History of mining exploration

True to its original missions, OMNIS ‘mining research has focused on the exploration of radioactive and strategic elements, including uranium, ilmenite, and rare earth elements. He also carried out exploration work on coal, platinoids and quartz, which at the time were considered strategic minerals.

Period 1976 to 2006

Since 1976, most of OMNIS geologists and prospectors had worked alongside organizations, as seconded employees, for exploration and technical assistance work, namely: the Federal Institute of Geosciences and Resources Natural Resources (BGR) (Government of Germany), of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), V / O Zarubezhgeologia (Government of the USSR), MINATOME, owned by PECHINEY and later by CFP / TOTAL (France ), O'Priess & Co (GmgH Germany), the Bureau of Geological and Mining Research (BRGM) (Government of France), Compagnie Générale des Matières Nucléaires (COGEMA) (Government of France), National Mineral Development Corp Ltd (Government of India) and QIT Fer & Titane from RTZ (Canada and Australia), Vuna Group &Madagascar Consolidated Mining (MCM) (UK) and finally NASSCO for various mining substances (see table below)

Period 2006 - 2008

During this period, actions to promote mining exploration and development undertaken by OMNIS resulted in cooperation in partnership with the following companies in terms of uranium substance exploration: URAMAD SA, PAM Atomique, Madagascar Mineral Field Energy, RED Island Resources, KOZONE Natural Resources, PENCARI Mining, Blue Sun Mining SA, PETANA, PETRA Madagascar SARL, DRACHE, Asian Finance Corporation, MINVEST Madagascar, VARUN Iinternational, AVANA, KORES. The Office's cooperation with Qit Fer & Titane or QMM (Qit Mineral Madagascar) has been maintained for the exploitation of the ilmenite of Fort-Dauphin as well as that with Vuna Group and Madagascar Consolidated Mining (MCM) for exploration. the Sakoa coal deposit.

Period 2009 to 2015

During this period, actions to promote mining exploration and development undertaken by OMNIS resulted in cooperation in partnership with the following companies in terms of uranium substance exploration: URAMAD SA, PAM Atomique, Madagascar Mineral Field Energy, RED Island Resources, KOZONE Natural Resources, PENCARI Mining, Blue Sun Mining SA, PETANA, PETRA Madagascar SARL, DRACHE, Asian Finance Corporation, MINVEST Madagascar, VARUN Iinternational, AVANA, KORES. The Office's cooperation with Qit Fer & Titane or QMM (Qit Mineral Madagascar) has been maintained for the exploitation of the ilmenite of Fort-Dauphin as well as that with Vuna Group and Madagascar Consolidated Mining (MCM) for exploration. the Sakoa coal deposit.
