MINING & QUARRYING
Several African countries have vast deposits of mineral resources that have been left largely unexploited because of a lack of technical know-how, as well as the financial incapacity to embark on capital-intensive mining projects. A case study is Nigeria’s hugely underdeveloped mining industry. The country also has a wide array of mineral resources which include iron ore, coal, bauxite, gold, tin, lead and zinc which have been neglected because of the country’s preoccupation with its massive oil deposits.
The Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Namibia, and Zambia are other examples of African countries that also have unexploited high-value reserves of diamond, cobalt, gold, copper and other resources. This could be a good opportunity for experienced mining and quarrying entrepreneurs, to tap into this unexplored area. For organisations wishing to penetrate into this sector, Oakmark can help to facilitate your entry.
