BURKINA FASO

Burkina Faso is geologically rich. There has been substantial interest in mining, particularly gold mining, in Burkina Faso over the last 40 years. The government of Burkina Faso brought a new Mining Act into being in 2003.

Some of the world’s most prolific mines are on greenstone belts. These belts cover about 3 000 000 km2 of West Africa, making the area’s exploration potential substantial. Burkina Faso currently accounts for 21% of West Africa’s greenstone belt exposure.
