If it is true that our country has a subsoil rich in mineral resources, the mining sector, excluding oil, contributes only 1% of the Gross Domestic Product.

"I am delighted that the mining projects I announced last year for the development of the Kribi-Lobé, Bipindi-Grand Zambi, and Mbalam-Nabeba iron ore deposits have been launched."

Fourteen (14) geological maps were surveyed at a scale of 1:200,000. This is a significant step forward considering that these maps are essential for any mining research. As a matter of fact, out of the 42 maps in Cameroon, only one had been surveyed so far by the Institute of Geological and Mining Research (IRGM) in the Poli region. The map has been updated by integrating airborne geophysical data and taking into account changes in cartographic concepts. Explanatory notes are attached to the said maps.
In terms of geochemical prospecting , the field work, which consisted in collecting stream sediments at a mesh size of 1 sample per 10 km², enabled to :
◎ produce 14 geochemical maps (there were none previously in Cameroon) showing the various elements of mining interest ;
◎ the identification of more than 700 anomalies and indicators over the entire work area.
