The movement of ore trains have increased rapidly, since Mittal began mining “Mount Gangra”, one of the virgin mountains within the concession area. Some of the Liberian mine workers, who asked not want to be named, are among those worrying about the current escalation of mining operations at the newly opened Mount Gangra. There, according to them, iron ore mined from that mountain is 70% pure ore, that doesn’t require washing before shipment. He said ArcerlorMittal has laid off many employees on grounds that the world market price of iron ore has dropped drastically, making it unprofitable to continue mining. Yet, the company has intensified ore production and are even exporting ever increasing volume of iron ore which, in his opinion, is self contradictory.

Commissioner Reeves’ men at the Bo Waterside border are especially to be commended for their efficiency and watchfulness. These Sierra Leoneans had absolutely no difficulty reentering Liberia, because their passports and other travel documents showed the departure stamp. Right now there are many Ghanaians, Guineans, Sierra Leoneans and people of other nationalities engaged in illegal mining in the St. Paul River near Haindii in the Fuama Chiefdom of Lower Bong County. Liberia is a rich country and it is clear that there are many who want to come to, live and prosper in this land of liberty. Liberians, we say to you once again, AWAKE!
