The history of Gold mining in Rwanda took place between years of 1930-1960s by colonialists. Since that time its mining was of artisanal type until now. But the Government of Rwanda through NGALI Mining Ltd took a decision to start a small-scale mining business for improving the existent form of mining and achieving on a semi-industrial level.
In Rwanda we have two types of Gold which are Placer gold and Alluvial gold. The two types are both available in the concessions owned by Ngali Mining Ltd (NML) in different areas such as Bweyeye and Miyove. However, note that all these areas are yet to be exploited by NML.
We have two mining Sites:
1. Miyove is in Northern Province, around 67 km from Kigali city in Gicumbi and Burera districts.
2. Bweyeye is in Western province, former Cyangugu, around 300km from Kigali city just at the border of Rwanda/Burundi.
