Djibouti: Mineral Industry Overview
September 30th, 2011

(HornTrade) – In 2009, the small East African country of Djibouti was a producer of perlite, salt, and such construction materials as basalt (table 1). Djibouti’s production and consumption of minerals were not globally significant.

Production

Salt production started on a semi-industrial scale at Lake Assal in 1998. Production increased from 2004 to 2008 because of the resumption of demand from Ethiopia. Production had nearly ceased in 2004 because of a 53% tariff that Ethiopia imposed in October 2003 on salt imports from Djibouti. Perlite mining started in 2009.

Structure of the Mineral Industry

Salt production at Lake Assal and perlite production were carried out by privately owned companies. Small amounts of salt were also produced at Doraleh by artisanal miners.

Gold

Deccan Gold Mines Ltd. of India and JB Djibouti Mining Ltd. (a subsidiary of JB Group of India) started gold exploration at the Asaleyta and the Hesdaba properties in February 2008. The companies engaged in channel sampling and drilling at Asaleyta and Hesdaba; gold mineralization was epithermal (Deccan Gold Mines Ltd., 2009, p. 10).

Perlite

In April 2009, the Government granted JB Djibouti Mining a mining license for a perlite deposit near Ageralayta. JB Djibouti Mining started a pilot mining project; the company planned to start large-scale mining in August 2009 (JB Group, 2009).

Salt

Djibouti’s salt production was limited by reliance on the Ethiopian market, the absence of reliable water and energy supply, and an inadequate regulatory framework. Other constraints included poor working conditions and a lack of iodization machinery (Geographic Environmental Solutions, 2008, p. 12).

Société d’Exploitation du Lac Assal’s salt mining operation on the shore of Lake Assal had a capacity of 86,000 metric tons per year. Salt Investment SAZF [a joint venture of Emerging Capital Partners LLC (ECP) of the United States, Hardtechnologies Group of Spain, and Société d’Exploitation du Lac Assal] planned to complete a new salt mining operation and processing plant at Lake Assal with a capacity of 4 million metric tons per year by June 2010. The company planned to export 85% of its production to Middle Eastern countries for use in the chemical industry and 15% to Europe and North America for use in road deicing (Geographic Environmental Solutions, 2008, p. 12; Feytis, 2009).

Seriously, mining licences for gold and perlite explorations are awarded and we have no access on how our natural resources are being handled. The government needs to be more transparent otherwise this will just fuel an already alarming corruption.

As for the salt, exportation was supposed to start last year. Our country has the world's second largest salt reserves, as mentioned in the article, the plan was to export 4 millions tonnes of salt per year. Where are we? What happened to these plans? How much would that industry generate? How many people will it employ? So many unanswered questions...

Dont wanna sound pessimistic but Africa's natural ressources have always been subjugated to the IMF and the global capitalist corporations.

*Best Definition of Life (by the Creator of the Game Himself SWT )
"Sachez que la vie présente n’est que J.E.U, amusement, vaine parure, une course à l’orgueil entre vous et une rivalité dans l’acquisition des richesses et des enfants. Elle est en cela pareille à une pluie: la végétation qui en vient émerveille les cultivateurs, puis elle se fane et tu la vois donc jaunie; ensuite elle devient des débris. Et dans l’au-delà, il y a un dur châtiment, et aussi pardon et agrément d’Allah. Et la vie présente n’est que jouissance trompeuse. " Coran sourate 57, verset 20
