DETERGENT MANUFACTURING
Description of Project
The Ministry of Trade and Industry commissioned a feasibility study into the establishment of a detergent manufacturing plant in the country. The plant will manufacture dish washing products, clothes washing detergents and household cleaning agents. The study has shown that such a plant is viable if the right skilled labour is employed, the right quality is produced and that there is reliability of supply. The Ministry is therefore looking for interested investors to undertake this project. It is envisaged that such a project will reduce dependency on imports and create employment opportunities for the locals.

MINING - BLACK RANGE GRAPHITE PROJECT
Description of Project
The Project Promoters would like to set up a processing plant for black range graphite. According to preliminary studies, large disseminated flake graphite deposit is hosted by strongly weathered sillimanite‐muscovite cordierite and quartz‐feldspar‐graphite gneisses of the Sukses formation. The graphite member is located in the core zone of a broad overturned anti‐form. The grade and tonnage of the graphite deposit was estimated using a 20 per cent carbon cut‐off. Calculations were based on percussion drilling (4478 m) and 61 diamond drill holes (4125 m). Tonnage estimates using Section polygon method indicate 12.46 million tons ore with a grade of 4.63 CGR per cent. Tonnage estimates using block Kriging indicate 4.21 million tons ore with a grade of 4.21 CGR per cent.

SANDMAP NORTH GOLD PROJECTS
Description of project
Since the discovery of gold at Navachab, Karibib/Usakos area has been the centre of gold exploration. A sample of limonite sampled from Sandmap North assayed 18.6 g/t Au. Additional sampling revealed the presence of a 2500m long zone of auriferous, ferruginious and jarositic schist, ferruginous quartz veins, gossan stringers and zones of alterations. Ore mineral include native gold, lollingite arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite and galena. Current reserves are estimated at 254 000 tons at an average grade of 5g/t. Estimate is based on the subvertical/steep dipping ore body and calculation to the 100 m level. The promoters are therefore looking for potential technical partners to continue with further exploration work and determine the feasibility of establishing a full scale gold mining company.

ENERGY - UTILIZATION OF INVADER BUSH FOR ELECTRICITY GENERATION AND OTHER WOOD RELATED PRODUCTS
Broad Description of Project
Out of the total land area of Namibia, more than 26 million hectares are encroached with invader bush. This phenomenon causes major financial losses in the livestock sector. Bush encroachment caused the farming land to lose much of its livestock carrying capacity. As a result, it is strongly believed that over the last 30‐50 years, livestock numbers in the commercial farming area has decreased by 2‐3 times. It has also been established that the water table dropped drastically in the bush encroached areas. The overall financial loss per annum was calculated to be over N$ 700 million.
Attempts to remove unwanted bushes from the farming land were found to be very expensive. Hence, it is believed that the removal of unwanted bushes should be linked to some form of financial and economic products from these bushes in order to not only pay for the removal cost, but also to attract more investment in the bush utilization and create more jobs. This will not only result into job creation from removing the bush, but it will create job opportunities in the electricity generation sector and manufacturing sector, but will also will have a direct influence on livestock numbers and contribute to farm jobs.
PROJECT OBJECTIVES
The Project will have multiple objectives:
  • Clearing undesirable bushes from farming land
  • Electricity production
  • Production of wood based products such as wood chips for chip boards, firewood etc.
  • To increase grazing capacity and thereby beef production in bush encroached areas
  • Create more jobs, specifically targeting thousands of youth

Project Requirements

  • Establishment of power plants for the production of 20 to 100 MW
  • Provide logistical mechanisms to harvest and transport the raw materials from the bush to the plant
  • Subsidize the electricity price for consumers to be able to afford electricity

Project Outputs

  • Woody species on farmland are brought to acceptable ratios with other uses such as grass
  • Electricity produced from the bushes
  • Wood chips are converted into board chips for commercial use

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TRUCK STOPS ALONG CORRIDORS PROJECT
Description of Project
Truck Stops is a place, usually just off a highway, where truck drivers can get fuel, food and drinks and, sometimes, a bed, shower and basic supplies. Long distance roads as in the case of the Walvis Bay Corridors provides discomfort for truck drivers as it requires truck drivers to drive long distances without having proper and structured facilitates in between or within major towns. The need therefore exists to establish truck stops along major corridors in Namibia and the SADC Region which could serve truck drivers:
