Guinea said it will examine Sable Mining Ltd.’s activities in the West African nation as President Alpha Conde denied allegations by advocacy group Global Witness that the London-based company supported his presidential election campaign in 2010.

Mines Minister Abdoulaye Magassouba and Minister of Justice Cheick Sacko said in separate e-mailed statements that they will probe Sable’s licenses in Guinea.
