Iron Ore: Challenges and opportunities in Africa

25 Jun 2013, by Test1 Test1

According to recent estimates by Wood Mackenzie, Africa is fortuitous in having a vast undeveloped iron ore resource. The value has been put at roughly 8.3 billion tonnes of marketable reserves. At the recent Africa Iron Ore conference, industry professionals and key government decision makers came together to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the iron ore sector in the region. We have made some of the conference presentations available for viewing and download

Presentation title: West Africa – Expanding the African Iron Ore Footprint

West Africa is often referred to as an Emerging Iron Ore Province with many projects adding up to constitute a significant portfolio. The question is, will this rapidly changing landscape, which is often dominated by infrastructure constraints, political uncertainty and natural barriers succeed in becoming the next iron ore hotspot? Exxaro’s Mayoko project is an exciting development in the heart of the region which is absolutely attuned to the beating rhythm of African growth.
