I am Mr. mohammed usman, a native of Burkina Faso republic in West Africa.I am the sales / Marketing Director of my community local miners (Sanso mines ).I am contacting you on behalf of my community which comprises mainly of local gold miners. I represent them and as well look for prospective buyers for their bulk of gold mined locally in our community.
The community has the right to go into any contract of extraction or mining with any interested person or company depending on the discussion reached between both parties concerned.We have been selling or dealing with local buyers but we have not been benefiting from them, some are given the privilege of taking it on credit but we usually have problems in payment and due to this reason,
the villagers asked me to look for a foreign buyer, hence my establishing a contact with you for a mutual business, if it does interest you.We are lacking so many amenities in my commuity because the givernment does not care to give us hospital, electricity and pipe borne water from the gold they mined in our comunity.We are really in need of an investor whom we shall go into a long time business relationship .
My community in conjunction with the village heads has in their possession this commodity:
QUANTITY....... 120 TO 350 KGS
PURITY............92% or more
QUALITY..........22 or + KARATS.
PRICE............... To be discussed
ORIGIN............... Burkina Faso.
NB) Upon a successful transaction, we will like to purchase the mentioned mining equipment from your country to increase prodction and reduce hard labour. Hence your advice and guidance will be very vital in this area if we can get them from your country.
