Africa - PowerMining Projects Database (2014)

"The Africa Power–Mining Database 2014 shows ongoing and forthcoming mining projects in Africa categorized by the type of mineral, ore grade, size of the project. The database draws on basic mining data from Infomine surveys, the United States Geological Survey, annual reports, technical reports, feasibility studies, investor presentations, sustainability reports on property-owner websites or filed in public domains, and mining websites (Mining Weekly, Mining Journal, Mbendi, Mining-technology, and Miningmx). Comprising 455 projects in 28 SSA countries with each project’s ore reserve value assessed at more than $250 million, the database collates publicly available and proprietary information.

It also provides a panoramic view of projects operating in 2000–12 and anticipated demand in 2020. The analysis is presented over three timeframes: pre-2000, 2001–12, and 2020 (each containing the projects from the previous period except for those closing during that previous period)."
