• Raw Materials & Mining in Rwanda

    The African continent is very rich of minerals. This mineral wealth could make a tremendous contribution to the economic development of the continent. Still, the African mining sector serves primarily as a source of raw minerals exported for processing in Europe and Asia. Many countries are struggling to add value to the minerals they extract. In 2011, the Evert Vermeer Stichting visited Rwanda and executed an extensive research on Rwanda's mining sector.

  • Coltan: Conflict minerals in Congo

    Fungamwaka - a mine in the east of Congo. These men work so that we can make telephone calls. They are mining coltan, which is indispensable for the production of mobile phones. The Democratic Republic of Congo is the world’s second-largest supplier of this rare mineral. Fungamwaka is a model mine. There is no child labour, state controls are carried out, taxes are paid. Those in charge of the mine operate legally. And above all there are no militia groups who finance themselves by smuggling resources. The long civil war is the biggest problem in east Congo - funded by the resource wealth in the ground. Ninety percent of the mines are managed by small-scale miners in remote border areas - an El Dorado for rebel groups who demand a share of the yield and sell it the global market via n...

  • Rwanda: Foreign reserves slide after mining revenues tumble

    Rwanda has said it expects its official foreign exchange reserves, to fall after a dip in the prices of its mineral exports. This month, Rwanda secured an 18-month $204 million standby facility from the IMF to bolster reserves. The IMF said reserves stood at $817 million at the end of March. Rwanda has a policy of keeping its foreign exchange reserves at above three months of import cover. Despite the commodity price shock, Rwanda's economy grew at 6.9 percent in 2015 and is forecast to expand by 6 percent in both 2016 and 2017. The exchange rate has however come under pressure and the current account deficit has widened. Reserves would slide to 3.2 months import cover by the end of 2016 and 2.5 months at end-2017, before rising to 2.9 months by the end of 2018.

Ninety percent of the mines are managed by small-scale miners in remote border areas - an El Dorado for rebel groups who demand a share of the yield and sell it the global market via neighbouring countries like Rwanda. The ore is separated from the sand with a shovel, just like in the old gold-digging days. The price of tin has dropped to 5 euros a kilo in the provincial capital; at least coltan still fetches 20 euros. That is why organisations like Misereor have been demanding for a long time that organisations should be legally obliged to ensure that human rights standards are maintained throughout their supply chain from raw materials to finished product- and to cover the costs of this. In Fungamwaka it’s only the miners who pay for the controls- they earn less. www.misereor.org twitter: http://www.twitter.com/misereor
