4.6 billion yuan "Golden Mountain" waiting
liuxuewei, the boss of Ritter company, accidentally found a 4.6 billion yuan "Golden Mountain" and came into the sight of the world bank. Now, he is looking forward to the world bank to help him continue his "billionaire dream"
in September 1999, Baoxing County, Ya'an, Sichuan Province, was known as the hometown of Chinese stone materials at home and abroad. Liu Xuewei, chairman and general manager of Sichuan Baoxing Ruite Stone Co., Ltd., encountered the most surprising thing in his life: he and the relevant experts he invited here found a Shanshui white ore base with mineral reserves of more than 3 million cubic meters and a value of 4.6 billion yuan, which is unique in the world. Immediately, Liu Xuewei, who was good at grasping business opportunities, successfully obtained the mining license and obtained the mining right for 10 years
since October 1999, he has built roads, laid electric wires, and prepared to build construction sites... By May 2001, Liu Xuewei had invested more than 4 million yuan in all his assets to develop this golden mountain, but it was still far from turning the mine into money, and the mining plan had to be completely stopped. In the next three months, Liu Xuewei issued a call for "capital" through various exhibitions, China Stone Industry Association and networks. Although Shanghai Yafan stone company, Shanxi Huada Company and others came to negotiate with Ruite stone company, they failed because their capital strength was too different from the requirements of mining
"last October, boss Liu took the initiative to find the World Bank China small and medium enterprise project development center (CPDF)". On the 17th, Li Yang, manager of CPDF investment department, told that boss Liu's Shanshui white ore base had also attracted the attention of the world bank. In November, the investment officials of CPDF successively inspected the stone project according to the operation procedures of the world bank for project development, formed a project plan and submitted it to the world bank for evaluation and decision
it is reported that boss Liu hopes that according to the mining right evaluation, the world bank can invest about 100million yuan to control the world's largest "Shanshui white" stone base. According to Li Yang, at present, the two sides have not reached practical cooperation. "However, the possibility of cooperation between the two sides is very high. Next, CPDF's investment officials will conduct an in-depth investigation of the project."
