There is potential for this to happen. It will, however, take alot of work, alot of research, alot of money. However, it seems like this would be something great to strive for in Africa.

There is growth in Africa, and it is impressive. I've thought about being part of it. I just don't know how.

I seen a tv show of Americans mining for gold in ghana.
You're probably better off just moving to Williston ND though.

I'm not talking about just gold. I would imagine construction being done in places like Angola. I would hope they might need GIS persons over there. I've thought about how much growth is taking place there, and how there could be new opportunities over in Africa. I've been told there is money to be made. I've also considered perhaps I could be part of Africa rising.

As for North Dakota, I know there is some money to be made there too. It is a question of getting investments. I'm just a recent college grad(as of July 2012) trying to find new opportunities wherever I can, and Atlanta isn't where it's at anymore. I'm more than happy to move. Trust me.
