LONDON, Feb 25 (Reuters) - Niron Metals, headed by British Conservative politician Mick Davis, will develop Guinea’s Zogota iron ore deposit, a spokesman for BSG Resources, which previously held its mining rights, said on Monday.
Output from the mine will be transported by rail and exported via a port in neighbouring Liberia, spokesman Bobby Morse said.
Guinea’s government has previously stated that ore must be exported via the West African nation’s own ports. (Reporting by Barbara Lewis; writing by Joe Bavier; editing by Jason Neely)
