Africa’s mining industry, for the most part, weathered the storm of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. The sector dealt with the impact of the pandemic extremely well, leading an effective response. Most governments on the continent, acutely aware of the economic significance of mining commodities, steered clear of forcing strict restrictions on producing mining operations and their supply chains, global risk consultancy Control Risks states. Taking into consideration the existing model of far-flung mine camps across the continent, the mining industry, generally, managed to isolate itself from the outside world through on-site lockdowns and strict access controls. At sites, where a strong culture of health and safety already existed, mining companies were able to establish robust testing and isolation infrastructure, often outperforming their host governments. However, the extent, as well as the different effects, of the pandemic on mining in Africa are still unknown. Creamer Media’s ‘Africa Mining Projects in Progress 2021’ report covers more than 40 mining projects across Central, East, North, Southern and West Africa, all offering very compelling mining propositions given the current economic environment, with several excellent prospects in the pipeline.
