REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST FOR THE ENGAGEMENT OF A TECHNICAL CONSULTANCY FIRM FOR AN AGRO-MINERAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

1. INTRODUCTION
The Federal Government of Nigeria has approved the development of mining, and production and agro-minerals for the fertilizer industry. A key factor in agricultural productivity is yield improvement, and one way of achieving this is using cheap and readily available fertilizers. The widespread occurrence and small-scale production of agro-minerals in Nigeria indicate the potential to meet demand and supply gaps and boost agricultural production.

2. BACKGROUND
The Solid Minerals Development Fund and its partners plan to undertake the exploration, mining, and production of a critical agro-mineral for the local market and subsequent exports

3. OVERVIEW OF THE SOLID MINERALS DEVELOPMENT FUND
The Solid Minerals Development Fund (“SMDF” or the “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.
