Resolute Mining MD John Welborn agrees with Defence Minister Linda Reynolds that there are increased terrorism risks for Australian mining companies operating in West Africa. Reynolds was while speaking at the Africa Downunder mining conference in Perth. Resolute has mines in Mali, Senegal and Ghana, and Wellborn says the terrorism risk is getting worse, particularly in Mali where its main operations are located. Wellborn also contends that China is "stealing the march" on the US and Australia when it comes to investing in Africa.

Shares in Australian-listed Gryphon Minerals finished 22.2 per cent higher at $A0.165 on 20 June 2016, in response to a takover bid from Teranga Gold. Both companies have gold projects in West Africa, and Scott Williamson of Hartleys anticipates further consolidation among gold players with a presence in the region. Duncan Hughes of Somers & Partners expects North American miners in particular to target West Africa-focused Australian gold producers.

Western Australian microbiologist Tim Inglis has urged health authorities to take immediate action to combat the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. He says developed countries such as Australia will be at a much greater risk from the virus in six months’ time, as it is likely to mutate and spread beyond African countries. Professor Inglis says Australian medical teams and mobile molecular laboratories should be sent to Africa as soon as possible
