Niger has tin, gold, and uranium mining operations. Large deposits of uranium are located in northern Niger; these reserves, which are estimated at more than 160,000 metric tons, were being exploited at a rate of 3,000 metric tons per year in the early 1990s. Uranium accounts for more than three-fourths of the country’s annual mineral exports. Salt is also mined in Niger in small quantities. Industry is limited mainly to food processing and construction.
