The legal framework governing the environment has also improved considerably since 2006, in particular thanks to the adoption of texts that stipulate that all mining operations, whether industrial or semi-industrial, must be systematically preceded by an environmental and social impact assessment and approved by the issuance of an environmental compliance certificate. The existing regulatory framework (the mining code) remains ill-adapted, however, preventing real profits from being made from extractive activities (fees per square kilometre, for example, are CFAf150 (US$0.30) for prospecting and CFAf2,250 (US$4.55) for exploration).
