MINING

Cameroon has a wide variety of largely untapped mineral resources, although most have been at least partly documented. In many instances comprehensive survey work has been carried out.

Currently, the only mining operations are: Oil, the major export commodity, with a refinery near Limbe; Limestone for a major cement plant in Douala; An aluminum smelter at Edea, although most of the bauxite is imported from Guinea; And Artisan gold mining in East Province.

The country has known reserves of bauxite, iron ore, cassiterite (tin), sapphires, rubies, diamonds, gold, molybdenum, rutile, uranium, natural gas, and in fact most known minerals.
