Marampa Mines is the site of an iron ore mine based in the town of Lunsar, Port Loko District, Sierra Leone[1].

Railway[edit]

The mine is connected to the port at Port Pepel by an 84 km long 1,067 mm (3 ft 6 in) gauge railway. This railway is experiencing problems with the theft of its track, and other obstructions.

Mine[edit]

In September 2008, the mine at Marampa was sold to Cape Lambert Iron Ore.[1][2]
