Ministry of Mining

This is the first time Kenya has a stand alone Ministry responsible for mining. For some time, Kenyans have had a discourse on the significant potential and untapped wealth of our mineral resources. The creation of this Ministry will focus attention on this sector with the aim of growing our national wealth.

The Ministry will develop an inventory and mapping of mineral resources, and will promote a modern mining and extractive industry for the benefit of Kenyans.
