The group said the projects include strengthening the local supply chain; sex education and reproductive health; and diversification of the rural economy.

Jeremy Martin, CEO of Horizonte Minerals commented: "Since Horizonte's initial discovery of the project, we have always strived to ensure that the local communities not only benefit from us being there, but also embrace this project as valued partners.”

He added: “This means ensuring our community programs are a core part of our strategy, where socio-economic development is prioritised as a fundamental aspect of our work in the region.

“We are particularly proud of the economic agricultural diversity projects we have helped to establish, working to empower and support local business, including the participation of women and young people. We look forward to 2020 and new opportunities to make a difference in the community."
