Mining Cadastral Office trains staff on electronic system


Abuja – The Nigerian Mining Cadastral Office (NMCO) says it has begun the final phase of training of its staff on Electronic Mining Cadastre (eMC+) system.

In a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja, Mrs Folasade Fatoke, the NMCO Head of Press Unit, said that the two-week training would be handled by a German consultant at the Digital Bridge Institute, Utako.

Fatoke stated that the training was to prepare the staff on the proposed migration to online system with the installation of the eMC+ system software.

According to the statement, the system is the latest in the administration and management of mineral title for prompt, efficient and transparent management.

“The training is one of the components of the MCO upgrade contract.

“It is for the migration of MCO operations to an online-based Mineral Title Administration system,’’ the statement read.

The system encompasses the digitalisation, automation, recording and archiving process as well as the establishment of six zonal offices across the country.

The eMC+ has been successfully implemented in some other countries.

Fatoke stated that the last phase of the training was critical for the final migration, which was expected to be launched by the end of March 2020.

She said that the process, which was in line with the federal government’s reform in the mining sector, was expected to increase investors’ confidence.

According to her, it will also attract foreign direct investment (FDI) into the country, increase revenue generation and create wealth and employment for the youth.
