24 October 2011, Sweetcrude, London – A total of 34 minerals of commercial quantities have been found in Nigeria, Mr. David Adulugba, Executive Director of the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), has said.
Adulugba told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in London that the minerals include silver, tin columbite, calcium and lime stones, adding that the NEPC was currently looking for a market for the minerals.
“A total of 34 minerals of commercial quantities have been found in Nigeria which is more than the oil; the Ministry of Solid Minerals is helping in their production. Our job is to find the market,” Adulugba said.
Urging interested investors, including Nigerians living abroad, to register with NEPC online, he said many things, including export, were being subjected to various reform programmes by the Nigerian government.
