Opportunities in Mineral Value Addition

More than 80% of the country has been surveyed for mineral quantities and locations. New geo-data shows that Uganda has large underexploited mineral deposits of gold, oil, high grade tin, tungsten/wolfram, salt, beryllium, cobalt, kaolin, iron ore, glass sand, vermiculite, phosphates (agricultural fertiliser), uranium and rare earth elements. 

There are also significant quantities of clay and gypsum. Investment opportunities exist in mining and mineral processing with special incentives provided to the mining sector, including writing off capital expenditures in full.
