THE OFFICIAL MINING IN AFRICA COUNTRY INVESTMENT GUIDE (MACIG) 2016

February 05, 2016

Despite all the global headwinds and local challenges, some African mining jurisdictions are growing and are creating more opportunities in which to attract investment. Companies are generally retrenching, but are taking cost-saving steps and implementing greater efficiency in the process. The power sector has long been a hurdle for mining on the continent, but there are potentially some encouraging initiatives underway, and the discovering of new oil and natural gas fields bring greater optimism about the continent’s ability to address these issues. Finally, an upswing in global commodity prices could well occur in the second half of 2016, and Africa’s mining industries will be well positioned to grow in such a case.
