Kenya is the commercial and logistical hub of East Africa. It has the largest economy in the East Africa region and the fourth largest economy in Sub-Saharan Africa. The country is home to a broad range of international firms who utilize Kenya's well established infrastructure as a regional base. The Kenyan Government is committed to providing a stable environment to attract economic investment.
Kenya's mining economy lags significantly behind its bordering neighbours with whom it shares a number of known mineral belts, particularly Tanzania to the south. Tanzania's recent mining and exploration success is well documented with over 50 million ounces of gold resources identified along the same Archean greenstone belt extending into Kenya, including Anglo Gold's Geita deposit and African Barrick's Bulyanhulu, Buzwagi and North Mara deposits.
Kenya is also known in the East Africa region for its large pool of trained and well-educated professionals, fluent in English. Kenya's tremendous exploration potential together with a stable political environment, growing economy, established infrastructure, skilled labour force, and a soon-to-be updated Mining Law all combine to make Kenya an attractive destination for mining investment.
