COVID-19 has undoubtedly caused a massive spike in the gold sector – which has favoured the West African region well – it is home to vast gold resources across all key countries. But when considering the mining investment potential in West Africa – one must consider the mineralization wealth that extends beyond gold. Did you know the region has the potential to become one of the world’s largest lithium producers and exporters? It also is host to cobalt and nickel ores  – all of which are needed to feed the imminently burgeoning battery metals market.
The discussion will evaluate West Africa’s mineral potential outside of gold and look at some of the strategic junior mining companies looking to develop their names and new projects in the battery metals market.
