Extractive Industries

Mali’s mining sector continues to flourish. It appears that the political crisis has not deterred investors.

Mali’s mining sector is dominated by gold production, the country is Africa’s third largest producer of gold. From  2009 to 2011 gold exports accounted for about 75% of export earnings and approximately 7% of GDP.

Other minerals produced include bauxite, iron ore, diamond, limestone, manganese, nickel, petroleum, phosphates, tin and uranium.

Mali’s petroleum potential is promising. Research and exploration operations have intensified.

Mali could also provide a strategic transport route for oil and gas exports. There is the possibility of connecting the Taoudeni basin to the European market through Algeria.

EITI Reporting

The country produces EITI Reports that disclose revenues from the extraction of its natural resources. Companies disclose what they have paid in taxes and other payments and the government discloses what it has received. These two sets of figures are compared and reconciled.
Preparatory work aimed at the publication of a 2012 report that conforms to the requirements of the new Standard is on-going.
