Minerals are fundamental components for a multitude of products and solutions including batteries, pharmaceuticals, asphalt, construction materials, livestock feed and power generation. The diversification of Nigeria’s economy towards a non-oil export-based economy creates opportunities for mining industry operators as important contributors to manufacturing and the economic development in the country.  The country has over 40 minerals including coal, lead-zinc, tin, gold, limestone, Colombo-tantalite, gemstones and bitumen in over 200 occurrences.
