  • Ghana presents a number of opportunities in the mining sector, especially in the gold industry. It is the
    second largest gold producer in Africa, after South Africa and 10th largest globally. The other important
    mineral resources are oil, diamond, bauxite (used in the manufacturing of aluminum), and manganese
    (an important input in steelmaking).
    Despite possessing interesting mining opportunities, there are some infrastructure issues impacting
    operations in Ghana. While the government is making concerted and effective efforts to address problems
    in electricity supply, deficient transport infrastructure is a problem that will take more time to solve.
    Despite having a generally sound economic and business environment, the current main issues with
    investment in Ghana’s mining sector are economic, and the most serious is the government’s fiscal policy.
    In recent years, there have been worrying indications of fiscal slippage, and this has had an effect on the
    exchange rate and on interest rates. To address the budget deficit (which stood at 11.8percent of GDP
    in 2012), the government has reduced subsidies and increased taxes, raising the cost of doing business.
    Value-added tax (VAT) was raised in 2013, and there is talk of introducing a windfall tax. These new burdens,
    coupled with wage demands from workers who see their purchasing power eroded by inflation, are making
    the operating environment increasingly difficult for miners and some mining companies have already had to
    mothball parts of their operations.
