  • Inside Story - Nigeria's illegal miners

    Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe At least 160 people have died in Northern Nigeria, and this number is likely to increase as villagers continue to expose themselves to lead poisoning from illegal gold mining. The discovery of a gold deposit triggered a "gold rush" among impoverished farmers who dug up rocks by hand, unaware that the ore contained dangerously high concentrations of lead. Nigerian authorities have asked for assistance from various international agencies, including the World Health Organisation, to help contain the outbreak. But the Nigerian government has not stepped in to curb the illegal mining. It is reported that at least 111 of those killed were children, many of them under the age of five. Inside Story asks: Just why do these people run this risk? Ho...

  • Mining industry of Nigeria

    The mining of minerals in Nigeria accounts for only 0.3% of its GDP, due to the influence of its vast oil resources. The domestic mining industry is underdeveloped, leading to Nigeria having to import minerals that it could produce domestically, such as salt or iron ore. Rights to ownership of mineral resources is held by the Nigerian government, which grants titles to organizations to explore, mine, and sell mineral resources. Organized mining began in 1903 when the Mineral Survey of the Northern Protectorates was created by the British colonial government. A year later, the Mineral Survey of the Southern Protectorates was founded. By the 1940s, Nigeria was a major producer of tin, columbite, and coal. The discovery of oil in 1956 hurt the mineral extraction industries, as government and ...

Professor Osinbajo explained that the move was part of measures by the government to help provide cheap loans and grants to industry participants as well as for directly investing in foundational infrastructure. He said the Presidency would work closely with the Nigerian Stock Exchange to create new funding arrangements and incentives for investors willing to invest in the sector. “We are currently working with the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority, the Nigerian Stock Exchange, and others to assemble a $600m investment fund for the sector.Internationally we have secured $150m in funding from the World Bank for the Mineral Sector Support for Economic Diversification ( “Internationally we have secured $150m [in funding] from the World Bank for the Mineral Sector Support for Economic Diversification (MSSED),” the Acting President added. Apart from financial investments, he said government was also addressing the challenge of the lack of geological data. “The Nigerian geological and survey agency is undertaking the additional ground investigation nationwide to upgrade our national minerals’ database so that we can more easily attract financial investment, as well as assure operators of the scope of operations required for further exploration and mining. “We’ve also signed memoranda of understanding and technical cooperation agreements with the China Geological service, Shandong Mineral Exploitation Agency; and the National Office of Hydrocarbons and Mines of Morocco,” he said.
