Mineral Policy and Development Economics


Resource development decisions will impact society for generations to come. Therefore it is important that governments implement sound policies to strengthen sector governance and enable economic growth. Kai Batla in also undertakes strategic regional mineral scans. These studies highlight resource potential, infrastructure requirements, and advantages of ordered development and clustering of projects. These studies also provide preliminary economic analysis and identify downstream development opportunities. Kai Batla uses an analytical methodology that takes a spatial view of a region, identifying potential anchor projects and a supporting spine that can be built upon the region’s natural endowments. These can then act as a catalyst for the development of other mineral, tourism and agricultural projects.

Services include:
• Mineral scans
• Policy impact assessments
• Input into mineral policy development
• Strategic mineral resources reviews
• Identify policy directions to facilitate cluster development
• Map economic clusters and upstream economic linkages
