The country’s gold mines include: Loulo Gounkoto, Yatela, Sadiola, Gounkoto, Tabakoto, Metedia, Fekola, Komana, Kondieran, Kalana, Morila, Nampala and Syama. Gold mines which are expected to enter production in the next few years include: Finkolo, Banankoro and Kobada. Mali has revised its mining code in order to make it more investor-friendly as well as incorporating sounder social and environmental considerations.

Mali is building increased capacity for the mining sector through: 1: 50,000 mapping project for the entire Birimian area, creating a modern documentation centre and the establishment of an African Mining School. The country is looking to diversify its mineral resources, 694,000 tonnes of lithium reserves have been discovered and production could start in 2022. Lithium is a key component of ion batteries in electric vehicles. Mali could become a regional hub for the export of construction materials by increasing the production of dolerite, marble, limestone and granite.
