There are minimal mining activities in the province though minerals have been recorded to be in existence. Gemstones like emeralds and graphite appear to be abundantly in existence especially in Chama district and these are mainly mined at a small scale level.

On the other hand, Isoka district could be a new mining town in the next few years once exploration of phosphate and Rare Earth Elements (REE) at Nkombwa Hill swings into full-scale production. Phosphate is a major component in fertilizer production whilst Rare Earth Elements (REE) are used in components for mobile phones and television sets.
