Report summary

World class exploration success in a number of Sub Saharan countries has encouraged governments to toughen fiscal terms. However it is unclear if increasing government take is achieving the aim of maximising government revenues. Tougher terms increase the economic threshold of future discoveries and can discourage further exploration investment. But if fiscal change is managed correctly countries can avoid creating the boom and bust cycles in investment and revenue generation.
