As the new flagship of Oman’s mining and mineral processing industry, Minerals Development Oman (MDO) seeks to build on the nation’s rich and ancient mining heritage that goes back over 5,000 years.

What we do

MDO’s primary role is to attract reputable international mining and mineral development players, along with the requisite investment, technical wherewithal and talent, to drive the commercialisation of Oman’s prodigious mineral resources.
