And, what minerals are mined in Nigeria? The solid mineral resources in Nigeria include tin, iron ore, coal, limestone, niobium, lead and zinc. Others are gold, talc, rock salt, gypsum, bitumen, gemstones, kaolin, tantalite and columbite.
Gold Mining in Nigeria Abundant gold deposits exist in Northern Nigeria in Anka, Maru, Malele, Tsohon, Osun, Birnin, Gwari-Kwaga, Bin Yauri, Gurmana and Iperindo. Production started in 1913 and peaked in the 1930s before declining during the war. Mines were abandoned and like the coal industry, the gold mining industry also didn’t recover.
Research shows that mining of minerals in Nigeria accounts for only 0.3% of its GDP. This is traced to the influence of Nigeria’s vast oil resources. Therefore, the domestic mining industry is underdeveloped. In fact, this has led to Nigeria having to import minerals
During the 1900s, Nigeria produced a variety of minerals such as tin and columbite as well as industrial minerals such as limestone. Production in Nigeria was then a significant contributor to the country‟s GDP. Organized mining began in 1903 when the Mineral Survey of the Northern Protectorates was created by the British colonial government.
Mining is a very nice business, but the solid mineral business in Nigeria is not only about mining. It is a lucrative industry with opportunities for large scale, small scale, and cooperative societies. There are different kinds of licenses available. Like I wrote earlier, one

Mining in Nigeria is the process by which solid minerals and other useful substances are extracted from the earth. The geological survey of Nigeria has indicated the presence of over 34 minerals that are currently being mined in more than 450 locations spread all over the country.
Mining is said to have started in Nigeria in 1903 when the Northern protectorate was surveyed. Mining of gold in Nigeria started around the year 1910, but the gold exploration momentum was affected by the second world war. The white men expatriates who lead the exploration course left the country because of the war. After the war, Gold exploration in Nigeria has never regained the momentum again.
The high riskiness of mining in Nigeria is due to the fact that the mineral Sector in Nigeria is mainly driven by the artisanal and small scale miners who embark on low technology and crude/traditional methods in their activities. They are exposed to high risk from dangerous metals such as lead and radioactive waste. Cases of transcend of the limit considered healthy has been recorded in some mining locations in
