Despite the recent challenges to the industry globally, the interest in Nigeria's mining future has not receded. The small-scale mining sector in particular, is ripe with opportunities for development.
"The UK has many years of experience in the mining sector and over time, has developed an array of solutions and technologies that can change how mining is done," says Oluwaseyi Adepoju, Trade Advisor at the UK DIT. "The goal is to join forces to create a safer prosperous mining sector in Nigeria," he adds.
High-level speakers at opening
