It was reported that in the late 1980s, the mineral industry lacked importance given, and contributed less than 0.2 percent of Ethiopia’s GDP.

Mining for gold is a key development sector in the country. Gold export, which was just US$5 million in 2001, recorded a large increase to US$602 million in 2012.
