ModernMiningGold mining may be in the doldrums in South Africa but the industry is booming in West Africa, as this month’s News section of Modern Mining makes clear.

In Mali, B2Gold’s new Fekola mine has just poured its first gold while in neighbouring Burkina Faso the first pour at Endeavour Mining’s Houndé gold project is imminent. Endeavour has also just given the go-ahead for the Ity CIL project in Côte d’Ivoire. Yet another gold project making good progress is Toro’s Mako gold mine in Senegal, now well into construction and due to start producing early in 2018.

The new mine will be an underground operation and will produce nearly 10 000 tonnes of copper a year. The capex involved is US$135 million.
