Most of South Sudan's mineral and oil wealth is as yet unexploited.

 

Several international investors are already operating in the South Sudan's largest export sector. With independence (and the lifting of sanctions), new opportunities arise for investors to expand oil exploration and production, as well as prospect and develop other mineral resources:

 

  1. Develop local refining and fuel storage capacity
  2. Oil & Gas exploration and production: less than 50% of suspected oil reserves currently exploited
  3. Develop Oil & Gas refineries and oil pipelines connecting neighbour countries (Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia)


Geological studies and prospecting, have uncovered that South Sudan has considerable deposits of various mineral ferrous and non ferrous such as gold, iron, uranium, copper, limestone, marble, granite, chromium, zinc, tungsten, mica and magnetite; as well as gemstones, petroleum and other chemicals.
