Our Projects

We are committed to excellence and have demonstrated our capabilities with the excavation and extraction of minerals in the Nampala open pit project, as well as the construction phase of the mine. We have recently completed the construction phase of the new Komana gold mining site as well.

A few of our major projects are described below:

The Hummingbird Project At Komana With ‘Societe Des Mines De Komana’ (Smk)

The Yanfolila gold mine, located in southern Mali, is a high-quality, low-cost open pit mining operation that produced its first gold in December 2017. The mine is located in Yanfolila Circle near the Guinean border.

During the construction phase of the new mining project, IMS had the privilege to build the access roads to the mine and plants (36 km). We also conducted the brushing and cleaning of the open pit area for approximately 40ha.

IMS excavated, blasted and transported over 200,000 cubic meters of laterite during the construction of the Tailing Storage Facility (TSF). We also installed the platform for the installation of electrical systems. Lastly, we completed the deep excavation of the foundation for the structure of the ROM wall and other services by client request.

The Nampala SA Project

Nampala project includes the Mininko Exploration License covering 62 square kilometers.

It is located approximately 57 km North of the city of Sikasso and 21 km south of the village of Niéna, which is accessible via the Nampala access road. IMS is the main subcontractor of the Nampala mine since 2013. Our work includes mining and excavation, mineral transportation, earth movement, and mineral stock management.

During the construction phase, IMS built the Tailing Storage Facility (TSF), access roads, and mining infrastructures. We also completed other civil engineering projects as needed. As of today, IMS excavates and transports more than 14,000 tons of ore minerals from the open pit to the processing plant on a permanent basis. With the introduction of newly acquired equipment, IMS plans to excavate and transport over 20,000 tons of ore minerals daily.

Construction Project for Djenné Threshold Bridge Dam

In May 2009, the African Development Bank approved funding for an irrigation dam/weir to be built on the Bani near Soala, a village within the commune situated 12 km south of Djenné.

The dam is one element in a 6-year 33.6 billion CFA franc (66 million USD) program that also includes the building of a dam on the near Kourouba and the extension of the area irrigated by the Talo dam. It will allow the “controlled flooding” of 14,000 ha of the Pondori floodplain (on the left bank of the river to the south of Djenné) to allow the cultivation of rice and the irrigation of an additional 5000 ha for growing ‘floating grass’ for animal feed.

It is a dam-bridge of vital importance for the populations of the city of Djenné. Once completed, the dam-bridge will facilitate river crossing and the irrigation of more than 20,000 ha of agricultural land.

As the main subcontractor for this project, IMS had to build cofferdams for the diversion of the rivers flow with more than 100,000 cubic meters of excavated and carried laterite, and the pouring of more than 100,000 cubic meters of concrete, within the contracted timeframe.

We carried out this project with rigor and dynamism while preserving the eco system in the immediate riverbank. Even though we had to deviate the river flow, we made sure the local fishermen and their livelihood activities were not disturbed by our actions, to the great satisfaction of our partner and local communities.

The demolition phase of the cofferdam will resume soon and IMS plans to move over 300,000 cubic meters of sand and laterite from the riverbank out to the shore, allowing the river to flow normally in its natural path. Our environmentalists are actively working with our clients and local government making sure that our impact is minimized after completion.
