The Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) of the Kurdistan Regional Government-Iraq (KRG) invites expressions of interest from qualified international mining companies for the ‘Mineral Exploration & Investment in the Kurdistan Region-Iraq’.
According to the available data, historical reports, and recent investigations, the MNR has identified 7 prospective blocks for investment. All 7 blocks are believed to hold sufficient mineral deposits for the purposes of commercial extraction.

Interested parties that demonstrate requisite capability and alignment with the MNR’s requirements will be invited to submit proposals for one or more blocks.
Those chosen parties will be asked to sign a Confidentially Agreement with the MNR, after which they will receive a comprehensive data package pertaining to the 7 prospective blocks that have been identified. The package will include a GIS database and geological reports.
Interested parties are invited to submit their EoI by 17:00 hrs on the 15th of September 2016, by email to this address: [email protected] The MNR shall formally respond to all interested parties via email as and when all EoIs have been reviewed.
