Gold mining began only in 1993. Reserves of minerals can be shown only for 2 years due to confidentiality issues mentioned earlier. The table shows considerable fluctuation of annual extraction. There are no confidentiality constraints on information about fisheries, so the entire account can be shown for each of the three major fisheries, including opening and closing stocks, annual catch and other volume changes.

No data were available for communal land outside conservancies, but it is known that wildlife on this land is extremely scarce. The physical accounts were then valued in order to produce monetary asset accounts, so that in future, changes in the capital value of wildlife stocks can be measured. The current annual use of the wildlife asset base is detailed in flow accounts; the latter present the volumes and monetary values (economic characteristics) of this use.
