As bottlenecks are eliminated, traditional rail corridors revived and new ones opened, the transport possibilities for Africa’s mining sector are multiplying.
The expansion of mining projects will depend on how countries and companies tackle Africa’s infrastructure backlog to ensure freight can move more efficiently.
Should African countries strive to develop their own refining capacities?
The African continent is particularly well-suited to renewable energy solutions and mining companies, especially at remote sites, could reap the benefit in their energy mix.
Infrastructure is paramount if Africa is to take full advantage of its myriad sources of natural gas.
