated and inferred gold resources is 8.5 and 8.4 million ounces respectively. Barrick’s share of measured and indicated and inferred copper resources is 11.5 and 8.5 billion pounds respectively.
A further 14 mineralized porphyry bodies are known to exist, with the potential to place the Reko Diq Project among the largest undeveloped copper resources on the globe.
The TCC has estimated annual production 200 to 500 million copper tones from the project. The Company started the Reko-Diq copper project in 2003 with an investment of US $130 million. The project is faced with acute shortage of water for having no surface flow. The expected mining operations in Reko Diq will depend on sub-surface water with the exploration of underground water potential in the region being a pre-requisite for any mining project.
The Real Face of Barrick Gold:

In a reader poll conducted by the Censored News blog; Readers, primarily Indigenous Peoples, voted Monsanto as the second Worst Company in the World. Peabody Energy Corp., recently granted a life of mine permit to expand coal mining on Navajo and Hopi lands, was voted the third Worst Company in the World.
Barrick Gold Corp., which began the destruction of the Western Shoshone’s Mount Tenabo region during Thanksgiving, was voted the fourth Worst Company in the World. Blackwater Worldwide, responsible for murders and brutality worldwide, was voted the fifth Worst Company in the World
Barrick Gold, responsible for the deaths of Indigenous Peoples around the world, began its onslaught on the sacred lands of the Western Shoshone at Mount Tenabo during the Thanksgiving holidays. Before leaving office, President Bush Sr. made it possible for Barrick to lease lands for gold mining in Nevada . Once out of office, Bush Sr. went to work for Barrick as a senior consultant.
Protestors gathered outside of Barrick Gold’s annual general meeting last year to show their solidarity with the affected indigenous community representatives who were inside the meeting voicing their complaints to the company shareholders.
In Australia, DR Congo, Ghana , Tanzania and New Guinea , Indigenous Peoples are fighting Barrick’s destruction in solidarity with the Western Shoshone. They are fighting the coring out of mountains for minute particles of gold and the poisoning of water with cyanide leaching.
Carrie Dann and other Western Shoshone grandmothers said the United States is trespassing on Western Shoshone treaty land, destroying mountains, trees, food and medicine, while leaving dirty polluted water ponds for birds and animals.
“Why doesn’t the mining company go and dig the Vatican or the Mormon Tabernacle instead of Western Shoshone lands, I’m sure they will find gold there,” said Mary McCloud, Western Shoshone grandmother, mourning the bulldozing of the pines near the ceremonial grounds on Mount Tenabo in November.
Near the Porgera mine in New Guinea, Jethro Tulin of the Akali Tange Association, told Barrick Gold, “Your security guards have been shooting and killing our people and raping, even gang-raping our women with impunity for years now.”
Sydney residents also raised concerns about cyanide.
In 2007, concerned citizens gathered at Chullora in western Sydney to protest against the multinational mining company Barrick Gold.The protest was part of an International Day of Action against the company.
Barrick Gold has mines across the globe, including North and South America, Africa and Australia.
Rise of Barrick Gold in Pakistan

The Jewish Company working there states that the pre-feasibility study is expected to be finalized in the third quarter of 2009. Work on the feasibility study has commenced and is expected to be completed in early 2010.
Barrick bought a stake in the Reko Dig copper-gold project in Pakistan for $100 million in February from Antofagasta PLC, a Chilean mining group.
In 2007, When CEO Greg Wilkins went to Islamabad in connection with that project, Munk said, he was received by both Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz and President Pervez Musharraf.
Although the company’s assessment of opportunities in that country is still in the early days, Wilkins said Barrick would be “very interested” in more projects there, despite challenges posed by the presence of al-Qaida in some of its regions.
According to Mineweb.com…. What is believed to be one of the world’s largest reserves of gold and copper were discovered last year in the Chaghi area in Pakistan’s southwest Balochistan Province. The Balochistan government has a 25% share while Barrick Gold has obtained 50% of the Reko Diq project. Reko Diq is believed to contain 12.3 million tons of copper and 20.9 million ounces of gold in inferred and indicated resources. Some surveys have suggested that Reko Diq may contain as much as 11 billion pounds of copper and nine million ounces of gold.
BHP Billiton, which was involved in the project at an earlier date, also believed Reko Diq may have the potential to yield copper resources that may eventually make it a multi-billion project. Antofagasta is now a 50-50 partner with Barrick. If the project is successful, it may have the potential to generate a mining industry in Pakistan.
An estimated US$46 million project budget includes a scoping study and initial pre-feasibility costs. The scoping study has been completed for the Western Porphyries with an updated resource anticipated at year end, Barrick Executive Vice President, Exploration and Project Development, Alex Davidson told analysts last week.
While Riko was initially envisioned as a 72,000 tpd operation, Davidson said the joint ventures partners are now examining “significantly greater outputs.”
In an e-mail to Mineweb, Barrick Senior Vice President Vince Borg said, “Our project staff in Islamabad are safe, which is the paramount concern wherever we operate, and we are in regular contact with them.” He noted that Reko Diq is in a very remote location, Balochistan , “and work on the site is continuing.”
The Conspiracy

BHP Billiton, the world’s largest mining company, started this project with the Australian firm Tethyan, entering into a joint venture with the Balochistan government and estimating an annual production of 200 to 500 million pounds of copper. A large number of porphyry rocks are also known to exist.
The interests of the Australian company in Reko Diq and its neighbourhood were taken over by the Toronto-based Barrick Gold Corporation and the Chilean Antofagasta Minerals. These companies were handed a very lucrative deal. The terms agreed upon show that there is more to the issue than meets the eye. Royalties were reduced from the initial four to two per cent. Terms for the provision of cost-free land for an airport and a 400 km Reko Diq-Gwadar road were accepted. An unjust clause is that a 25 per cent share will be paid to the Balochistan government, but only after it invests 25 per cent in the project.
Antofagasta’s net assets at the end of 2007 grew to almost $5bn. In December 2005 it said: “Tethyan’s principal assets are a 75 per cent interest in the highly prospective Chagai Hills region of North West Pakistan known as Reko Diq, including the Tanjeel Mineral Resource. This mining district hosts significant copper-gold porphyry deposits as part of an extended copper-gold belt. Total indicated and inferred mineral resource estimates at these properties are 1,213 million tonnes with a copper grade of 0.58% and a gold grade of 0.28 grams per tonne. Estimates include probable reserves at the Tanjeel of 128.8 million tonnes with a copper grade of 0.7%.”
According to Rob Maguire of the Dominion paper, Barrick is the foremost gold mining corporation in the world, with sales exceeding $2.6bn in 2005 and the largest reserves in the industry, at nearly 90 million ounces. Proponents of this project state that the mines will create thousands of high paying jobs and give a massive boost to the local economy. However the main fear many have is that revenues generated by this project will be squandered by corrupt officials. Therefore it is imperative that a mechanism be evolved to ensure that revenues generated actually lead to better infrastructure, education and health.
These corporations have outsourced services to Pakistani contractors such as ROCKMORE PVT LIMITED, Security 2000, Zia ul Haq & Company, and foreign companies like Capital Drilling & Zain Drilling Company. In April 2008, Zain Drilling Company terminated the services of forty drilling assistants and recruited novices and non-locals. The AZAT Foundation has tried to protect their rights, and on June 14, 2008 a well-attended demonstration was held outside the Quetta Press Club.
There are many advocates of such mega projects who claim that the Baloch have benefited from their trickle-down effect. However, mining uses sodium cyanide, arsenic and other chemicals which produce toxic by-products. According to Marcel Claude, vice-president of the international environmental group Oceana, gold mining dumps 79 tonnes of waste for every 28 grams of gold and produces 96 per cent of the world’s arsenic emissions.
Community representatives of affected indigenous communities in Papua New Guinea, Chile and Australia traveled great distances to come to Toronto last year to speak out against the world’s largest gold mining corporation, Barrick Gold, regarding their gold mining operations where they live.

Do we have our own industry on this? Or are these all foreign companies?

QUETTA: Tethyan Copper Company Pakistan plans to operate a world class copper and gold mine with 2.2 billion tonnes economically mineable reserves by deploying a cutting edge technology at Reco Dig, Chagai, Balochistan as a joint venture with the Balochistan government with initial $3.2 billion foreign direct investment over four years.

“We have submitted a feasibility study to Balochistan government and are having talks with the provincial government to conclude an agreement which will result in take-off for the project in next four years,” TCCP senior project geologist Asadur Rehman told a group of journalists who visited the site of project, 70 kilometres north west of Nokandi. “Balochistan will get 25 percent profit plus royalty. Balochistan government will invest 25 percent in construction, development of project.” 

He said if an agreement was signed with the Balochistan government, TCCP- Barrick Gold Corporation and Antofagasta Minerals of Chile-will export condensate copper and gold through Gwadar port through 682km buried pipeline from Reco Dig to Gwadar at prices quoted on the London Stock Exchange. TCCP has so far invested $214 million in Reco Dig project. He said estimated payable metal production at Reco Dig over about 56 years of mine life is 22 billion pounds of copper and 13 million ounces of gold. It has an average grade of 0.5 percent copper and 0.3 grammes gold per tonne. ppi

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s potential copper and gold deposit Reko Diq (Balochistan) has been able to attract a fresh investment to the tune of $3.2 billion by a joint venture comprising the world’s largest mining company Barricks Gold Corporation of Canada and Chillian Tethyan Copper Company. 


Federal Secretary Finance Salman Siddique hosted a reception in honour of the President and Chief Executive of Barricks Gold Corporation of Canada, Aaron Regent which was attended by Federal Minister for Finance Dr Hafeez Shaikh, diplomats and senior government officials. 

President and CEO of Barricks Gold Corporation of Canada, Aaron Regent speaking on the occasion said that the joint venture to develop the Riko Diq into a world class mine with transfer of technology and human resource development for the benefit of the province as well as for the economy of Pakistan. 

He informed that development of Reko Diq would create around 11,000 job opportunities and the project operations would provide jobs to some 25, 000 to mainly locals as well as technical human resource. He hoped that efforts of all the stakeholders would enable the project to be a success and this would contribute in the economy. He showed full confidence in the economy of Pakistan and said that success of this project would pave the way for more investment in mining sector of the country. 

The details obtained from the officials of the company, the companies managing the Reko Diq project have so far invested $200 million on feasibility and other allied works and upon successful completion of the study both the companies have decided to make an invest of $3.2 billion in mining of copper and gold in Reko Diq. 

According to the results of the feasibility study, the mineral resource at Reko Diq is estimated at 5.9 billion tonnes. From this resource, an estimated 2.2 billion tonnes of economically mineable ore, with an average copper grade of 0.5 percent and an average gold grade of 0.3 g tonne will be processed to produce 22 billion pounds of copper (10.000.000 tonnes) and 13 million ounces of gold in the form of payable metal in about 56 years of mine life. 

According to the details, initial mine capital investment is estimated at $2 to $2.5 billion for development of state-of-the-art copper and gold mine facility and in second investment will add another $2.5 billion. For the development of supporting infrastructure would require an investment of $500 million in Balochistan. The life of the mine is estimated at 50 years to 70 years. The local procurement of goods and services of the project has been estimated at $300 million to $400 million annually. The investors are considering using renewable energy opportunities like wind farms, geothermal and bio-fuels for their operations in Reko Diq. The project would benefit Balochistan in the form of substantial profits, royalties and lease payments. Talking to media on the occasion Federal Minister for Finance said that such a huge investment in Pakistan’s mining sector shows the interest of the world-class investors in Pakistan. He said that the government of Pakistan would provide maximum cooperation to the investors to make this project a success. 

Secretary Finance Salman Siddique expressed hope that the entry of the world’s largest mining company in Pakistan’s mining sector would help Pakistan attract more investment, transfer of technology and human resource development within the country. He also extended full assurance of cooperation to the investors for their success in Reko Diq Project. Federal Secretary Petroleum Kamran Lashari informed the reporters on the occasion that with the approval of the 18th amendment in the parliament, the role and scope of the federating units in mining sector have been determined once and for all. After this big achievement the Ministry of Petroleum would again start consultation process with all stakeholders including provinces on finalisation of National Mineral Policy.

This project has nothing to do with the United States of America and Zionists.

A Canadian and a Chilian company is involved in this project.


Its time Pakistan makes use of the natural resources rather than letting them to just sit and rot.

ISLAMABAD, Oct 8 (APP): Ambassador Fernando Schmidt Ariztia, Foreign Secretary of Chile said on Friday that his government was looking forward to the finalization of its investment in the exploitation of copper in Balochistan where their company M/S Antofagusta would invest close to $ four billion. He said the project would turn into a symbol of growing Pakistan-Chile relations and open up new vistas for bilateral cooperation.


He stated this while talking to Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir here. The Chilean Foreign Secretary, who is currently on a visit to Pakistan, met with Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir and discussed issues of mutual interest. 

The Ambassador of Chile to Pakistan,Luis Palma (resident in Tehran) was also present. 

The Chilean Foreign Secretary, articulating the key elements of Chile’s foreign relations, stated that his country attached great importance to upgrading its bilateral relations with Pakistan in all walks of life. 

There was tremendous potential existed between the two countries to promote commercial and economic relations, he added. 

Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir reiterated Pakistan’s desire to augment its relations with Chile underlining that Pakistan offered great investment opportunities and that the two countries should examine possibilities in multiple areas including economic, commercial, cultural, science and technology and people-to-people contacts.

The Foreign Secretary expressed satisfaction at the level of bilateral cooperation at different multilateral forums. 

The two sides agreed to look into the possibility of entering into a free trade agreement which would accrue mutual benefits. They also agreed to work towards instituting bilateral annual political consultations between the Foreign Ministries of the two countries. 

Foreign Secretary Bashir raised the issue of a Pakistan national, Saifur Rehman, who was still in the custody of Chilean authorities on account of alleged possession of traces of explosives. 

The Chilean Foreign Secretary expressed the hope that they would be able to reopen their resident diplomatic Mission in Islamabad, which was closed down in 1989, as soon as possible. 

The two sides agreed to expedite the matter of a visa abolition agreement for diplomatic passports of the two countries. 

Foreign Secretary Bashir gave a detailed briefing on the regional situation and how Pakistan was earnestly engaged in promoting peace and stability in South Asia.

great news.... but the share of Balochistan seems too low 
May be we should have allocated more budget for this project and own major share of this deal

Something seems fishy to me here

Balochistan should get the lion's share and the local people should be the hired first. The FC is hiring Baloch youth and the Pakistan Army, Navy and Air Force are hiring the youth from there, but civilian jobs also need to be opened more for them.

You may be right and Balochistan share should be increased even though they are already getting a good share. But anyways I think lets start the project as soon as possible and solve these issues with negotiations. Reko diq project is too big and might change the lives of the locals if it gets started. So start the project and solve the issues with negotiations. The major aim should be to satisfy the locals just like we did in Chamalang.

Lets put the PAKISTAN back in Defence.pk
