OUAGADOUGOU (Reuters) - Burkina Faso's transitional government will review mining contracts agreed under former President Blaise Compaore, whose 27-year rule was ended by a popular uprising last month, new mines minister Colonel Boubacar Ba said on Wednesday. Ba, a member of a cabinet appointed on Sunday, told Reuters in an interview that the gold-producing nation will also push forward with plans to revise its mining code in order to make Burkina Faso more attractive to miners.
