Mining in Ghana

Mining in Ghana

Mining in Ghana is an important contributor of gold to the world economy, and is the second largest exporter of the mineral in Africa. Mining in Ghana is also an important source of bauxite, manganese, iron ore, diamonds and oil.

In 2014, gold mining in Ghana yielded 90 tonnes of gold – the 10th largest gold producer in the world – with reserves that are estimated to be more than other key regions such as Peru and Papua New Guinea. To further increase mining in Ghana’s productivity, the country has over the past few years made concerted efforts to become as investor-friendly as possible, introducing new legislation regulating mining support services, minerals and mine licensing, health and safety, etc.
