Industry & Mining

Algeria Industry & Mining

The largest country in Africa, Algeria remains mainly underexplored as regards non-hydrocarbons mineral deposits, pointing to major potential opportunities in the mining sector. The authorities are keen to develop the industry, not only in order to boost minerals output itself, but also to provide raw materials for a range of emerging industries. The new mining law and the incentives it contains should help to attract additional interest, while new rail connections should ease logistics connections for miners’ output. This chapter contains interviews with Ali Boumediene, CEO, Bomare; and Reda Hechelaf, CEO, SOPI.
