Our Company History

Dates back to the beginning of the 20th Century


Our company is dedicated to the goal of providing expert mining and export services to global refineries. It all started back in the early 1900’s when Jack Holdsworth’s (CEO) Great-Grandfather, (also Mr Jack Holdsworth) was a mining man. He would work exclusively in Western Africa panning for metals by hand with his small crew of friends and business partners. He owned and operated what was then a relatively large mining camp at a place called Ranga. Between the years 1918 – 1922 he produced nearly 14 tons of tin concentrates during the rainy seasons as the Ranga spruit was fed with water from the surrounding foot hills. In December 1922 he lost his 4 blocks of ground to Stewart Smith.

Upon losing his ground, Old Mr Holdsworth had decided to take the £2,700.00 he had saved from his en devours and head over to Australia and team up with mining professionals from across the country.

From this history, The Silverhorn Mining Company was born. His Great-Grandson and now CEO Mr Jack Holdsworth is determined to work towards keeping the dream of his family alive.

These family traditions are the underlying foundations for The Silverhorn Mining Company.
