FREE TRAINING ON GEMSTONE TRADE & MINING: Introduction The Gemstone and Semi-precious stone sub-sector of the solid mineral sector are often neglected, yet the most lucrative in the solid mineral industry. With the right information, you can easily tap into the multi-billion dollar international gems and crystal trade. This free training is to contribute my own quota to Nigerian development. Gemstone trade or mining is a business anyone can venture into. Exporters, entrepreneurs, geologists, businessmen/ women, public servants, students, etc. It is a sector that can provide employment for our youths and create wealth for the Country. Government should discard the unproductive policy of poverty reduction, and instead adopt the productive policy of wealth creation in its economic development plans. The Gemstone sector is a good area to start for wealth generation and employment creation. Good-spirited individuals & philanthropists like the Cubanas of this World should look into this sector when empowering the youths next time. I will post one free lesson on this platform each day for the next few weeks. The training is structured into two parts. Part one is How to Start Gemstone Mining in Nigeria, while part two is How to Start Gemstone Business. The lesson topics cover all the different aspects of the gemstone industry, including licenses & permits, site acquisition, locations of gemstone deposits in Nigeria, hiring of miners, international Gemstone Trade centers, important Gemstone websites, international Gemstone laboratories, international Gemstone Trade fairs, marketing strategies & platforms, grading & pricing, and much much more. The first lesson will be posted on this platform tomorrow morning. After the training, you will be allowed to ask questions.
