Our company is registered in 2009, as Scottish Limited Partnership, and today the main business activity is investment into production and trade of gold and diamonds.
Our current prime activity is investment into Tanzanian and Ugandan gold mining business that are to bring gold and profits to our company.
We are the creator and first beneficiary of the program Start Your Own Gold Mine.
The manager started back doing gold related businesses back in 2002, when gold was purchased and sold on the world markets, with the vault and storage in London, UK and Zurich, Switzerland.
From there on, and the experience in gold business, we have engaged to trade in Europe and in Africa.
Our company GOLDIVANTI LP was founded as separate business in 2009, and we moved quickly through the year 2010 by establishing network of suppliers and clients who were either selling us gold or other precious metals. Our business was paying profits to our partners in 2010 and 2011, and one part in 2012.
In 2012, and 2013, we have started developing mining sites in a small scale mining sector. Manager Mr. Jean Louis, together with partners, associates and local staff members in Tanzania, have inspected multiple mining sites, and determined that business is to be done there in Tanzania.
And that is what we are doing today, developing the mining site locations, engaging as integrator, as prospecting and small scale mining company into relations with local miners and license holders, so that our investments of past may bring profits in future.

This is the engine of the dredge boat and it is in good condition.
- Dredge boat and Stipe showing us the engine and pump
This is Stipe, he is showing us the engine and the pump on his dredge boat.
- Winch on the dredge boat
This is winch on the dredge boat.
- Dredging boat
This boat is a dredge for gravel and sand that is dug out of the river in Croatia. It could be well used for digging and excavation of gold bearing sand and gravel in other countries.
- Crane shovel
This is shovel that is used with the crane and that one is throwing in a swinging motion to fetch the sand, gravel or soil.
- Jean Louis in front of the crane
This is me in front of the crane. This crane is being sold for about 20,000 euro, and decision is not easy as transport and import of the crane may considerably raise the full price of the purchase.
- Crane for digging and excavation
This is universal crane that may be used for digging and excavation of soil, sand and gravel. It may replace excavator in various situations. We are visiting and considering how to obtain new equipment. Decisions on purchase of equipment from Europe with transportation to Tanzania or Uganda are difficult. Sometimes expenses of transport and import may be larger than the equipment price itself.
- Mr. Okedi collecting concentrates from looped carpets
Looped carpets or miners' moss or 3M Nomad type of a carpets are used to efficiently recover gold larger than 50 mesh, gold nuggets, flakes and larger gold. On the end of the day and multiple times of day, concentrates are collected from such carpets.
- Mr. Louis doing practical field assay of gold
Mr. Louis is doing here practical field assay of gold content in some soil. Similar method may be used to concentrate gold from the operation and to determine how much was recovered.
- Magnified flat gold nugget in the gold pan
This is magnified and flat gold nugget in the pan. It is probably flat due to the previous ball mill processing, it was smashed and became flat.
- Small nuggets recovered
Small flat nuggets are also found in concentrates and recovered by using super-concentration and simple gold panning methods.
- Mercury gold and mercury ball in the gold pan
This is how it looks like when many gold particles are connected or amalgamated together with mercury. Miners used mercury in recovery of gold, and lost it in heaps of tailings. We are recovering both the mercury and the gold from such tailings, without using new mercury or introducing new mercury in the process.
- The mercury gold once again
This is mercury gold once again shown in the gold pan after fine gold concentration process. We do not use mercury, we recover it as side effect.
- Mercury recovered from concentrates
Instead of nice yellow gold, our gold looks as silver like, as it is mixed with mercury. Heaps of tailings are polluted with mercury and our recovery is such that we cannot see it yellow any more unless it is either microscopic, as such could not be connected to mercury or too large as nugget, as such also did not connect to mercury.
- The fine gold recovery system
This is fine gold recovery system that helps us concentrate all the gold smaller than 50 mesh.
- Gold is recovered in form of mercury
Heaps of tailings are polluted by mercury from previous mining operation. We are recovering mercury as well with the gold, and later dispose safely with the pollutant. Mercury is not used in our operation. We recover mercury from nature.
- Fine gold recovery system
This is fine gold recovery systems, we are using the genious methods invented by smart microscopist from Oregon for purposes of mercury free gold recovery.
- Concentrate is being processed
Mr. Louis is processing the remaining concentrates and process is fast. It is possible to process multiple buckets of concentrates after work, and to get to the fine gold within 15 minutes.
- The gold recovery system
This is view from my working place on the gold recovery system for all gold smaller than 50 mesh, down to 5 microns. This fine gold can be recovered, totally without using mercury and by using simplest set theory in mathematics applied practically. Many people make a question how a set theory may be applied practically, and that is exactly how our gold recovery system works, by using the set theory and by removing those parts of material not containing or containing gold.
- Buckets of concentrate are today processed for gold
The buckets of concentrate are today processed for gold. In general, our bulk of concentrate is not large. These many buckets contain various particle sizes and types of gold, and help in sorting out what we were doing. We can then determine which heap of tailing was better productive.
- Children panning for gold on mining site
These children are panning for gold on mining site in a dangerous and polluted environment. Each heap of tailings is polluted with mercury. Children are in constant contact with mercury while playing and working on the mining site. We do not endorse such activities. This is report from neighboring sites where we do not have control.
- Heaps of tailings being milled again and processed
These heaps of tailings are being milled again with the rudimentary locally made hammer crusher that runs in wet mode. The material is then processed on small looped carpet sluices. The hammer crusher is spending about 25,000 Ugs. per day on hammers alone, which is about US $6.95.
- Concentrate collection
On the end of the day, concentrate is collected and retained for further concentration and final gold recovery.
- Miners working on the sluice
Miners are handling the first tailings heaps on this mining site.
- Women and people panning for gold nearby our tailings heaps
These women and men are panning for gold just nearby our tailings heaps. They may obtain per day of panning from 0.1 to 0.3 grams of gold, or sometimes more. It helps them live the life.
- Mining and mineral processing site
This is our mining and mineral processing site where we have agreement to process all the tailings heaps.
- Miners feeding the sluice
Sluice is fed by miners by the rate of 132 shovels per hour where average shovel is about 8 kilograms, amounting to little bit more than one tonne per hour. In the first stage, slow water pressure and low slope is applied to review how much of gold is retained and what gold is eventually being lost. Once capability have been attained, the slope is increasing up to the tolerated degree, and water pressure is increased. Up to 6-8 tonnes per hour may then be handled in the second stage.
- Concentrate on the vortex matting
This is vortex matting, enlarged. Concentrate is under the surface of these particles, including several small gold nuggets.
- Mr. Louis by the sluice
This is Mr. Louis, preparing small details for the fine gold recovery sluice. Gold particles are so small that cannot be seen by naked eyes.
- Water pump is debugged
The water pump could not pull the water on 2-3 meters. We found out that pressure was disturbed too weak connection of the suction hose. Within few minutes it was repaired and water pump engaged.
- Our purchasing manager on the site
This is our purchasing manager in Uganda, she handles a lot of accounting, facilitates with suppliers, makes sure that things are running smoothly.
- Quick and improvized sluice ready for work
This is quick and improvized sluice ready for work and handling of the tailings heaps.
- Preparing the elevation for sluices
Mr. Okedi is preparing the elevation for the sluice hopper.
- Old welding clamps used for carpentry
This type of welding clamps may be used for carpentry and are generally useful to clamp the prospecting equipment, such as sluices together.
- Using welding clamps for carpentry
These welding clamps may be used for simple carpentry as one can see it.
- Preparation of the HDPE pipes
The HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) pipe is prepared on the mining site for the sluice run.
- Gold particles on the rock
This magnification of 10x shows gold particles of 3-4 millimeter on the rock that also contains some iron or black sand.
- Repairing the wooden goat
Those wooden goats were made of low quality timber. Not made to last, but to be light and to endure the improvization stage. We had to repair this one.
- The old abandoned rudimentary ball mill drum
This is old and abandoned rudimentary ball mill drum on the mining site. One may see how it was repaired multiple times. We suspect gold inside, left for those who know where to search for it.
- Mineral sample on the mining site
This is gold bearing rock that is crushed, milled and processed on this mining site.
- Mr. Louis nearby the tailings heap
This is the tailings heap in background, and Mr. Louis is watching what? Birds? We don't know.
- The mercury coated or amalgamated gold in the gold pan
This is the enlargement of the mercury coated or amalgamated gold in the gold pan.
- Mercury gold and small gold particles recovered
Mercury gold is seen in the gold pan and represents the result from one portion of the concentrates that were collected on the sluice. Mercury collects small particles of gold together, and we recovery mercury and dispose of it. We do not use mercury in recovery of the gold. We recover both gold and mercury accidentally due to previous mercury pollution.
- Sluice handling
People are handling the sluice for fine gold recovery. We are using 4 important pieces of technology necessary to capture small gold. The test stage allows a lot of mistakes to happen, so that next sluice may be built with all the small improvements necessary for better gold recovery.
- Feeding the sluice
The sluice is fed during the first half an hour of testing. Clay material was much harder to handle, while all the sand was handled pretty well, mercury and gold particles could be recovered, together with the oxide coated gold particles.
- Laminar water flow
Laminar water flow on the sluice is important factor in gold recovery. Turbulences and bubbles or air spaces under the water flow shall by all means be avoided.
- Gold particles are separated on the sluice
Sluice and the slick plates on the first part of the sluice are being separated from each other and gold particles are running to be captured. Water flow is carefully observed, the level of the sluice, bubbles and turbulences.
- So many hoses, pipe, which one is ours?
There are so many hoses and pipes on the ground, many of them are neglected. Miners do their best. Due to expenses, light blue hoses are used to bring water. But they are also breaking all the time and are more liability than an asset. We are using the HDPE pipe of two inch as it is durable and gives least resistant to water in comparison to those other soft hoses.
- The HDPE pipe is being moved for easier water supply
The HDPE pipe is moved by our people for easier water supply. That way we did not need to cut the expensive suction hose which we use to bring water from the HDPE pipe. HDPE means high density polyethylene. Polyethylene is a lightweight thermoplastic used in insulation, plumbing and similar applications.
- The sluice ready for the tailings heap test
The sluice is setup on the mining site on 1st January 2018 and is ready for the tailings test. Larger gold particles were found and much of the smaller particles of black, brown and dark red gold. Maybe you wonder what is black, brown and dark red gold? Those gold particles are coated with other minerals and do not appear as yellow and shiny as larger gold particles.
- Laurence at Upendo orphanage, delivery of clothes and shoes
Our executive associate Laurence is delivering clothes and shoes to Upendo orphanage. We could not find all the children that were there present back in 2016. So we are still to understand what happened to them. One part of clothes and shoes was delivered to children in need. Those were sent by Erwin, our partner from Germany.

- Purger waits for the burger
This is Mr. Robert Stažnik, our Executive Associate in 2012. for business development in Tanzania. Purger means "Burger", it is German word for citizen, and he is purger of Zagreb, Croatia, of the inner town of Zagreb, the old part. It also means he is of exceptional character, trustful, loyal, honest, and ethical. I have not met a better man. He has handled all the tasks he had in Tanzania back in 2012, and we just hope to get him back into the business. Eat that Hamburger, purger!…
- The red face of Purger of Zagreb, Croatia, Mr. Robert Stažnik
That is what happenes when purger from Zagreb comes to Tanzania. Red face. Purger means "Burger" in German language or "citizen", which has the meaning of a citizen of Zagreb, especially those citizens of the old town of Zagreb or near to the old town. Robert is exceptional, loyal, trustful and have helped us a lot. We reserve the right to mock him on these pages.

- The tailing heaps in September 2012
These tailing heaps were producing 200-300 grams back in 2012. They could be purchased for affordable price and processed quickly for money.
- The "Aha" moment or Eureka moment in Tanzania, September 14th 2012
This was the major Eureka moment or Aha! Moment for me in Tanzania, back on September 14th 2012. I could realize that each of the bags carried on the bicycles as seen on pictures contains one gram of gold which summarizes up to 20 grams of gold per tonne. The material was soft soil, that is easy to excavate with shovels or even hands. Many people, including women, grandfathers and grandmothers, and children were filling their rice bags with soil, and bringing them to the mineral processing place.
- The gold cyanidation plant in Tanzania
This is the gold cyanidation plant in Tanzania. About 5 kilograms of gold have been produced here every month. The plant had 4 partners. Just about 30 days thereafter, we were informed that only 3 partners left due to the fatal car accident.
- Mineral processing plant in Tanzania on 14th September 2012
This view is one of the "Aha" moments that happened in my life. That is where we realized how gold may be mined, obtained, processed, recovered for profits. Even though we already had some of contracts for mining ventures in sight, this was the first practical cognition. I have realized that people are leaching gold with cyanide, and purchasing heaps of gold bearing tailings. At that time I was myself in conflict with the chemicals, such as mercury or cyanide. After long research I have decided to…

- Poor conditions of Upendo Orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania, back in 2012
The conditions and environment for these children is not as good, that we tried to remedy since 2012. The orphanage is not registered and the only caretaker is Mama Vedastina Manyasi which need our support since then.
- The poor house of the orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania
The house is poor, and dirty. About 12 children with the caretaker Vedastina, sleep all together there. First they were not using any mattresses, until we brought it to them. Then some of mattresses were sold in the meantime. Things happen.
- The Upendo Orphanage in Mwanza, Tanzania on 11th September 2012
This is the Upendo Orphange in Mwanza, Tanzania, back in September 2012. The orphanage is not registered, and held by Mama Vedastina Manyasi, which we support from the first day we know them. They had at the time about 12 children, and even today, there is about 10 children in the orphanage. Some of them grow, some of them still stay with the caretaker.
- Goldivanti LP purchasing manager in Uganda in front of the storage room

- One part of our equipment in the storage room
This is one part of our equipment in the storage room. Few suction hoses, a water pump, basins, gold pans, vortex matting and the miners' moss, fine gold sluices, buckets for concentrates and various basic tools.
- Mr. Louis resting after gold recovery
The gold recovery method took several minutes to complete and to run the concentrates to recover some fine gold particles. Mr. Louis is resting in standing position, after longer sitting session.
- The fine gold recovery system as conducted by Mr. Louis
The fine gold system is conducted by Mr. Louis in the shade of the storage and accommodation building. Few buckets, gold pans, classifiers, and super-concentration helps in recovery of the finest gold particles. Both the beach sand and tailing heaps have been proven to contain fine gold and that is the target of the operation on this mining site. The recovery of fine gold in multiple tailing heaps.
- Fine gold recovered after test of the tailing
The fine gold have been recovered after the test of the tailing heaps and beach sand. The beach sand is containing fine gold and mercury together from previous mining operations. People are bringing sand and soil all the time to wash it on the river. Beach contains a lot of fine gold and few nuggets. The tailing heaps contain fine gold and small nuggets as well. This fine gold as shown on the picture have been recovered without any mercury, by using simplest tools for gold prospecting.
- Drink mercury, drink
Not that I wanted this. But it is how it is. Chicken and goats are continously on the mining site and drinking whatever water they find around. This gold pan had black sand particles with gold and mercury smaller than 200 mesh. It was sieves with the 200 mesh sieve. Such fine gold smaller than 200 mesh, including even smaller mercury particles are floating in the water. These chicks are drinking both the fine gold particles floating in the water and mercury particles as well. Mercury is a pollutant…
- The fine gold recovery system
This is our fine gold recovery system. A set of buckets and basins, classifiers, sluices, gold pans. Very simple. We can recover finest gold particles without using mercury. Process is fast and simple and we use the principle and the rule that key to recovery of gold is concentration. So we do that. We concentrate it. First we are concentrating the gold on the fine gold sluice. Then we obtain the concentrates we concentrate the concentrates on a smaller sluice and get very much of the gold in very…
- The tailing heap
This is the tailing heap being processed by the fellow miner on the location. The expected outcome is about 50 grams, up to 100 grams, with the initial expense of just 10 grams and later running expenses.
- The raised operation on the heap
The operation of tailing processing is raised so that hammer crusher is placed on the top of the heap and sluices down. The second sluice have too much of the slope and also very turbulent water flow that simply looses a lot of gold. 1-2 grams of gold lost per day makes a lot of money on the end of the month.
- Find out where is the assaying sluice...
On this picture one may observe the flow of the processed tailing, and there is one small assaying sluice capturing the fine gold particles. Try to find out where it is. Do you see it?…
- The tailing heap after re-processing
These tailing heaps are ending on the location just nearby the river thus polluting the area with the mercury particles. River is fully polluted, cows are drinking the same water and mercury is slowly transported to human bodies.
- Miners' moss and the turbulent water flow
Miners are using this type of a setup with two sluices after the hammer crusher. That is for the reason that the crusher cannot easily be stopped and started again, so they close one of the outputs to clean the carpet on one side while the other one is still running. Miners' moss is incorrectly set, the water flow is turbulent, and expanded metal is missing to push the gold particles quickly down into the carpets. A simple test have revealed that a lot of gold is being lost, just as much as one would…
- The "Wett Mill" or locally made hammer crusher and processing of tailing
This is "wet mill" or locally made hammer crusher that breaks each in a while. The maintenance expenses may be alone 3,500,000 Ugs. (Ugandan shillings) per month. The hammers are constantly replaced and the machine once running cannot be easily turned off. It mills rocks just for a certain percentage, large amount of pebbles and rocks come out as not well done.

The worker is trying to scoop material from ground that was discharged from a rock crusher. Gold is lost in the process and his method of scooping is not efficient.
- Mining site and mineral processing place ID: 281
This is mineral processing place in Uganda where we started with research and production in 2017.
- Too steep slopes of the open pit
They are excavating open pit where it is believed there is gold. The excavator is making too steep slopes in my opinion and is not moving material correctly away from an open pit. It will tend to fall down.
