Exploitation of El Meknassi phosphate mine expected to start end of May

The El Meknassi phosphate mine will start to be operations by the end of May 2017, said Secretary of State for Mining Hechmi Hmidi during a visit Thursday to the Sidi Bouzid governorate.

He assured that all the problems that prevented the start of the mine’s operation will be resolved, notably meeting the demands of certain citizens regarding the revision of the value of the compensation offered to them and the increase of the number of candidates selected in the first competition for the recruitment of workers at the Meknassi mine.

The Secretary of State argued that all necessary precautions will be taken to reduce the negative environmental effects that could result from the mine’s activities.

He recalled that “all necessary measures to reduce the negative effects that could result from the start of the activity of the mine will be taken.”
