In a ceremony held in Bejaia province, Minister of Energy Mohamed Arkab marked a significant milestone with the commencement of the Tala Hamza zinc-lead deposit project by laying its foundation stone. This initiative signifies a crucial step towards leveraging the region’s mineral wealth for economic progress.

Addressing attendees, Minister Arkab provided assurances to landowners affected by the project, stating that the compensation process for expropriated lands was underway and nearing completion. He affirmed, “The process is underway, and we are nearing its conclusion. Landowners will be compensated very soon.” The Tala Hamza mining project, a collaboration between Algeria and Australia, aims to exploit the zinc and lead reserves in the deposit. Minister Arkab stressed that this partnership would significantly enhance the country’s mining production, generating economic value. He also emphasized the commitment to environmental considerations and sustainable development throughout the project’s lifecycle.

Minister Arkab highlighted the project’s current stage of implementation, following the completion of all technical feasibility studies and the receipt of necessary authorizations. The strategic partnership with Australia signifies broader global collaboration in Algeria’s efforts to expand its mining sector.
