Marampa is a 2 Mtpa surface mine in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone. It is 100% owned and operated by Gerald Metals who acquired the mine after Timis Corporation ceased operations. After an extensive review of the project, Gerald Metals recommenced production at the site in February 2019 with its first shipment in June 2019. However, a review of mining licences in Sierra Leone has resulted in a temporary suspension of operations at Marampa. While production is believed to have recently restarted, ore is being stockpiled because iron ore exports from Marampa are still halted.
