The UK-listed miner announced on 8 March that it is redeveloping an initial 100kW hydropower facility at its Sahamamy mining site that was last operated in 2005 and initiating further studies for hydropower across the Sahamamy and Vatomina operations, which are located about 70km south of the eastern port of Tamatave, as part of a sustainable mining strategy.
