= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

MAPUTO - Brazil's Mining giant Vale said on Monday it expects to start exporting coal from its Moatize mine in Mozambique in 2011. Vale CE Officer Roger Agnelli told Reuters the mine will eventually produce 40-million metric tonnes of coal a year. Vale, the world's second-biggest miner and the biggest iron-ore producer won the government tender in 2004 and paid $123 million for license to produce coal in Moatize.

In the wake of the global financial crisis, Africa is being positioned as a safe haven for investors by an unlikely quarter: British bankers and analysts. Investor interest in Africa has been boosted by views that the continent will be more resilient if the world slides into a recession. "We see Africa as the final financial frontier to be conquered," says Standard Chartered MD and head of global markets for Africa, Fred Lee. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.
