Mount Nimba Strict Nature Reserve

Threats to the Site (1992)

The Reserve was inscribed on the List of the World Heritage in Danger as a result of two factors:

  • a proposed iron-ore mining concession to an international consortium;
  • the arrival of a large number of refugees to areas in and around the Guinean part of the site.

The granting of the concession was announced in 1992 and included portions of the WH site.
