Hainan has now gained the right to explore mineral resources in five countries, including Mozambique, Madagascar, Congo, Malawi and Peru.
 
The exploration activity will cover a total area of 1,700 km and the mineral resources which will be studied include zirconium, titanium, gold, copper, iron, molybdenum, and other minerals which are in short supply.
 
With regards to the process of mining, Hainan Provincial Bureau of Geological Exploration paid more attention to the environmental protection recently, which was appreciated by the Nampula Government as the issue of damaging natural environments through mining is an issue of great concern. 
 
It has been revealed that the bureau is now planning to build a titanium-slag smelting plant and titanium pigment processing base in Hainan. All the mineral materials explored at the Mozambique are expected to be transported to Hainan for deep processing. The project will have a capacity to handle 200,000 tons of minerals per year and will have an annual revenue of 2 billion yuan.
 
In addition to the mining exploration cooperation between two cities, the move is also hoped to further promote more exchanges between the senior officials of both countries. At present, a proposal agreement has been signed regarding basic geological investigation cooperation.
