Summary

The Central, North and East African regions produce copper, diamonds and phosphate
on a large scale. In 2011, the Central African region accounted for 43% of the global
industrial diamond production, North Africa accounted for 21% of the global phosphate
rock production, and East Africa produced more than 5% of global copper output.
Additionally, deposits of 10 minerals, which primarily include bauxite, coal, gold, iron
ore, uranium and other base metals, are under development in the three regions. This
identified 22 potential mining projects which are expected to start during the period
2012–2020, of which 15 projects are under development while the rest are in the
exploration and advanced exploration stages.

Central Africa is the major investment destination of the three regions, with mining projects
valued over $11 billion. Investments are primarily concentrated in bauxite, diamond, gold,
iron ore and base metal deposits in Cameroon and Democratic Republic of Congo. Central
Africa is expected to be a significant producer of gold in the near future. The region’s gold
production will increase from the current 250-300 thousand ounces to a range of 950-1000
thousand ounces by 2016, primarily due to the start of production from the Kibali gold
project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The North African region is driven by the substantial reserves of phosphate primarily located
in Morocco, which produced around 28 million metric tons (MMt) of phosphate rock in 2011.
Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP), which is the largest producer of phosphate in the
region, plans to invest around $4.2 billion to develop the infrastructure around the mines
and expand the country’s phosphate production to around 55 MMt by 2020. In addition,
Australia-based company Celamin Holdings, with investments of up to $1 billion, is
developing phosphate deposits in Tunisia.

The East African region’s development is focused on the coal, gold, iron ore and uranium
sectors. Coal production from the region was in the range of 400-450 thousand metric tons
in 2011, and is expected to exceed 100 MMt by 2020 due to six coal projects that are
expected to start production in Mozambique during 2013–2015. The value of the projects
focused on developing coal, gold and iron ore deposits in Mozambique is expected to
exceed $7 billion. In addition, Zambia is expected to see investments of up to $2.5 billion
during the period 2012–2015, with copper and cobalt being the key sectors.

Summary

The Central, North and East African regions produce copper, diamonds and phosphate
on a large scale. In 2011, the Central African region accounted for 43% of the global
industrial diamond production, North Africa accounted for 21% of the global phosphate
rock production, and East Africa produced more than 5% of global copper output.
Additionally, deposits of 10 minerals, which primarily include bauxite, coal, gold, iron
ore, uranium and other base metals, are under development in the three regions. This
identified 22 potential mining projects which are expected to start during the period
2012–2020, of which 15 projects are under development while the rest are in the
exploration and advanced exploration stages.

Central Africa is the major investment destination of the three regions, with mining projects
valued over $11 billion. Investments are primarily concentrated in bauxite, diamond, gold,
iron ore and base metal deposits in Cameroon and Democratic Republic of Congo. Central
Africa is expected to be a significant producer of gold in the near future. The region’s gold
production will increase from the current 250-300 thousand ounces to a range of 950-1000
thousand ounces by 2016, primarily due to the start of production from the Kibali gold
project in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The North African region is driven by the substantial reserves of phosphate primarily located
in Morocco, which produced around 28 million metric tons (MMt) of phosphate rock in 2011.
Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP), which is the largest producer of phosphate in the
region, plans to invest around $4.2 billion to develop the infrastructure around the mines
and expand the country’s phosphate production to around 55 MMt by 2020. In addition,
Australia-based company Celamin Holdings, with investments of up to $1 billion, is
developing phosphate deposits in Tunisia.

The East African region’s development is focused on the coal, gold, iron ore and uranium
sectors. Coal production from the region was in the range of 400-450 thousand metric tons
in 2011, and is expected to exceed 100 MMt by 2020 due to six coal projects that are
expected to start production in Mozambique during 2013–2015. The value of the projects
focused on developing coal, gold and iron ore deposits in Mozambique is expected to
exceed $7 billion. In addition, Zambia is expected to see investments of up to $2.5 billion
during the period 2012–2015, with copper and cobalt being the key sectors.
