Mining and Extractive

The mining sector has seen considerable increase in activities and accounts for a significant portion of national income. However, 2015 saw a fall in international iron ore prices which had an adverse effect on extractive activities nationwide. 2016 saw a gradual resumption of extractive activities.

The sector is jointly regulated by the Ministry of Mines and Mineral Resources (MMMR) and the National Mineral Agency (NMA).

BDO Sierra Leone provides some of the extractive companies with assurance, tax and other regulatory compliance services. The firm has also been involved in preparing the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) reports.
