Indeed, a decade ago, inflation reached its peak in Sudan, one of the world’s poorest countries. After this, the work of gold mining started flourishing here and people started earning money through mining.

Around 20 lakh people across the country work as traditional mine workers to find gold. They often work in semi-legal mines across Sudan. Where the conditions are very unsafe and the infrastructure is absolutely dilapidated. Despite these uncertain circumstances, 80 percent of the gold extracted from Sudan is produced by these workers, according to official figures.

According to the data, in 2020, 36.6 tonnes of gold was extracted in Sudan located in East Africa. This was the second highest gold extracted by any country in the entire continent. At the same time, for the last two years, the government of Sudan has started regulating the mining industry. This is being done when there is a danger of gold smuggling from the country. But since the coup on October 25, the country has been embroiled in a political crisis, which has also led to large-scale violence. Mining is common in African countries.
