Chipindo — The exploration of iron and gold in the municipalities of Jamba and Chiping will substantially promote the eastern and northern regions of southern Huila province.

This was said Wednesday in Chipindo by Huila governor, João Marcelino Tyipingui.

According to him, Chipindo will benefit from these exploration projects as the Government is considering to rehabilitate the roads and build dams along the Cunene river basin.

João Marcelino Tyipingui explained that the Government will build two dams in the area, particularly in the localities of Jamba Ya Mina 1 and 2, which will ensure the supply of power to the municipalities of Kuvango, Chipindo and Jamba.

As he stated, when the Government planned to restart the iron and gold exploration project in the region, it took into account the development of the populations hence the region developing in a sustainable way.

According to him, the exploration of iron and gold is in advanced stage, with very good prospects for next year.

He also praised the strong will and entrepreneurial spirit of the people of Chipindo.

The municipality of Chipindo is 456 kilometres to the north of Lubango, southern Huila province, with a population estimated at more than 120,000 inhabitants.
