Ghana is divided into 10 administrative regions, sub-divided into 275 districts.

Geologically, Ghana is underlain by the West African Craton, a Precambrian basement rock, which is one of the four cratons that make up the African continent. These cratons came together during the Proterozoic 2.1–2.0 giga-annum (Ga) Eburnean Orogeny. The southwestern region of the West African Craton, often referred to as the Leo-Man Shield, is composed of Archean rocks which are 3.0 to 2.5 Ga old. The eastern portion is dominated by Birimian rocks of Proterozoic age which were deposited just before and deformed during the Eburnean Orogeny, folded, intruded by granites, and metamorphosed to greenschist facies (Leube et al., 1990). The Proterozoic Birimian sequence of metasediments and metavolcanics is found throughout Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, and Liberia. The Birimian rocks contain many mineral deposits including primary and alluvial gold, as well as alluvial diamonds. (From Chirico et al., 2010.)
Lithium occurrences:
Ghana might become the world’s next hot spot for lithium, after large quantities of the element and other base metals have been identified in the Ashanti and Central regions.
While it’s too early to confirm the presence of commercial quantities, Ghana officials hope this discovery will capture the attention of Tesla and other electric car manufacturers that use lithium-ion batteries, such as Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., General Motors Co., and Ford.
While local news reported that lithium is a new discovery in the Volta region, Isaac Abraham, acting head of communications for the Ghana Minerals Commission, told Bloomberg Environment March 20-2018 that investigations still need to be done there. Only the Ashanti and Central regions of Ghana that have confirmed the occurrence of lithium, he said.
IronRidge Resources Ltd. last year said it identified “multiple, significant outcroppings of lithium in Ghana.” Its mining operations now map and sample the region. The Australian company, through a joint venture with Ghanaian companies Obotan Minerals Ltd. and Merlink Resources Ltd., now holds the rights to acquire historic Egyasimanku Hill, which surveys indicate has a potential deposit of 1.48 million tons.The company recently expanded its lithium interests in Ghana, including an agreement with Ghanaian company Joy Transporters that provides IronRidge with exclusive rights to an exploration license in the Central Region town of Saltpond and lithium project in Cape Coast. IronRidge also has exclusive rights to a prospective lithium license portfolio covering 1,177 square kilometers (454 square miles) in neighboring Cote d’Ivoire.
