Sierra Leone is a country on the southwest coast of West Africa endowed with rich natural resources. The mining industry is dominated by large-scale producers of Iron ore, Rutile and Bauxite as well as small-scale and artisanal mining of Gold and Diamonds. The country possesses one of the largest rutile reserves in the world. It has an estimated population of 8,193,427 (2021) that grows at an annual rate of 2.1%. It has a GDP of $3.87 Billion (2020) according to World Bank. The country is characterized by a humid tropical climate which makes Sierra Leone the wettest country in West Africa. Sierra Leone’s economy stems from its rich natural resources but is still recovering from a civil war (1991 – 2002) that destroyed most Institutions. Agriculture, as the primary occupation, employs two-thirds of the labor force and accounts for 66.8 percent of the country’s GDP (CIA, 2013). In addition, the country is among the largest producers of titanium and bauxite, a major producer of gold, and in the top ten diamond-producing nations.
