West Africa — an emerging gold exploration investment hotspot

West Africa is well endowed with mineral resources, and many world-class deposits have been discovered there in recent years. The region is a key source of gold, iron ore, bauxite, diamonds, phosphate, uranium, and its mainly untapped mineral wealth provides exceptional greenfield development potential.

But despite increased interest in the whole spectrum of commodities in West Africa, the region is a hotspot for investment in gold exploration.

Foreign companies invested billions of dollars in gold exploration activities over the past few years, resulting in West Africa having the biggest growth rate in the yellow metal’s resources in the world.

Capital Drilling (LON:CAPD) provides specialised drilling services to mineral exploration and mining companies in emerging and developing markets, for exploration, development and production stage projects. The Company currently owns and operates a fleet of 91 drilling rigs with established operations in Botswana, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania and Tanzania. The Group’s corporate headquarters are in Mauritius.
