Sahel Mining, a private UK company, is focused on the Djado Gold Property that covers 1,928.1 sq km and a significant amount of the Djado Goldfield in northeastern Niger. Between 2014 and 2017, the Djado Goldfield was subject to a 1930s California-style gold rush with more than 10,000 artisanal miners. It is reported that, before the Djado Goldfield was closed by the Niger Government in Feb2017, over 2.5M oz of gold was recovered. The Djado Gold Property potentially represents an important new gold district in the Precambrian rocks of the Tuareg Shield.

The Djado Gold Property potentially represents an important new multi-million ounce gold district in the Precambrian rocks of the Tuareg Shield. The Tuareg Shield is a highly prolific, but materially underexplored, Precambrian geological region which, despite the lack of exploration to date, has more than 600 documented gold occurrences, often with excellent high-grade gold grades.
