first_imgAureus Mining Company and Aminata and Sons, have entered into a US$90m (Ninety Million) contract for the supply of petroleum products to Aureus Mining New Liberty Gold Mining Project in Grand Cape Mount County.  The contract will run for the lifespan of the mine, which is 8 years. Speaking at the signing ceremony, the General Manager of Aureus Mining Company, Mr. Debar Allen, said Aminata’s petroleum service delivery meets the standard and has demonstrated the capacity to deliver more than any of its competitors in the sector.“It is a pride and joy for Aureus to do this with a Liberian entity because of our belief in local content. We are confident that Aminata can deliver a key component of the project by the provision of fuel over its duration.  This is the third sizable contract in our operation for the duration of the mine; and we are proud that we can enter into this agreement with a Liberian-owned entity.”For his part, the Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy Mr. Patrick Sandolo, said the Aureus Gold Mining project represents “a lot of firsts” in Liberia. He described the project as “the first industrial-sized gold mining operation in Liberia ever, and the first new mining operation in Liberia to commence in 2015. He noted that the contract is also the most significant and the largest that any company in the mining sector has awarded to a Liberian business entity.”According to Minister Sandolo, “the signing of this contract gives us what we have been trying to get, which is that all other companies should remain committed; and also keep their projects on course. We are very pleased and gratified, and we assure all companies in the country of government’s fullest support in their operations.”Chief Executive Officer of Aminata and Sons, Mr. Siaka Toure, thanked the Government of Liberia for creating the enabling environment to allow business entities to freely operate in the country.  He said the signing of the contract has relieved Aureus of the burden of procuring and transporting petroleum products at the mine. He promised that Aminata will construct a tank farm at the mine where the company will be receiving its supplies. He indicated that his company will do everything possible to keep the contract on course throughout the duration of the mine. He thanked Aureus for selecting a Liberian company to supply such a very significant commodity to the project.The Acting Minister of Commerce, Mr. Cyril Allen said it is a good thing to have Liberian companies entering into such a deal for the supply of petroleum products in the mining sector. “We are very proud of Aminata, and we hope that they will live up to the expectations of the deal.”The New Liberty Gold Mines project, owned by Aureus Mining Company has an estimated proven and probable reserve of 924,000 ounces of gold grading 3.4 g/t. When fully operational, this project will provide much needed revenue and employment for Liberians while developing human capacity and business opportunities for Liberian owned Small Medium Enterprises over the duration of the mining operations.  Delivering her annual message to the Fourth Session of the 53rd Legislature, President Sirleaf commended the “impressive work” of the gold mining concessionaire, and urged the lawmakers to “visit the concession site for a personal appreciation of the beneficial results” of the concession agreement they signed. Mr. Allen said the company is delighted over the President’s commendation about their work and that Aureus remains committed to aspects of the Mineral Development Agreement, including its Resettlement Action Plan, which provides for the construction of new and modern homes for employees and residents of the affected communities.He added that the President’s commendation has motivated the company further to living up to all aspects of its agreement.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img0Shares0000Off to a flyer: Jorginho scored on his Premier League debut © AFP / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 11 – Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri got off to a winning Premier League start as new signing Jorginho slotted home coolly from the penalty spot in a 3-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday.Tottenham also made light of discontent over their lack of summer transfer activity by resisting a late Newcastle onslaught to win 2-1 at St James’ Park thanks to goals from Jan Vertonghen and Dele Alli. Richarlison struck twice on debut for 10-man Everton to show he may justify his £50 million price tag and hold highly-fancied Wolves 2-2 on their return to the top flight.And Watford, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace picked up 2-0 wins on the opening weekend of the season.Maurizio Sarri got off to a winning start on his Premier League debut © AFP / Oli SCARFFChelsea have endured a turbulent pre-season with Sarri replacing fellow Italian Antonio Conte less than a month before the campaign got underway.The Londoners also smashed their transfer record and set a new world-record fee for a goalkeeper in splashing 80 million euros  on Kepa Arrizbalaga this week after Thibaut Courtois departed for Real Madrid.“The situation until now has been very difficult. On Monday four players from the World Cup arrived and then on Tuesday another two, so it’s not been easy for me at the moment,” said Sarri, who believes it will take two months for his side to be at their best.But Kepa was rarely troubled in recording a clean sheet as the visitors’ greater quality told at the John Smith’s Stadium after a slow start.“The game was more difficult than the result. If you see the result you think it was a very easy match but in the first half it was very difficult against physical opponents,” said Sarri.Crucially Chelsea have held onto Eden Hazard, but while the Belgian was only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench following his World Cup exertions, N’Golo Kante was thrown straight into the side after starring in Russia for world champions France.Kante has been deployed in a more advanced role due to Jorginho’s arrival and was on the end of Willian’s cross to open the scoring 11 minutes before half-time.Moments later Marcos Alonso was upended inside the area and Jorginho cheekily slotted home after a hop in his run up wrong-footed Ben Hamer.Hazard was introduced for the final 15 minutes and looked keen to make up for lost time as he teed up Pedro Rodriguez to round off the scoring.– Pochettino pleads for unity –Dele Alli got the winner for Tottenham at Newcastle © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYTottenham have had a much quieter summer after becoming the first Premier League side since the transfer window was introduced in 2003 to not make a single signing.But manager Mauricio Pochettino has insisted he is happy just to have retained a host of players who excelled at the World Cup and it was two of them who handed Spurs all three points at Newcastle.Vertonghen and Alli struck either side of Joselu’s equaliser for the Magpies with all three goals coming in the first 18 minutes.“It is important to be strong from the beginning and have belief and convey a positive message,” Pochettino said.“It is important the fans know the players need their help.”– Promoted sides struggle –Debut double: Richarlison struck twice for Everton in a 2-2 draw at Wolves © AFP / Geoff CADDICKAt Molineux, Richarlison quietened criticism of Everton’s splurge to reunite him with former Watford boss Marco Silva as the Brazilian twice put Everton in front.The visitors were reduced to 10 men five minutes before half-time when Phil Jagielka was shown a straight red card and Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez hit back to salvage a point for the hosts.Like Wolves, Fulham earned rave reviews for their summer business, outspending United and City, in signing 12 new players.But there was no instant return on that investment as Jeffrey Schlupp and Wilfried Zaha scored either side of half-time to give Palace a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage.Roberto Pereyra scored twice as Watford were too good for Brighton.Bournemouth were also comfortable victors over promoted Cardiff thanks to goals from Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

first_imgChelsea’s assistant manager Steve Holland says the club are not interested in signing anyone in January – not even Lionel Messi.The Barca master is apparently unhappy in Spain and could be available in a £500million deal but the Chelsea coach says it would be impossible to land the forward and remain within Financial Fair Play rules.Jose Mourinho’s club is one of only a handful in the world who could possibly afford the Argentinean – with some careful accounting – but The Special One’s right-hand man has ruled it out.“Jose has made it clear that in this transfer window nobody stays and nobody goes,” Holland said.“Sometimes a club has to be reactive, but the hope is that nobody stays or leaves. We’re happy with what we have.“Signing Messi [for Chelsea] under FFP is impossible.” 1 Barcelona star Lionel Messi last_img read more

Petr Cech (goalkeeper) 11 11 Watford v Arsenal is live on talkSPORT.Arsenal take on Watford for Saturday’s evening kick off, with Arsene Wenger’s side looking to heap further pressure on Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.Before the international break, the Gunners eased to a 3-0 victory over Manchester United, and should be high in confidence ahead of their to Vicarage Road. Theo Walcott is expected to resume his role as the leading striker, with Olivier Giroud set to continue on the bench.  Meanwhile, the notable absentee from the squad is likely to be Laurent Koscielny. The Frenchman is expected to undergo a fitness test ahead of the game and has a ‘slight chance’ of featuring, according to Wenger. However, even if passed ready for action, he may not be risked for the clash given a crucial Champions League against Bayern Munich is to come next week.Nonetheless, sitting just two points behind City, Wenger won’t hold back against the Hornets. Take a look at our predicted line up by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 5.

first_imgSick thieves are targeting people visiting graveyards.A number of cars have been broken into around the county in recent weeks and belongings stolen.The latest incident took place at the weekend when a woman visiting the graveyard at Drumboe in Stranorlar had her car broken into. The car window was smashed and the woman’s handbag, which contained a large amount of cash, was stolen.In recent months thieves have also targeted people visiting graveyards in Letterkenny, Buncrana and Donegal Town.A Garda source warned people not to leave valuables in cars when they are visiting graveyards.“Thieves have cars under surveillance a lot of the time. A graveyard is the perfect place for a robbery because it’s the last place someone would suspect something like this would happen. “But thieves don’t care who or where they steal from. They observe people and know they are going to be away from their cars for a certain amount of time.“We would ask people not to leave any valuables in their cars when they are visiting graveyards.“If there are not valuables on display then the chances are that people’s cars will not be broken into,” he said.The source said he did not know if the spate of graveyard thefts was part of an organised scam.Ends SICK THIEVES TARGET GRAVEYARD VISITORS was last modified: August 23rd, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

In her suit, Benitez claims that Brody told her in 1999 that her religious beliefs prevented her from helping a homosexual conceive a child by artificial insemination, but that other physicians at the practice would be able to help her. The next year, Benitez said, she was told that both Brody and Fenton were unable to help her because they did not feel comfortable with her sexual orientation. The doctors contend they denied treatment because Benitez and her registered domestic partner of 15 years were not married. But Benitez’s attorneys said she was denied because of her sexual orientation, not her marital status. An attorney for a gay rights group said the decision would be appealed to the California Supreme Court. “We fear this decision is going to worsen the confusion in the minds of the public about whether you can legally discriminate in the name of religion,” said Jennifer Pizer, attorney for Lambda Legal Defense. “The bottom line is that you should not be able to treat patients in a discriminatory way.” The case appears to be the first in the country in which a gay or lesbian patient was allowed to sue doctors over charges that treatment was denied based on sexual orientation.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN DIEGO – A state appeals court ruled that two fertility doctors had the right to refuse to artificially inseminate a lesbian based on her marital status because it would have violated their religious beliefs. Friday’s ruling reversed a lower court decision that Drs. Christine Brody and Douglas Fenton could not use religion as a defense against a lawsuit filed by Guadalupe Benitez. The panel found that the doctors were within their rights because they based their decision on Benitez’s unmarried status and that discrimination based on marital status is not prohibited by state law. Benitez, 33, sued the doctors and their small practice in Vista in 2001, claiming their actions violated California’s anti-discrimination laws. last_img read more
