Mining in West Africa

Mining in West Africa is an important source of gold, iron ore, uranium and diamonds. The region is also rich in aluminium, nickel, phosphate, manganese and zinc.

Most of the mineral wealth in this region remains undeveloped, meaning West Africa’s importance in the global mineral economy will increase in the future.

Africa Mining IQ is Africa’s largest mining intelligence database, and provides detailed, actionable mining intelligence for over 550 mining projects in this mineral-wealthy region.

In indexing over 1 800 African mining projects on its database, Africa Mining IQ is used by over 170 businesses to enhance their project intelligence.

Africa Mining IQ’s listings for West Africa include the following projects:

  • 153 projects in Burkina Faso
  • 93 projects in Ghana
  • 92 projects in Mali
  • 43 projects in Senegal
  • 37 projects in Guinea
  • 36 projects in Cot d’Ivoire
  • 27 projects in Sierra Leone
  • 25 projects in Liberia
  • 20 projects in Niger
  • 13 projects in Mauritania
  • 5 projects in Nigeria
  • 4 projects in Togo

Many of these projects are in the feasibility (56 projects) or bankable (7 projects) stages and are currently contracting equipment and solutions providers as they gear up towards production.

Some of the most recently-updated projects on the Africa Mining IQ database include:

The Nampala Gold Project, Mali
The Nampala Gold Project is the most advanced of all the 9 permits of the Mininko Permit, near Bougouni, in Mali. Two extra cyanide treatment tanks are planned, which will be executed in 3 phases. The project value stands at R374 453 000.

The Balatindi Project, Guinea
The Balatandi Project is a newly added project in East Guinea. It lies within a broad tectono-magnetic belt that lies south of the Siguiri Basin, with high potential for gold, uranium and cooper mineralisation.

The Gueguere Project, Burkina Faso
This project is located in southwest Burkina Faso within the Boromo Birimian Greenstone Belt, where gold geochemical anomalies have been identified. Potential for gold mineralisation exists in both constituent licenses.
