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.
PREMIMA as usual works with artisanal and small scale miners.
