The mining sector in Chad remains largely undeveloped although preliminary studies conducted by the United Nations Development Program and the Chad Direction de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (DRGM) suggest that there is much potential. Highly prospective areas for gold, bauxite, uranium, silver and alluvial diamonds have been identified.

The mineral industry is poised to become a significant segment of Chad's economy. Its mineral resources include uranium, natron, kaolin, gold, limestone, soda ash, stone, sand, gravel and salt.
