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


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.


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

In 2012 Cape Lambert Resources decided to sell the mine. In 2013 Cape Lambert requested a mining license for the mine. At the moment (August 2014) the mine is still available for sale.
