Ivanhoe Liberia is the sister company to the Société des Mines de Fer de Guinée (SMFG), the company studying the development of the iron ore deposits of the Guinean Nimba Mountains. See www.smfg.com.
Currently, the specific institutional and legal arrangements for the expansion and operations of the rail infrastructure from upper Nimba County, Liberia, to a port on the Liberian coast are under negotiation. This site will be updated as decisions are made.
Ivanhoe Liberia is owned 100% by High Power Exploration (HPX, a company registered in the USA).
The operations of Ivanhoe Liberia are backed by a political risk insurance policy issued by the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA), a member of the World Bank Group. As such, the company adheres to MIGA’s Performance Standards (see here), which are functionally identical to the IFC’s Performance Standards. These Performance Standards represent the most widely recognised international benchmark for responsible corporate performance.
