Coping with decreased revenues from commodities, Mali is seizing the opportunity to reform Mali’s government received almost USD 450 million in revenues from the extractive industry in 2013.

This represents a 20% fall in revenue from mining companies on 2012 levels, mainly due to a decline in production and the sharp decrease in gold prices.

Amidst lower income from the sector, Mali is pursuing more openness and reform. Details of sub-contractors The inclusion of sub-contractors’ payments is of particular importance given that it is often only the sub-contractors who engage with the mine-affected communities. Also, as 10% of total government revenues come from the sector, the fiscal contribution from sub-contractors is significant. Information on the artisanal and small-scale mining sector The 2013 report provides the description of the artisanal and small-scale mining sector (ASM), which has proven resilient to lower commodity prices. With better oversight of ASM licenses since 2012 and the operation of provincial state-owned buying houses (comptoirs d’achat), small-scale gold production has remained constant at around 4 tons per year in recent years according to the Chamber of Mines.

The government has disclosed income from its 101 provincial buying houses in its unilateral reporting.
