Factbox

Ghana has traditionally been a rich country in minerals, with the industry dominated by gold, diamond, bauxite and manganese. Ghana is the world’s 10th gold producer, and Africa’s 2nd after South Africa. From 2000 – 2005 gold made up 33% of the country’s total goods exports.

In 2007, significant oil reserves were discovered offshore. Commercial extraction of the Jubilee field, as it is now known, began in December 2010.
