Published December 2021, this map illustrates African resources that are considered critical for green energy technologies such as bauxite, cobalt, copper, graphite, lithium, manganese, nickel, tin, titanium and vanadium. It also shows sites cross the continent that are considered important sources of rare-earth elements (a box lists the elements).
A table shows the relative importance of critical minerals (aluminium, chromium, cobalt, copper, lithium, nickel, platinum group, rare earth minerals zinc) for clean energy technologies)
An inset map shows the location of artisanal mining of conflict minerals in eastern DR Congo (cassiterite, coltan, gold ore and wolframite).
The map is presented as a PDF file using eps graphics, meaning that there is no loss of resolution as the file is enlarged.
