The mining industry in Nigeria generally continues to grow and draw more media attention yearly. While accounting for just 0.3% of the country’s GDP, it remains a lucrative one, as the future holds even more prospects.

 The greatly underdeveloped state of the mining industry causes Nigeria to import a bulk of her minerals, which could have been produced locally. Its neglect was largely caused by the discovery of oil in 1956. This affected the mineral extraction industries and caused the government’s focus to shift far off from mineral resources to oil & gas.

 Many years have long passed and the value of different mineral resources have jumped several times more than they were years ago, thereby creating a very abundant, lucrative, and largely untapped market for people who love to exploit ignored business opportunities.

 Edo State provides great opportunity for investors in the mining industry. The potentials in the sector which are available for exploitation include.
