News coming into us, reveals that gold deposits have been discovered by the Federal Government along Abuja to Nasarawa highway.
This was discovered by the Federal Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Olamilekan Adegbite as he received the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule in Abuja.
“Nasarawa State is the home of solid minerals in the country. We had an earlier discussion about recent discovery of precious minerals in the Nasarawa, Abuja axis.
“As you probably might be aware, we have been talking about this for a while; there is a program we call NIMEP executed by the ministry where the government has put about N15bn into exploration for minerals, one of which is gold.”
“We have done this exploration across the country and we have discovered a very nice track of gold deposits especially between Abuja and Nasarawa where we share borders.”
