REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR THE ENGAGEMENT OF A CONSTRUCTION FIRM TO EXECUTE CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE IN MINES LAND FOR A BRINE DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

1. INTRODUCTION
The Federal Government of Nigeria has approved the development of salt deposits in Ebonyi State and the Nigeria brine belt situated in the Benne Trough.

2. BACKGROUND
The proposed infrastructure will increase the viability for a salt operation in Ebonyi State, specifically in the vicinity of the Okposi and Uburu Lakes. These lakes are located within the lower Benue Trough region, hosting three major brine fields: Abakaliki, Keana-Awe, and Mutum Daya. The chemical profile of brine collected in the lower region, on average, is approximately equivalent to that of seawater.

3. OVERVIEW OF THE SOLID MINERALS DEVELOPMENT FUND
The Solid Minerals Development Fund (“SMDF” or the “Fund”) is a Government-owned Fund established to drive investments in Nigeria’s mining sector. The Fund was established in 2007 by the Federal Government of Nigeria through the 2007 Minerals and Mining Act. SMDF is a unique government funding vehicle focused on driving critical interventions that maximize the recovery and impact of capital deployed. One of the main objectives of the Solid Minerals Development Fund is to provide infrastructure in mines land

4. SCOPE OF WORK
The proposed critical infrastructure involves the construction of a retaining wall along the shores of the brine lake to support the commercial viability of an integrated salt exploration and production project.
