Extractive Industries

Mali’s mining sector continues to flourish. It seems that the political crisis has not deterred investors. Mali’s mineral sector is dominated by gold mining, the country being the third largest gold producer in Africa. In 2009, gold exports accounted for more than 80% of export earnings and roughly 8% of GDP. Other mineral resources included bauxite, iron ore, diamond, limestone, manganese, nickel, petroleum, phosphates, tin and uranium. Mali’s petroleum potential is promising and research and exploration are stepping up. Mali could also provide a strategic transport route for oil and gas exports and 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.
The reconcilation report covering data from 2010 was received by the EITI International Secretariat on 28 December 2012.

EITI Implementation

EITI Mali published its 2010 report amongst further episodes in the ongoing political crisis. The difficulties in outreach experienced thus far will undoubtedly continue.
