– welcomes Manganese mining company in area Leader of the Opposition, Brigadier David Granger has expressed disappointment at the snail’s pace of development in Region One, which is bigger than Trinidad and Tobago but does not even have a commercial bank.These sentiments were shared at the headquarters of Reunion Manganese Inc. (RMI) in Matthews Ridge, Region One on Friday where several prominent personalities visited the company to receive a firsthand account of the mineral company’s operations.“We have a situation where the grass is growing and the horse is starving.” Granger said.Leader of the Opposition, Brigadier David GrangerHe said A Partnership of National Unity welcomes the resurrection of the Manganese Mining Company.Adding that there are serious deficiencies of skills and education in Region One, Granger observed that of the 15 geologists employed at Reunion Manganese, only two are Guyanese. The Opposition leader also spoke of the issues facing the national university which is supposed to be generating the requisite skills needed for the various fields in the mining sectors and other technical areas.“The University is being strangled for funds and being incapable of producing the types of technicians needed to develop the mineral sectors such as bauxite, Boston Celtics Jerseys, manganese, gold and diamond and to develop our timber and natural resources.”Adding that this is not just an opportunity to produce manganese, Granger said a holistic approach is needed in developing each sector while also looking at the education and employment systems in place for the development of resources and people of Guyana.In rebuttal, Minister of Natural Resources and the Environment Robert Persaud said the government is moving to the next stage of developing a mining school because of the demand in mining activities.“Government is pushing for the establishment of the mining school….we have started work with our partners in Canada in terms of establishing this in Linden at the Technical Institute…we are also looking at the facility at Omai for the practical demonstration aspect…so we want to start training our miners in a way so that they can better perform their activities, ” Minister Persaud said.“We want to work with the small miners, giving them the capacity so that they can be engaged in their livelihood in an environmentally friendly way.”In addition, he said Government has been looking at new technologies for the mining industry, so that miners can have better recovery of minerals, while putting less pressure on the environment.While the manganese operation is slowly taking off, the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) in Region One has expressed concern that the RDC’s involvement in the project is limited. This has led to some misinformation being peddled in the area, leaving residents very uneasy.To this end, the Minister called on the RMI to reach out to the local government body and bring the community onboard. He reminded that, “at the end of the day it’s about Guyana and all Guyanese benefitting from projects such as this.”This call was reinforced by Minister within the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development, Norman Whittaker, who emphasised the need for an open line of communication between the community and the manganese company to be maintained.The Matthews Ridge manganese project is located in northwest Guyana, in and around the former Matthews Ridge and Pipiani mines, 260 km northwest of Georgetown.Manganese ore was mined from 1960 to 1968 by Union Carbide and exported via a railroad and a fluvial port. Mining was done on five of a series of nine hills extending for 12 km and striking northeastern-southwestern. The manganese-bearing sequence is known to have an overall strike extent of 40 km and remains largely unexplored.In late 2010, the Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Reunion Manganese Inc., obtained four exploration licences covering an area of 45, 729 acres and embarked on an aggressive exploration program consisting of mechanized trenching, diamond drilling and ground geophysics with the objective to outline a NI 43-101 compliant resource.Manganese is the fourth largest metal consumed in the world, behind iron, aluminum and copper. It is a key component in steel and iron production with no viable substitute, and is in short supply. (Rabindra Rooplall)

For the past five months heavy-duty machinery carrying building materials for housing development behind Herstelling and Farm, NFL Jerseys Authentic China, East Bank Demerara, have been traversing GuySuCo Housing Scheme main entrance road effectively destroying its surface.GuySuCo Housing Scheme situated in Herstelling, East Bank Demerara appears to be a relatively small housing establishment but it stretches to Mocha and more than 75 percent of the lots are occupied.A truck carrying building materials traversing the road6Kaieteur News visited the community yesterday and spoke with some residents who have been fighting to maintain the loam surfaced road. Amidst the depressions, potholes and slush there are manmade drainage lines and a huge pile of dirt on the structure.According to a male resident, heavy-duty machines once traversed Farm Housing Scheme entrance, neighbouring the Bougainvillea Housing Development, to access the housing development areas but the internal roads are now destroyed.“Is trucks taking building materials for them new housing development behind we…The weight of the trucks destroy the roads… big deep waves there…so now they come and use our road, ” the man said.The man said that Dipcon Engineering Services Ltd that is executing works on the East Bank Demerara Public Road is storing equipment and building material along the shoulders of the scheme’s entrance road. As such, the construction company constantly maintains the front section of the road and has promised to upgrade it once their works are completed.Another resident said that he was forced to dig parts of the road to allow the water to drain. In addition, Dipcon was kind enough to place dirt in one of the huge potholes. The residents hope this would serve as a deterrent to big trucks.The residents want the road to be repaired and the trucks to stop traversing it. While upgrading works are being executed on the structure they also want their streets to be upgraded.According to a resident, last year R&B Construction upgraded one of the community roads to Double Bitumen Treatment Surface. Already the road has potholes and has sunk in certain sections. The resident was unable to say if the project was carried out by the Ministry of Housing or the Neighbourhood Democratic Council.The man said that something seemed fishy about that project since the community has two streets and only one was upgraded. The other is in a terrible condition forcing all the vehicles to use the first street.

Head of State Bharrat Jagdeo says that he does not see the Value Added Tax as a burden and as such, there is no need to revise it with a view to lower the rate.This disclosure was made during a recent press briefing held by Jagdeo who said that the fact that the VAT collection consistently increases is just as a result of widening of the tax net.The President said that the increase has been realised also because of the better performance of the economy over the years.He spoke of the fact that the money is being invested in the social services, Atlanta Hawks Jerseys, pointing to fact that Government has been paying the water bills for pensioners and they have continued to do so.Jagdeo said that the administration has been making investments, speaking of the new hospitals being built.The President made reference to the fact that come next year there will be some 300additional doctors returning to Guyana and that will increase the wages bill.He said that they did not believe VAT was a burden, pointing to the fact that with the advent of the new taxing system it eliminated five other taxes.Minister of Finance, Dr Ashni Singh recently tabled in the National Assembly the mid-year report for Guyana, which stated that the Value Added Tax continued to skyrocket and continues to rake in beyond the projections.For the first half of this year, Value Added and excise tax collections in the first half of the year amounted to $23.2 billion, this is an increase of 9.1 percent over the corresponding period in the previous year.Opposition politicians have long complained that VAT is a burden that should be revised with a view to reduce the rate.
