Gabon Coup Underscores Country’s Role as Key Manganese Supplier

Feb 25, 2024

Eramet SA will restart production at its manganese mining operations in Gabon on Thursday, ending a temporary halt in the wake of the military coup in the country.

The Paris-based miner said late Wednesday it has decided to resume mining operations in after monitoring events in the country, after announcing earlier in the day that it would halt activity as a precautionary measure. Shares of Eramet, which has been expanding its key Moanda mine, slumped as much as 22% in Paris.
