Despite signs of recession and low global commodity prices, the Nigerian mining industry has certainly witnessed some phenomenal developments within the past 10 months, but a lot of progress still needs to be made to develop the sector, and bring about the required grass root impact for a country in dire need of alternative sources of foreign exchange. This is expected to be achieved in the medium to longer term within the Nigerian mining sector. On another note, in August 2016, the mining road map was approved by the President and a bill proposing the creation of a regulator will be the next step for the development of the industry. The new legislation is including incentives such as allowing full foreign ownership of mining projects in order to attract investments and economic growth.
