On September 22nd 1960, Mali became officially independent from France.. In the past, Mali was one of the richest countries, home to great emperors whose wealth came mainly from the region's position in the cross-Sahara trade routes between West Africa and the north. Timbuktu, located in the northern area of Mali was an important learning center with its famous university enrolling over 25000 scholars in the 11th century. Today, Mali is the third producer of gold on the African continent.
