Prospectors search for gold at a gold mine near the village of Gamina in western Ivory CoastBy Joe Bavier GAMINA, Ivory Coast (Reuters) - Nestled among the cocoa plantations of western Ivory Coast is a gold mine that does not feature on any official maps. The unlicensed mine is a key part of a lucrative business empire headed by the deputy commander of the West African nation's elite Republican Guard, United Nations investigators allege. He is one of the principal players in a network of senior officers – former rebel commanders who have integrated into the Ivorian army – that has seized control of mines that generate tens of millions of dollars a year, and that engages in illegal taxation, smuggling and racketeering, they say. Interviews with more than two dozen military insiders, diplomats, U.N. officials, local authorities, analysts and miners also reveal that the network of former rebels continues to maintain loyalist fighters under their exclusive control. Elections in October are expected to return President Alassane Ouattara for a second and final term.

President Alassane Ouattara has the backing of his main coalition partner, the Democratic Party of Ivory Coast (PDCI). His former rival Laurent Gbagbo, whose refusal to accept defeat in a 2010 election sparked a war that Ouattara won with the backing of a rebel force, now faces trial for crimes against humanity before the International Criminal Court. Gbagbo's old party, the Ivorian Popular Front (FPI), is deeply divided.
