Mining
Over the nation’s history, mining has been one of the leading export sectors in the Liberian economy. Now a number of companies such as ArcelorMittal and BHP Billiton are investing billions of dollars into the sector. Besides a vast amount of iron ore deposits, there are still substantial amounts of gold (experts recently projected a find of 1.5 million ounces of gold in Cape Mount Country), uranium, zinc, lead and bauxite. This naturally-blessed nation is looking to re-establish itself as one of the top locations for mining corporations in Africa. Additionally, the UN sanctions on diamonds have now been lifted as Liberia complies with the Kimberly Process of Origin Certification. The country is now able to export its rough diamonds legally to other Kimberly Process Members.
