For more than 1000 years, Ghana, first known as the Gold Coast, has produced a significant amount of the world’s gold. According to GoldHub, this African country is one of the largest gold producers that hosts more estimated reserves than most of the other top gold-producing countries. Indeed, its output of circa 4.0 million troy ounces per year brings the country to rank as the 7th largest gold producer in the World. Ghana’s rich gold endowment has helped it to become Africa’s continental leader in gold mining in 2019 and has attracted major mining companies like Newmont, Kinross, Goldfields, Golden Star, and Perseus.

Ghana is also benefiting from the recently concluded African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). Africa is rising and over the next 40 years is projected to be one of the world’s largest trade and economic zones, a market of 1.2 billion people and GDP estimated at US$2.5 trillion.

A mining-friendly country, Ghana has two mining colleges and a local well-trained workforce. Gold mining is deeply rooted in its economy, with almost every family having someone in the sector. Indeed, in the past 20 years, gold production increased in the order of 700%, resulting in a nowadays contribution of 37% of national exports.
