Gold Prices have been rising steadily over the last one year . Countries are now exploring the possibility of gold mining, scrap gold re-melting, gold panning from river beds where gold mining is already in progress. We are a Trading company in Dubai . We are not in the business of gold but we have access to reasonable amounts of gold in Sudan in the form of getting gold in all the above 3 sources . The gold is received by our Head Office in Khartoum, Sudan, checked for purity at the government labs and a payment made to the suppliers who bring gold in small quantities . We pay them according to daily market price less a percentage which is our profit. We are not talking about huge profits, but about 1 % profit ( net ) is what we pay less. The total gross profit is a bit more but there are 2 costs involved namely a tax to the government of Sudan to export the gold and the cost of getting the gold into Dubai or any other place where it can be sold. All in all a net profit of 1% is what we make . We receive in Khartoum, Sudan between 10 kilos to around 100 kilos of gold every 4 to 5 days in this way and officially send it to the top gold buying companies in Dubai . We also have the complete equipment for mining of gold and also certain identified patches of gold detected area released by the Govt authorities but we have not got into mining currently. Our Head office a reputed business entity in Sudan is in the business of constructing Roads, Dams, Mines , Refineries ,Electricity Transmission lines , Oil related civil works all over Sudan . This email is being sent to you to find out if you would like to partner with us in any of the above areas namely scrap gold trading, panned gold purchase, gold mining .

We can offer guarantees in the form of securtiy cheque in Dubai from our Dubai company, Fully paid non encumbered Property in Dubai , Transferrable Government Bonds issued by the Sudan govt which was issued to the Head Office for projects done by our Parent Group in the field of bulding Roads, Dams , Bridges.
