According to research done by Swedish Geological AB, Ethiopia can be a major international supplier of minerals, specifically copper, gold, tantalum, potash, iron ore, and coal. The following are 23 minerals in Ethiopia with their description and details. 1. Gold.
Ethiopia’s virtually untapped, diverse and vast mineral resources offer huge potential opportunities for exploration and development. These include tantalum, potash, gemstones, gold, iron ore and various industrial, energy and construction minerals, and many more.
The Ethiopian Geological Survey of the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) with assistance from UNDP and private companies have assessed the mineral and petroleum resources of Ethiopia. The resources discovered in different regions of the country are mainly gold, tantalum, phosphorus, iron, salt, potash, soda ash, gemstones, coal, geothermal and natural gas, apart from many industrial and construction materials. Other mineral resources are platinum, niobium, copper, nickel, manganese and molybdenum; marble is

26-01-2015· However, despite having a huge potential to contribute to Ethiopia’s economy, the development of oil, gas, and mineral resources are not among the key drivers of the country’s growth. Although the country has geological potential for the discovery of new, sizeable oil, gas and mineral deposits, most of its extractive industry is still in its infancy stage.
Major Natural Resources In Ethiopia . The country has a few known reserves of precious metals and other natural resources such as gold, potash, natural gas, copper, and platinum. In addition to all these resources, there is also an extensive potential for the generation of hydropower. However, the most abundant natural resource is arguably natural gas.
Kumsa further said that dozens of Chinese firms have been recently awarded licenses in the exploration and production of various mineral resources across mineral-rich parts of Ethiopia. Minerals such as gold, iron-ore, various types of precious stones, chemicals, oil and natural gas, as well as construction inputs are among the mineral resources in which Chinese firms are presently exerting their capital and
27-05-2019· Ethiopia has different types of mineral resources, ranging from gold, platinum, potash, to iron, oil and gas reserve. In February this year, governments of Ethiopia and Djibouti had contracted a Chinese firm, Poly-GCL Petroleum Group Holdings Limited (Poly-GCL), to construct the 767 km Ethiopia-Djibouti natural gas pipeline.
