    Afghanistan's mineral riches are attracting global attention. The government has asked for tenders to develop iron ore mines, just part of mineral wealth that could be worth trillions of dollars.

  • Mining for minerals in Afghanistan

    Afghanistan is estimated to have $3 trillion worth of mineral deposits, which through years of insecurity have remained unexploited. Gold, iron ore, copper ore, emeralds, lapis, rubies as well as natural gas are all found in the north of the country. Now with help from advisors from the US Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO), the Afghanistan Geological Survey is gaining the skills it needs to explore and exploit the country's resources. Geologists and drillers are being trained to investigate sites to test for the presence of resources.

The video explores the Afghan authorities’ work at Mes Aynak - the world's 2nd largest copper deposit and, a hugely important archaeological site - and UNESCO / DAFA’ s new activities in Hajigak-Bamiyan, where the Afghan government has a better chance of completing heritage assessment and protection before extractive mining starts.

  • WoW! $1 Trillion Trove of 'Rare Minerals' Revealed Under Afghanistan!

    http://www.undergroundworldnews.com Despite being one of the poorest nations in the world, Afghanistan may be sitting on one of the richest troves of minerals in the world, valued at nearly $1 trillion, according to U.S. scientists. Afghanistan, a country nearly the size of Texas, is loaded with minerals deposited by the violent collision of the Indian subcontinent with Asia. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began inspecting what mineral resources Afghanistan had after U.S.-led forces drove the Taliban from power in the country in 2004. As it turns out, the Afghanistan Geological Survey staff had kept Soviet geological maps and reports up to 50 years old or more that hinted at a geological gold mine. http://news.yahoo.com/1-trillion-trove-rare-minerals-revealed-under-afghanistan-1145202...

    In this episode of 6:30 Report, host Tariq Majidi looks at evidence that reveals the extent of ongoing illegal extraction of minerals from mines in 31 provinces of Afghanistan. The program show that the Ministry of Mines has been run by a caretaker minister for more than a year and this has led to a decrease in investments in the mining sector and has also helped contractor companies evade taxes amounting to millions of AFs. The probe reveals that contractor companies owe more than 4 billion AFs to the Ministry of Mines. In addition, two former ministers of mines, Mohamamd Akbar Barikzai and Wahidullah Shahrani owe the ministry 2.5 million AFs and more than one million AFs respectively for purchasing equipment for their houses.

Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?
