Somaliland- Hargeisaians flock to Erigavo for the Gold rush

(Medeshi)- Many Somalilanders from the western region are currently in Erigavo both for tourism and to have their share of the gold and minerals found in the valleys in Sanaag.


There are also plenty of minerals other than gold that have been found in the region. A friend of mine from Hargeisa sent me dozens of photos of the minerals that are currently trending in Erigavo market.
These photos were sent to me by Abdi Handsup who is currently in Erigavo and hails from Hargeisa.

Digging gold is a laborious work but most of the amateur gold diggers in the region were very much encouraged by the Chinese manufactured gold detectors. These detectors are handheld and cost between $2000 and up. These gold detectors are mainly useful to detect gold found on the surface.
A local company has recently been given the license to search gold in the downside  Guban areas of Gollis Range of Sanaag. The company brought engineers from Eastern Europe and others.
The news of Gold in Sanaag has enhanced the tourism in the region. It has also helped the local business such as hotels and the food sector.
