  • 65-75 Riesgo
  • > 75 Riesgo muy

The 2015 mining code of Gabon offers its subjects and foreign participants a comprehensive package of regulation, which amply shows the draftspersons' grasp of the industry; yet, it also demonstrates a far-too common naivety in respect of economics, where government discretion translates into uncertainty and risk; some may prove willing to speculate on the hope of fair treatment and only time will tell whether the administrators of this law quash or reward such hope.

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.
