BSGR to Skip Hearing as Guinea Weighs Seizing Asset By Jesse Riseborough & Andy Hoffman - Dec 8, 2013 3:45 PM GMT (Corrects to remove comments from consultant in paragraphs seven and 19 of the previous version of this story.) Relations between Israel’s wealthiest person Beny Steinmetz and the mineral-rich African nation of Guinea have deteriorated to such an extent that neither the billionaire nor any of his representatives plan to attend a final hearing into the ownership of a prized iron-ore asset. While Steinmetz was once close enough to a former leader of the country to invite him to his daughter’s 2009 wedding, his BSG Resources Ltd. has more recently been fighting for the release of two executives from a prison in the capital Conakry. The company has said it’s the victim of a smear campaign that has culminated in a 14-month government review into how BSGR won rights to one of the world’s largest untapped iron-ore deposits. That review is set to conclude at a hearing this month that has the power to strip BSGR of the asset. Steinmetz’s plans to spend $10 billion building an iron-ore rail, port and mine complex have been halted after what started as a Guinean review into how his company gained the rights in 2008 widened to at least four other nations.

BSGR, which missed a Dec. 2 deadline to answer questions from the government, denies wrongdoing. “We have a deadline, and if they give us a deadline we don’t care about what they say,” Steinmetz’s Geneva-based lawyer Marc Bonnant said by phone on Dec. 3. “But we are going to definitely give answers. Nobody is going to Guinea, of course.” A spokesman for BSGR declined to comment. Gifts, Payments The government last month asked BSGR and partner Vale SA of Brazil to provide details of gifts and payments allegedly passed to Guinean officials to help their venture win access to the ground in 2008, according to a letter sent to BSGR’s operation in the country and seen by Bloomberg News. Written evidence was required to be submitted to the review committee eight days before the planned Dec. 10 hearing, the letter showed. That hearing has been delayed to Dec. 16 to allow the BSGR-Vale partnership to study evidence that the government will present at the hearing, a person with knowledge of the process said, asking not to be identified because the information isn’t public. Ibrahima Sory Toure, vice president of BSGR and director of public relations, and Issaga Bangoura, a security official of the company, were released on Nov. 29 after being arrested in April as part of a Guinean investigation. VBG Venture “They are not in prison any more, but the investigations pursue their normal course,” said Sorry Cisse, public prosecutor for the Court of Kalo
