Mining accounts for 5% of the country’s GDP and minerals make up 37% of total exports, of which gold contributes over 90% of the total mineral exports. Thus, the main focus of Ghana’s mining and minerals development industry remains focused on gold. Ghana is Africa’s 2nd largest gold producer, producing 70 t in 2003. Gold production reached 2,143 Moz in 2005. Production is dominated by homegrown Ashanti Gold Fields, which produced nearly half at 37 t from its five mining operations. Ghana is also a major producer of bauxite, manganese and diamonds.

The country currently has thirteen large-scale mining companies producing gold, diamonds, bauxite and manganese, and, there are also over three hundred registered small scale mining groups and ninety mine support service companies. Several other organisations are involved in producing building and industrial minerals in the country. In 2005 Ghana’s mining sector saw diamond production reaching to 1,065,923 ct, bauxite production reaching to 606,700 t and manganese production reaching to 1,719,589 t.

Ghana’s economic geology is centered around Proterozoic rocktypes, notably the Birimian and Tarkwian systems. The Proterozoic Birimian belt in West Africa hosts nearly all of the known gold deposits in Ghana, Burkino Faso and Cote De Ivoire. The Ashanti Gold Belt of SW Ghana, part of the volcano sedimentary Birimian Belt, includes seven producing mines. Gold mineralisation in the Birimian is mainly in the form of auriferous quartz veins of ‘reefs’ and as sulphide ore. Tarkwian system rocks consist of a thick series of argillaceous sediments resting unconformably on the Biriman. Gold is found in these sediments, occurring as blanket reefs or conglomerate beds, similar to those of the Witwatersrand in South Africa. Alluvial diamonds, about 80% of industrial grade, are produced on a large scale. Primary kimberlites have yet to be found.

Constant power supplies to mining operations have been disrupted in Ghana due to drought, resulting in a drop in production of many gold mining operations. The Volta River feeds into the Volta Dam, whose hydroelectric scheme supplies almost all of Ghana’s electricity.

Ashanti Goldfields has signed an agreement with a consortium led by KMR Power Corporation, a US based power project developer, and the Ghanaian Ministry of Mines and Energy, for support of a 220MW gas fired, combined cycle power plant. Up to 100MW of this plant’s energy will be allocated to Ashanti. Construction is underway, and full commissioning was expected to be completed before the end of 1999. In addition to this plant, a 144MW barge mounted, gas fired plant is also being constructed at Tano in the west of Ghana. Commissioning was also expected by the end of 1999.
