These are two of the operations
listed in our databases, which list all oil-and-gas and mining operations in Australia
and give you details of the key people involved in them.
For companies servicing these
sectors in Australia,
the databases are comprehensive and cost-effective marketing tools.
The oil-and-gas database was released in December 2017.
An updated version of the mining
database is being released in state sections during February 2018. The database was first
released in early 2017.
The databases are updated every

WEST AFRICA: EVEN THE DOGS WORE GOLD
14 February 2018
“Round their necks, the dogs wear collars of gold and silver”.
So commented a 10th-century Arab visitor to the court of the old empire of Ghana.
Gold has been produced in West Africa for at least 1,500 years. Between the years 400 and 1500, the region was the world’s largest source of gold.
West Africa continues to attract gold miners from around the world.
For example, in the southeast corner of Mali, the Australian company, Resolute Mining, is planning an underground extension of its operating open-cut mine, Syama.
Underground construction is underway, with production to commence by late 2018.
The same company is also planning the Bibiani gold mine in Ghana, with forecast annual production of 100,000 ounces.
Other significant Australian gold projects in the region include Yaouré in Ivory Coast (Perseus Mining), Makabingui in Senegal (Bassari Resources) and Sanbrado in Burkino Faso (West African Resources).
Perseus Mining already has two operating gold mines in West Africa in the region.
Gold-mining companies from other parts of the world - such as Canada, United States and South Africa - are also active in the region.
Speaking at the Africa Down Under conference in Perth in September 2017, the Australian Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, noted that “at least 170 Australian extractives companies are operating across 35 African countries … and have invested more than $30 billion directly” in these countries.
Australia mining companies have a greater presence in Africa than in any other region of the world outside Australia.
And this is likely to continue if the Australia-Africa Minerals & Energy Group is correct in its view that “resources development will remain a cornerstone of African economic development for the remainder of the 21st century”.
