Gold Mining in Nigeria. Abundant gold deposits exist in Northern Nigeria in Anka, Maru, Malele, Tsohon, Osun, Birnin, Gwari Kwaga, Bin Yauri, Gurmana and Iperindo. Production started in 1913 and peaked in the 1930s before declining during the war. Mines were abandoned and like the coal industry, the gold mining industry also didnt recover.
