Mining

Myanmar 2020 - Mining

Endowed with rich deposits of jade, ruby, copper, lead, zinc, tin, tungsten, silver, gold, antimony, nickel and barite, as well as a long history of mining that dates back to the 15th century, Myanmar’s mining sector has significant potential. While these rich and varied reserves indicate a bright future for the industry, there are numerous regulatory, infrastructural and societal challenges that need to be addressed before the mining sector can reach its full potential. The long-term outlook for the industry remains generally optimistic: at least seven international mining companies are looking to exploration activities and, given its potential, Myanmar is likely to continue to attract investment. This chapter contains an interview with U Ding Ying, Chairman, DELCO.
