London and Luanda, February 28, 2019

In the first announcement of 2019, Emerald Group has launched a new mineral exploration company, which it has named NextGen, established to identify, build and operate mining projects in the west and southern parts of Africa. While NextGen has been strategically incorporated under the Australian jurisdiction, it has a representative office in London and main headquarters in Luanda, Angola, with close proximity to the company’s mining operations.

Led by a team of seasoned professionals whose track records span globally and particularly in Africa, NextGen Founders and Management have a deepened understanding of the natural resource market and strong relationships with large funding houses and key decision makers; thus, making the firm uniquely placed in successfully executing mining projects from start to finish. NextGen is capable of managing all or various aspects of the mining process for either Greenfield or Brownfield projects; and where necessary, executing the rehabilitation and development of stalled and limited phase mining operations.

NextGen demonstrates a fresh and multifaceted investment approach in the world of Natural Resources and intends on delivering a positive economic impact. With a local presence in Africa, the company is committed to the long-term economic growth of its host communities through job creation and social projects, albeit ensuring the protection of the environment.

While mining is a cornerstone industry for many communities and a major contributor to the economy, Africa possesses 30{a1cc5371d7c363fe69c00ea3f5d5acad204dd7c744ea8e2328253cf9bfa13af2} of the world’s untapped natural resources. NextGen aids in meeting the global demand for resource and, aligned with the mission of Emerald Group, aims to drive infrastructure development in Africa, and become a strategic gateway to the emerging market.
