There are numerous multinational mining companies in Africa, with roots on the continent and abroad. The largest mining companies in Africa include BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Anglo American, Xstrata and Barrick, respectively. These mining companies, worth an estimated total of US$335 billion, are currently mining vastly untapped mineral resources throughout mainland Africa.
Some of these massive mining projects include the BHP Billiton Xstrata joint venture, the Douglas-Middelburg Optimisation Coal Project in South Africa, worth ZAR 9.3 billion (see mining companies in South Africa and mining companies in Johannesburg). This coal mining project is set to continue producing profits for active mining companies in Africa until 2034. Africa Mining IQ presents data on this project dating back to 2006, with each development noted.
Mining companies in Africa are also well-established in Angola (see mining companies in Angola), where the African conglomerate Group 5 and Senet are constructing a ZAR200 million cement project. Africa Mining IQ lists a range of details regarding such mining companies in Africa, with reference to each step involved with establishing the project.
Mining companies in Africa aren’t necessarily privately owned. The Government of the Democratic of Congo owns 17% of the Tenke Fungurume Copper Mine in central DRC (see mining companies in the DRC) along with Freeport-McMoran Copper & Gold, owning 58%.
The key to running successful mining companies in Africa is keeping up to date with the latest developments on the continent. Africa Mining IQ keeps detailed records of all mining ventures, from grassroots, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, to bankable, active and operational stages. Mining companies in Africa even have access to mining operations’ histories, with dormant projects detailed in full.
