BMI View: The mining industry is becoming increasingly critical to Angola's
economy and plays a key part in the government's national development plan as it
looks to diversify and lessen its dependence on revenues from oil and gas
exports. Gradual restriction of mining industry regulations has encouraged
increased international investment in recent years, and the government is
activity courting partnerships with China and other governments as it looks to
create much-needed infrastructure. At present the diamond mining segment is the
most developed sub-sector by a considerable distance, though there are
opportunities for exploiting the country's sizeable iron ore and coal deposits.
Latest Updates And Developments
■ Appeals by Angola's government to the IMF in April 2016 further outline the
government's increasing need to spur development of the mining industry as it
looks to reduce its reliance on oil and gas exports in the wake of a global
collapse in energy prices. In the same month the government officially opened
the Tcheji mine, which is being developed by Sociedade Mineira do Tcheji. The
mine, which spans the Lunda Norte and Lunda Sul provinces, is expected to
produce 3,000 carats per month in its initial stages.
