The Performance of Small Mines in Namibia and the Region

Development Southern Africa, Vol. 13, No. 1, February 1996

Posted: 29 Sep 2003

Abstract

Both large and medium-sized mines in southern Africa are contributing less to the economy owing to rising production costs and poor demand for minerals. Politicians argue that small mines can make an important contribution. But this analysis shows that small mines face real contraints and that there clear prospects only in semiprecious and dimension stones. Specific research is needed to help small mines overcome their limitations.
