In 2009, AFECC stepped into a brand-new field - overseas mineral resources development. Up to now, AFECC has acquired franchise prospecting license and mining license successively for diamond, gold, emerald, titanium-zirconium, copper and some other mineral resources in some African countries, such as Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Up till now, two mining areas, Anjin and Jinan, have already been constructed and put into operation in Zimbabwe. Remarkably, it takes less than two years only for Anjin mining area to establish seven modernized dressing lines and formed a complete system for diamond mine industry from prospecting, mining, dressing, sorting to selling. In addition, five dressing lines for Jinan mining area were put into full operation in March 2013. A Kimberley Process inspector, after inspecting Anjin mining area, expressed that Anjin was the best mining area he had ever seen. He made “five first-rate” comment to Anjin: first-rate scale, first-rate facilities, first-rate speed, first-rate team and first-rate management. The relocation area built by AFECC for the local people in the mining area is promoted as a model in Zimbabwe as a residential community with the largest scale, the highest quality and the most complete function.
In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Thsibwe diamond mining project has also been put in operation with a more prosperous future development. In addition, AFECC has several emerald mines in Zambia, which feature in rich reserves and high grade. AFECC was awarded the mining rights of Chibuto titanium-zirconium mine in Mozambique on Nov. 3rd 2014 after fierce competition. This mine is the largest undeveloped heavy mining resources known in the world with about 100 million tons of metal heavy sand deposit. Since the titanium-zirconium resource in China is limited, the development of this project would have realistic and long-term economic meaning for the relief of the shortage of mining resources of China.
