Mining Industry in Morocco and Drâa-Tafilalet region

Morocco is rich in mineral resources, with the mining sector accounting for around 10 percent of the country’s GDP. Besides the abundance of phosphate which accounts for 70 percent of global reserves, Morocco also has gold, silver, copper, zinc and cobalt deposits.

Within the Drâa-Tafilalet region, the main resource is the industrial mineral barite, with production exceeding 2/3 of the national production. Globally, Morocco is also the 3rd largest producer of barite, which is most commonly for oil and gas drilling rigs.
