Created in 2000, the Bureau du Cadastre Minier de Madagascar (Mining Cadastral Office) is the only organism in charge of mining permits in Madagascar.

Currently, 30% of existing mining permits have a small scale mininglicense(PRE), 60% are Exploration License (PR) and only 10% are Exploitation License (PE). It is possible to make a joint venture with mining companies already established in Madagascar.

Recently the BCMM is in charge of the international promotion of the Malagasy mining, with this in mind, the Mining Business Center (MBC) was created – a tribute to the richness of the Malagasy basement.


MBC is the official front office of the Malagasy mining sector to facilitate the steps between professionals and be a one-stop shop for individuals. All the structures of the mining administration related to the mining operators will be gathered on this site.
