    Sidon Receives Approval for High-Grade Gold Prospect in Tanzania



    Sidon International Resources Corp. /quotes/comstock/11v!sd (CA:SD 0.09, -0.01, -10.53%) (FRANKFURT: SY7)(PINK SHEETS: SIDNF) has received final approval from the TSX Venture Exchange in regards to its high-grade gold prospect, the "Morogoro East Gold (MEG)" property in the Morogoro area of Tanzania.

    Company president Kamal Alawas states: "This is great news for the future growth of Sidon. Rarely does a company of our small market capitalization be afforded an opportunity to be able to acquire a property of such potential in what can only be described as one of the world's last potential world-class undeveloped gold districts.

    In the 1990s Tanzania only had approximately one million ounces of known gold reserves, now it has over 50 million ounces of reserves, placing it in third place in the African gold-producing countries behind only South Africa and Ghana. Considering it has at least five world-class gold deposits, Tanzania has yet to be subjected to serious and prolonged exploration by modern methods.

    Few junior resource companies have had the ability to become involved in this expanding gold district and management is excited about what the future development of this prospect will provide for the growth of Sidon.

    Seeing how the market embraced Canaco Resources Inc. after their recent discoveries in Tanzania, it is clear that there is growing market awareness for this emerging gold district in Africa. Couple this with the anticipated work program to start immediately, it is clear that Sidon is entering a significant period of corporate growth right now."

    Kamal Alawas, President
    We seek safe harbour.

    Neither the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. nor its Regulation Service Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange Inc.) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this press release.

    Shamba la bibi. Ninahisi hatari kubwa miaka si mingi; vita vya Kongo, Siera Leone, Ivory Coast, Angola nk kwa sehemu kubwa vilitokana na wananchi kutambua kuwa mali asili (madini) vinaliwa na wachache nao wakaunda vikundi vinavyotafuta kufaidi pia. Kuna hatari kubwa kama staili ya CCM itaendelea.

    Tatizo hapa ni kuwa serekali yetu inaona dhahabu ni mali ya wageni sisi tuendelee kulima kwa jembe la mkono ili tuendelee. Yanahitajika mapinduzi ya kuweza kujua kuwa rasilimali za nchi ni mali ya wananchi na hazina budi kutumiwa vyema kuwaletea maendeleo.

    Very good idea.
    uamuzi wa kuyaacha madini alikuwa nalo Mwalimu Nyerere lakini wajuaji walipoingia madarakani wakaona nia wazo la kipuuzi.
    wakafanya wanaloweza waohatimaye wachache tu ndio wanaonufaika nayo.

    Hiyo ndiyo Tanzania, zaidi ya uijuavyo. Halafu bado CCM wanatafuta excuse ya umasikini wa nchi. Nawashangaa sana hawa watu.

    Ndipo tutakubaliana kuwa Nyerere alipozuia uchimbaji huo hadi taifa liwe tayari, alikuwa sahihi na alikuwa kaona matatizo hayo. Rulipopta viongozi myopic, ndipo taifa likageuka shamba la bibi, na walaji wetu wanawapenda sana viongozi tunapata.

    Nakumbuka mwaka 2001 nilikutana na jamaa hapo Dar wakiwa wanapanga mkakati wa kuhakikisha kuwa Kikwete anachaguliwa kuwa the next president (mwaka 2005) kwa vile walikuwa wanajua kuwa hatavuruga mipango yao ya kibishara kwa muda mrefu; mipango hiyo ilikuwa ya kuendelea kukomba nchi hii, unfortunately.

    International Students Week (ISWiT) patron Reginald Mengi, who is also IPP Executive Chairman, addresses conference at the University of Dar es Salaam yesterday. (Photo: Khalfan Said)

    Tanzania is endowed with a rich abundance of natural and other resources and saying it is one of the poorest countries in the world is wrong and misleading, IPP Executive Chairman Reginald Mengi said yesterday.

    He said that, if for lack for a better description, the poverty tag should go to Tanzanians “because that will make them fight harder using the resources at their disposal to break free from the shackles of poverty”.
    Mengi made the remarks in an address in Dar es Salaam to university students attending a conference forming part of launch of the 2010 International Students Week in Tanzania (ISWiT), of which he is the Patron.

    This year’s theme for the week is “The voice of young intellectuals in constructing Africa anew: Come, listen, think and act.”
    The thrust of the annual event this time around revolves around devising strategies to meet the wide array of daunting challenges Africa is faced with.

    The IPP Executive Chairman specifically called on the World Bank to desist from associating Tanzania with poverty, noting that it would make more sense for people to refer to the country’s riches “instead of singing the carol that it is the second poorest country in the world”.

    He noted that students had ideas that could help ease the abject poverty many people in Africa were languishing in, adding: “It is a shame and a pity that, even with the abundant resources the continent is blessed with, it is still regarded as poor. It is incumbent upon you to act on this situation as appropriate but with a sense of urgency.”

    Mengi explained that it would be futile to talk of a new Africa in a situation where there was no rule of law or good governance.

    “As part of our new development strategy, we’re emphasizing transparency, accountability and a strong civil society - the kinds of reform that can help unleash transformational change,” he added.
    He said he saw corruption as the biggest enemy of development since no meaningful gains could be realised where corruption was so rampant that it could easily be assimilated into young and fresh minds.

    The IPP Executive Chairman warned against the likelihood of Tanzania’s youth learning from the thefts and other crimes committed by their seniors.

    “Who among you is courageous and bold enough to question their parents about their ill-gotten wealth? Who’s going to break from the chain of corruption? When are you going to stop going the way of corrupt parents? If you remain quiet, you will be part and parcel of that corruption,” he pointed out, to deafening applause from the floor.

    He said the fact that the incidence of cyber crime was on the rise worldwide was a clear indication that the youth had learned from the criminal activities of their seniors, most of them computer illiterate, some growing into even worse computer-aided criminals.

    He accordingly advised the students to include deliberations on ways to break the vicious circles of poverty and corruption.
    Mwanaidi Sinare Maajar, Tanzania’s Ambassador to the United States, meanwhile said it was very much in the interest of the world to help Africa out of poverty.

    She said the theme of the conference underscored what President Barack Obama did last week when he invited 115 young African leaders to the US “for an evaluation of how they see Africa’s future over the next half century and to help craft innovative solutions to regional challenges”.
    “Working with their American counterparts and US government officials enabled the delegates to share their insights on key conference themes of youth empowerment, good governance and economic opportunity,” noted the envoy.

    “The youth are the heirs of the independence generation that we are celebrating today. Because of the sacrifice made by your parents, you were born in independent African states,” she added.

    She explained that just as the achievements of the last 50 years inspired the continent’s young generation, “the work you do today will inspire Africans for generations to come”. She said the youth can do a lot to influence policy, adding that leadership was about “analysing challenges and using intellectual minds to generate new visions”.

    Speaking on behalf US Ambassador to Tanzania, Jasmin White said encouraging Africa’s youth to discuss issues leading to dialogue and solutions to problems was crucial to helping the continent move forward.
    White, a Thomas Pickering Fellow in the Public Affairs Section of the US Embassy in Dar es Salaam, said the theme of the conference was in consonance with President Obama belief that the youth hold the key to Africa’s future.

    “It will be up to you young people full of talent and imagination to build the Africa for the next 50 years,” she noted.

    ISWiT president Jokate Mwegelo had earlier said Tanzania’s youth acknowledged the fact that they too had the duty of bringing about positive changes in Africa.

    Dignitaries at the conferences included Democractic Republic of Congo’s Ambassador Juma Khalfan Mpango and Zambia’s Deputy High Commissioner, Patrick Ngoma.

    Hi Jf members,lets share the little I have in my mind on Why we are Poor?

    for me i thing we are poor may be becouse:-
    1.We lack attitude
    2.we lack the will to follow and teach principles of working of rich and developed societies.

    there fore we are in this state becouse:-
    1.We want to take advantage over every thing and every one
    2.We see some thing done wrong and say-"LET IT BE"

    We should have SPIRITED and ATTITUDE

    only then we will be able to change our PRESENT STATE
