Reko diq in Baluchistan

– Khawer Memon

Reko Diq is a small town in Chagai District, Balochistan . World’s largest Gold and Copper reserves are found in Reko Diq.

Tethyan Copper of Australia  has taken the contract to develop this mine. Barrick Gold Corporation of Canada and Antofagasta of Chile have a joint-ownership of the copper-gold deposit at Reko Diq.

The Reko Diq deposit is being explored by Tethyan Copper Company Pty Ltd (75%) and the (BDA) Balochistan Development Authority (25%). Tethyan Copper Company is held jointly (50:50) by Barrick Gold Corporation and Antofagasta Minerals.

Currently the deposit is at scoping / pre feasibility stage.. It is a world class copper / gold porphyry style deposit, typical of the tethyan belt.

It has been sold to the Zionist controlled regimes by the Pakistani Government under the dictator at a price of $21 billion. Rough estimates suggest that the gold and copper at the surface accounts for $65 billion worth of deposits.
Tell me how many of us know about it …remember the total debt on Pakistani Nation is $38b.

  1. Hello Dears
    Reko Diq is world largest Copper and Gold project in Chaghi, where already a Copper and Gold project is situated (Saindak Copper and Gold Project Chaghi).Saindak Project produced 7.746 tones of gold during the last five years – 2004 to 2008 – Pakistan has joined the ranks of gold producing countries. For detail (http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=20095\11\story_11-5-2009_pg7_2)

    But nearest villages of Saindak project have no school, electric city and water supply, even killi Sarwar and killy Amalaf which are in project area but these killies are also facing lack of basic health and education facilities.
    Even Saindak project use 13 kg cyanide/day and pollute environment with cyanide and these cyanides go to tailing pond and contaminate water table. Due to this reason peoples facing health issues but no Pakistani and international environmental organizations taking notices just Pakistan have interest in profit and have no interest in Baloch people’s life.
    The nearest peoples are facing jobless but from Punjab Karachi and Peshawar people are getting key posts in Saindak.
    Same situation is in Reko Diq, where Canadian Mining Company Barrick Gold is working but the policies are against Balochs .Actually on the key posts of Barrick management in Pakistan mostly Punjabies,Indian Muhajir and Peshawari. Project is in control of Military Intelligence (MI) and retired and on service MI Majors and captons are working as a Security Officer in site. Zafar Iqbal Major MI is Nokkundi Office Manager nad Col Sher Khan is corporate manager.Col Sher Khan used loosed words against Baloch Leader killed bu ISI in Turbat and Baloch Employees and also community protest against sherkhan and said to company fire Sher Khan but Barrick Management refused Balochs demand and still Sher ZKhan is working on Corporate level (http://corpwatch.org/article.php?id=15384)
    Balochs are working in project just as a labor and Driver.
    We appeal to all international human rights organizations and also Balochs organization to protest against Barrick Gold Anti Baloch Policies. We appeal to Canadian Baloch human right and Baloch Society of North Amerca to protest against Barrick Gold policies in Canada.

  2. This is cleared that Reko Diq is Baloch National Wealth but unfortunately Balochistan is colony of Amercan nawaz pakistan and Pakistan sold Baloch National Wealth without Baloch permission.This time Project is in controll of MI.A several MI retired and service officers are working in project as a security officer.Balochs are just working as a labour and driver.
    We Baloch are right to say that this project should be stop and only Baloch have right to decide about project.
    A Canadian Mining company Barrick Gold is owner this project but Barrick Gold [policies are anti Blaoch.Company policies are making by FC (frontier crop) Nokkundi.When ever a locl Baloch say something about his right than FC Nokkundi arrast and torture him.
    We appeal to Baloch organization which are working in Canada or America to protest against canadian company and its anti Baloch policies.

    This is a very good news ofcource! But how we are manageing this situation is very bad. It is so sad to know that Allah has blessed Pakistan with such great wealths as most fertile lands, abundent mineral wealth, great people and sea shores and alot of uncountable things. Coutries like japan which have no iron ore are still on of the worlds biggest exporters of cars. We all know that japan is spread on many islands each with many differences. Japan is one of most developed country.
    Now let us look at our selves.
    We have been fooled on many fronts. Even though we all follow one same God, same Book and same Prophet, we can be put into querrals by very tiny and petty things. We are Sunni’s and shia’s and we alway fight or tend to fight each other irrespective of the humanity element. We are also at each others neck when it comes to Pathans and Punjabis, Muhajirs and Pathans, Sindhi’s and Pathans, even with in punjab there is sariakee’s and punjabi’s, and then Potohari and Punjabis. same would be the case with in other provences. The point is all we do is fight among each other. This leaves a vacum for other powers to enter and exploit the situation. Just look at the arabs. Their power is less then Isreals. beacuse the stupid arabs are split into small states and spending their oil wealth on luxuries, but they are just like a weak girl infront of ISreal. If we are united we can be a great power, keep in mind that the average punjabi, sindhi, baloch or pathan is not a racist. he just wants to live a respectable life. BUT there are those who want us to fight each other so they can exploit us.

    remember United we Rise!!! DEVIDED WE FALL!!

  4. I feel so regretful to read so much wrong information from people who just hear these things and post it on blogs. It is never wise to just say things that you have not authenticated.

    There is no “punjabis” selling “Baluch” property to foreigners.
    Reko Diq agreement has been signed by Baluch govt and only they themselves are 25% share holders in the stake. It is like royalty fee. This form of agreement is common all over the world and Iran and other countries falling on Tethyan belt have similar agreements since ages.

    Please do take care of what you say is authentic information and what you know well.
    Thanks!

  5. Reko Diq in Balochistan: US $ 65 Billion natural deposits sold for US $21 Billion

    By Waheed Baloch Dalbandin

    Reko Diq is a small town in Chagai District, Balochistan. World’s largest Gold and Copper reserves are found in Reko Diq.
    Tethyan Copper of Australia has taken the contract to develop this mine. Barrick Gold Corporation of Canada and Antofagasta of Chile have a joint-ownership of the copper-gold deposit at Reko Diq.The Reko Diq deposit is being explored by Tethyan Copper Company Pty Ltd (75%) and the (BDA)Balochistan Development Authority (25%). Tethyan Copper Company is held jointly (50:50) by Barrick Gold Corporation and Antofagasta Minerals.
    Currently the deposit is at scoping / pre feasibility stage. It is a world class copper / gold porphyry style deposit, typical of the Tethyan belt.
    It has been sold to the Zionist controlled regimes by the Pakistani Government under the dictator at a price of $21 billion. Rough estimates suggest that the gold and copper at the surface accounts for $65 billion
    worth of deposits. Tell me how many of us know about it …remember the total debt on Pakistani Nation is $38b.
    Now the question is why Pakistani media and Govt is silent about it? Why it is kept secret from Pakistani Nation?
    Rekodiq is near to Nokkundi Chaghi Balochistan and this is cleared that this Gold deposits are Baloch National Wealth,only Baloch have right to decide about this project but unfortunately punjabi establishment sold this huge Gold deposit without permission of Baloch,as the sold Saindak Gold project.Even Sui gas field is captured by Pakistan Petrolium Limited,Luti,uch and pir koh gas field are captured by OGDCL.
    In reko diq all managements are Indian Muhajir or Punjabies Balochs are labor.The management of Barick Gold and Punjabi/Muhajir labi are making policy against Baloch.
    We appeal to all human right organization to worked against Barick Gold and we also request to All Baloch organization to start a compaign against Barick Gold.
    In this time company is not ready to give job local people.All management belongs from Krachi and last days local people strike for job,Fc arrasted local tribal and political workers.
    So we want ownership nd we dont like Barrick Gold
