Mining Opportunities in Africa

Mining Opportunities in Africa

Rich in mining opportunities, Africa continues to grow its importance as a leading investment frontier for international mining firms. With massive mineral reserves – that equate to about 30% of the world’s total mineral wealth – the continent offers unmatched mining opportunities across a wide range of metals and minerals.

Despite these riches, Africa represents only around 8% of the world’s total mineral production. This points a mining industry that is yet to develop to its true potential.

Long plagued by strife and instability, African countries are now working hard to remove the impediments that have traditionally discouraged investors, creating economic and legal frameworks that comprise a more attractive environment to exploit Africa's mining opportunities.

Africa holds:

  •   46% of the world’s diamonds
  •   21% of the world’s gold
  •   16% of the world’s uranium

Many of the world’s biggest mining companies, such as BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Anglo American and Glencore, already have an established presence here, and, with the rise of Chinese and Indian investors continuing to rise significantly, Africa's mining industry and infrastructure may look very different in 10 years’ time.

If you are looking to further your business in Africa's mining opportunities, there is no better time than now!
