Cote d'Ivoire

Cote d Ivoire s new mining code is an example for others to follow (with only minor changes). It provides a level of stability and security of tenure that, in the absence of political uncertainty, should lead to enhanced investment. Its drafting reflects a sophisticated understanding of the mining industry without tangential influences of stakeholders concerned about mining activities and lacking in such knowledge; nevertheless, the potential for abuse has not been removed from the code in narrow areas of application.

Regulatory Risk Rating: 67

Regulatory Risk Rating

Measures the risk that an investor will lose the economic benefits of a mineral discovery based only on the key laws, regulations and policies in the jurisdiction – with a rating of 100 equating to zero risk.  

Corruption Potential Index

Measures a jurisdictions’ corruption potential, providing a mining specific rating based on: (1) the importance of various government decisions in the administration of mineral projects; (2) the degree of discretion associated with those decisions; (3) the number of state actors involved in decision making.

Corruption Risk Index

Measures the likelihood of government actors using discretionary powers for improper purposes, providing a mining specific corruption risk rating by mathematically screening the CPI through the lens of the Economists’ Democracy Index.
