Zimbabwe is richly endowed with 60 different economically exploitable mineral resources including gold, diamonds, platinum group of metals (PGM), Lithium and graphite which the Government has targeted under the Zimbabwe Agenda for Sustainable Socio-Economic Transformation (Zim Asset) to beneficiate and add value to.

Beneficiation and value addition of minerals before export is one of the four key pillars of Zimbabwe’s goal to create value, employment and accelerated industrial development from its largely unexploited mineral resources.

Government has initially prioritized diamonds, chrome, PGM’s, nickel and coal bed methane and will utilize mineral sector and related industries to develop mining input industries and services.
