The gold mining industry in Myanmar holds great potential, and certain gold exploration targets have not been thoroughly explored. Belarus mineral ministry said that Myanmar has accepted its application to participate in the development of deposits of gold, copper and tin. The former soviet state said that it will start developing valuable minerals in Myanmar soon. From February 28 to March 6, 2012, a group of Belarusian experts stayed in Myanmar to ascertain the development and mining prospects.


A preliminary analysis reveals that Myanmar is rich in ore minerals. The Government of Belarus will be handed the analysis of geological prospects of selected locations in Myanmar, including the feasibility of commercial development of the mineral deposits unearthed during the exploration. The analysis will be provided by the Department of Geology at the Ministry of Natural Resources.


The Myanmar Mining Summit in Yangon on 11-12 July, will officially review Myanmar mining law and fiscal regime, current status of the mining industry, update on the NEW investment laws, investment opportunities, and provide an all-encompassing outlook of the mining prospects in Myanmar. Dr. Ye Myint Swe, Director General, Ministry of Mines, Department of Geological Survey & Mineral Exploration (DGSE), will speak at length on ‘Geological Outlook & Survey of Myanmar’s Minerals & Resources’.  To attend this event, Register here.

Last month, the Obama Administration announced that it will suspend restrictions on U.S. investment in Myanmar’s mining industry. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said during a meeting with Myanmar’s Foreign Minister U Wunna Maung Lwin, “First, let me say that our presumption is that our companies will be able to deal in every sector of the economy with any business. ...The presumption is that our oil and gas companies, our mining companies, our financial services companies are all now free to look for investments that can be mutually benefits to Burma and them."


Sen. Jim Webb, D-Virginia, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations East Asian and Pacific Affairs Subcommittee noted that the European Union lifted its sanctions against Burma, as did mining powers Australia and Canada. He also remarked that, "The President has wider powers with respect to economic sanctions and he should use them to lift all economic sanctions."


Reports by the U.S Geological Survey show that a variety of mineral commodities including cement, coal, copper, lead, precious & semiprecious stones, tins, tungsten and zinc are produced in Myanmar. According to the Financial Times, Caterpillar and other U.S. companies are already involved in businesses in Myanmar via third parties.   Meanwhile, France, South Korea, Thailand and China have invested in Myanmar’s extractive industries. The State of Myanmar and the China Nonferrous Metal Mining Company own the Tagaung Taung Nickel Mine, Myanmar’s biggest mining project.


As more countries lift sanctions and promote business relations with Myanmar, companies and conglomerates are actively on the lookout for the latest updates. Hence the Myanmar Mining Summit is timed aptly, coming soon on 23-24 July in Yangon, with key official speakers who will examine the country’s mining scenario, as well as other major economic developments. This conference is the 1st Official Summit organised with the Ministry of Mines, and His Excellency U Thein Htike, Union Minister of Mines will grace the event with the Keynote Address.

Australia has made a move to lift sanctions against Myanmar’s President, as well as over 200 civilians who were under travel and financial bans EU may also formally announce next week, that while sanctions may be suspended for 6 months to 1 year, it may not be lifted altogether.  While Australia’s ban on defence exports remains unchanged, and Canberra does not impose general trade sanctions, suspension of EU sanctions is likely to bring in investments to the country, largely because it neighbours China and India, the world’s two biggest markets.


This decision came after a joint call to lift the sanctions against Myanmar was issued by British Prime Minister David Cameron and Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. The British Prime Minister also said, "We want to see the further release of political prisoners, we want to see the resolution of ethnic conflicts, we want the democratization process to continue."


With travel ban lifted coupled with government reforms plus emerging opportunities in the mining sector, the time is apt for the Myanmar Mining Summit to be held in Yangon on 11-12 July. The first of its kind meeting of industry officials and global investment community will review the latest in Myanmar’s mines and mining jurisdictions, investment opportunities, the processes involved in securing mining exploration licenses/ventures and many more


Details of the event are currently being finalized and will be available shortly. Pre-Register to reserve seats now! For queries, email
