Muscat: Kunooz Oman Holding, a leading player in mining, quarrying, transportation and construction material sectors, has applied for mining and exploration licences in three locations from the Public Authority for Mining (PAM), said a top-level official of the company.

“We have three specific projects that we are looking at and all are related to the mining sector in different locations in Oman, with the potential of downstream value-added projects,” Dean Cunningham, chief executive officer of Kunooz Oman Holding, told ‘Times of Oman’ in an interview.
