Mining Company SEMS Exploration Enjoying West African Opportunity Boom Featured in February's Edition of African Business Review

NORWICH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2012) - SEMS Exploration has come a long way since it was established in 2002, at a time which Managing Director Simon Meadows Smith describes as a "fairly low point" in the mineral exploration cycle of West Africa.

Yet despite a tough beginning, SEMS Exploration is now reaping the rewards of a booming exploration industry in the region. Initially operating out of a single office in Accra, Ghana, the company now has four other offices across West Africa in Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Mauritania and Liberia.

"We grew from a collection of like-minded exploration geologists into the technical services company we are today," explains Meadows Smith.

"Our core business is to support new investors entering the mineral industry in West Africa, from the first point of contact right through to defining resources and reserves."

SEMS Exploration also officers a top-end technical consultancy for such recognised names in the industry as AngloGold Ashanti, Newmont Mining and Goldfields.

Meadows Smith says that one of the main reasons why the company stands out from its competitors is its unique West African base, which other companies cannot claim to have.
