Why Gold West Africa?

In 2011, West Africa became the hub of African gold mining when the total production of gold from West Africa overtook South Africa’s gold production. While world gold mine production has been declining, West African gold production has been growing (Wood Mackenzie, 2011).


Out of the 15 ECOWAS countries, Cape Verde, Benin, and Togo are the only countries without notable gold reserves. However, Benin and Togo are notable for the gold trade. All other ECOWAS countries have either significant documented gold reserves, internationally listed gold mining companies, or significant footprint of artisanal gold mining. If you are interested in gold, Gold West Africa is where you want to be.
