Mining is the extraction of mineral occurring naturally such as coal, ores, crude petroleum and natural gas. In view of their significance to the Nigerian economy and peculiarities, the compilation of statistics of petroleum and natural gas (which are coded as division 11 of the ISIC) is discussed separately from that of solid minerals.
The mining of minerals in Nigeria accounts for only 0.3% of its GDP, due to the influence of its vast oil resources. The domestic mining industry is underdeveloped, leading to Nigeria having to import minerals that it could produce domestically, such as salt or iron ore. Rights to ownership of mineral resources is held by the Federal government of Nigeria, which grants titles to organizations to explore, mine, and sell mineral resources. Organized mining began in 1903 when the Mineral Survey of the Northern Protector

Now I will discuss the major solid minerals starting with coal. Coal was first discovered in 1909 in the South Eastern state of Enugu in Nigeria and it’s exploration began at Ogbete Mine in 1916. This coal of Nigeria happens to be among the best coal in the globe because of it’s low sulphur and ash content which resulted in an ecofriendly coal.
