Beyond the 'Wild West' : The Gold Rush in Northern Niger.
/ : Mathieu Pellerin. - Geneva : the Small Arms Survey, Security Assessment in North Africa Project, 2017.
This Briefing Paper examines how the gold rush in northern Niger has affected the security, political, and socio-economic dynamics of this sensitive region. The first part discusses the mechanics of the gold rush, which started in 2014: the nature of the mining sites, the various participants, and the (limited) role of the state in the region. The second part focuses on the effects of the gold rush on northern Niger: increased local wealth and new elites on the one hand, more banditry and arms trafficking on the other. It notes, however, that there is little evidence of gold mining providing material or financial support to extremist groups. And while the wealth of some miners and local businesspeople who transport miners and supply them with necessities increased, the local economic upturn did not spread to the national economy. The paper concludes that future mining will need to industrialize to access deposits deeper underground, now that surface gold deposits are largely exhausted. This change may result in increased socio-economic and security instability, both in northern Niger and in the wider region.
An elemental force: Uranium production in Africa, and what it means to be nuclear.
/ Gabrielle Hecht. Bulletin of the Atomic Scientist, March/April 2012; 68 (2).
'Uranium from Africa was, and remains, a major source of fuel for atomic weapons and power plants throughout the world. Uranium for the Hiroshima bomb, for example, came from the Belgian Congo. During any given year of the Cold War, between 20 percent and 50 percent of the Western world's uranium came from African places: Congo, Niger, South Africa, Gabon, Madagascar, and Namibia.'
Environmental governance of uranium mining in Niger – a blind spot for development cooperation?

'Deserts are among the most poorly monitored and understood biomes in the world, with evidence suggesting that their biodiversity is declining fast. Oil exploration and exploitation can constitute an important threat to fragmented and remnant desert biodiversity, yet little is known about where and how intensively such developments are taking place. This lack of information hinders local efforts to adequately buffer and protect desert wildlife against encroachment from anthropogenic activity. Here, we investigate the use of freely available satellite imagery for the detection of features associated with oil exploration in the African Sahelo-Saharan region. We demonstrate how texture analyses combined with Landsat data can be employed to detect ground-validated exploration sites in Algeria and Niger.'
Uranium from Niger; energy for France… Uranium from Niger; energy for France; pollution for local communities: contextualising a problematic tricycle / : Nene Diallo.European Agency for Energy Security, 2012.
Uranium mining in Niger has raised various and significant environmental and political concerns in the Northern area of the country. Most of the Uranium produced in Niger is exported to France in order to sustain France’s electricity production. Whereas France enjoys electricity, local communities in Arlit and Akokan suffer from pollution, unemployment, health issues and sub-standard or non-existent education. Niger is the world’s third to fifth largest uranium exporter with annual production estimated at 3,243 tonnes, 64% of export revenues.
