Gabon was considered to be the wealthiest mining region of West Africa but the country remained mostly unexplored due to a lack of infrastructure.

According to a strategic plan to increase its mining industry, Gabon has built more roads last year than during the last ten years, opening the way to  unleash the huge mining potential.

The Minister for Mines, HE Regis Immongault, will be making a presentation about his country’s future potential to interested conference delegates from both government and industry.
