Seventy Ninth™ Resources is one of the largest developers of natural resources in West Africa.

Measured by number of concessions under development, exploration and management


Enriching lives, creating value.

As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and looks to rebuild in more efficient and sustainable ways, the demand for natural resources, minerals and precious metals has never been greater. Metals are also playing a key role in the transition towards cleaner energy and precious metals such as gold, are an integral part of industrial processes, electronics and chemical applications. To meet this demand, the efficient mining of minerals and metals must increase significantly. Successful management of mineral supply chains therefore, presents one of the most striking commercial opportunities of the next decade. ​

West Africa occupies a unique place in that minerals supply chain. For example, the Republic of Guinea has rich Iron Ore, Gold and Diamond reserves. It also possesses almost a quarter of the world’s known Bauxite reserves. Bauxite is the primary source of aluminium, and Bauxite-derived aluminium has a range of different uses, including essential components for solar panels, in vehicles and in aerospace technology, as well playing a key role in construction. ​

At the Seventy Ninth Group, our aim is to unlock the potential of Guinea, helping it to meet the growing demand for minerals globally, by identifying the valuable resources that people across the world need. We have been operating in the natural resources sector since 2011, and we use our decades of experience gained within the real estate industry to identify undervalued assets that can be turned into exceptional commercial opportunities.

Working with global leaders.

We’ve appointed SRK Exploration and Consulting, recognised in the industry as the ‘gold standard’ of mineral exploration. SRK is a world leader in interpreting integrated data sets for target generation, including aeromagnetic, radio-metric, gravity, landsat and seismic data. Its resource estimates use the best available methods based on rigorous data analysis and sound geological assessment of ore systems, helping to provide us with a clear understanding of reliability and risk at all stages of our exploration operating model.
