SION Limited (SL) is a registered and Licensed Gold Exporter in Sierra Leone. We ensure the export of Gold is done through the proper and legal channel recognised by the Government of Sierra Leone Gold and Diamond Office and Ministry of Mines & Minerals Resources. SION takes pride of working with the recognised Government institutions to ensure that your Gold Export is unscathed and good (Gold) gets to its final destination.
At SION we ensure the gold dust is cleaned up with acid, burnt, XRF tested before it is being smelted by our Assaying Team of Expert. This process will help us to know exactly what is being smelted. Smelting is a process that involves heating and melting and also transform the Gold dust or nuggets to bars. SION’s State-of-the-Earth Gold Testing Laboratory is powered with advance modern-day Gold Laboratory Equipment designed to detect all kinds (bars, nuggets or bars) of gold. At SION our independent laboratory is unmatched throughout West Africa.
SION has Gold buying offices in Bumbuna, Kamakwe, Koinadugu, and Kono. SION buys gold directly from local community miners and village resident gold dealers who willingly do business with us. In an effort to maximize and help participate in community empowerment and development, SION in partnership with local Paramount Chiefs has community driven gold mining cooperatives
We also serve as an independent gold export service for institutions or people that are not sure of the process or how it can be done. We ensure your mind is at ease through advice and openness we exhibit throughout the process. Our aim is also to ensure people are not duped or taken advantage of for the wrong reasons. At SION we support you to go through the official government channel and export your business.
We will support the miners with gold mining equipments to ensure the mining is carried out in a conducive and proper manner. They will also be provided with food items to support the work they do. This will be done with the support of the paramount chiefs in their communities who are also custodian of the land
We aim to ensure gold mining communities are supported in our own little way. For so long we have seen situations in which mining communities have been left in deplorable conditions with little or nothing to show for it. With SION and with monies realised, we aim to give back to these communities through the provision of roads, wells, community center etc which will help improve the lives of the people and develop their communities.
