BMI View: We expect West Africa's mining sector to undergo rapid growth as companies are attracted to the region's sizeable mineral deposits. Iron ore will be the centre of this transformation as abundant high-grade reserves in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Cote d'Ivoire offer unrivalled opportunities. However, risks to this bullish outlook remain weighted to the downside, with weak global iron ore prices, insufficient infrastructure and political concerns top of the list.

West Africa will exhibit some of the fastest rates of growth in iron ore production over the coming years which will make the region a major export hub by 2018. We expect steady growth in gold production in Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire and Burkina Faso, however we highlight that weak gold prices will squeeze margins for gold miners and precipitate mine closures where cash costs become unsustainable.
