Mining in West Africa

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 516 mining projects in this mineral-wealthy region.

In indexing over 2 000 African mining projects on its database, Africa Mining IQ is used by over 170 businesses to enhance their project intelligence.
