Eritrea’s potential lies in its mineral resources, yet the government has failed to take full advantage of these. Mineral deposits in Eritrea include gold, silver, copper, zinc and potash as well as nickel and chromite. In 2011, activities in the mining sector picked up with the onset of commercial mining and exports of gold and silver at the Bisha mine operated by Canada’s Nevsun Resources Ltd. According to Capitaleritrea news records, the Bisha mine is expected to produce 30.05 million grams of gold, 266.48 million grams of silver, 332.93 million kilogrammes of copper, and more than 450 billion grams of zinc over its 10-year mine life.
