Mining in Madagascar... 

Rio Tinto and the Sumitomo-Korea Resources-SNC-Lavalin consortium are the largest investors in the mining sector in Madagascar with the 2006 Fort Dauphin mineral sands and 2010 Ambatovy laterite nickel developments respectively. Both are large scale long life operations which required in-country investments of approximately US$900 million and US$7.0 billion respectively.
