Using annual time series between 1996 and 2014, this study examines the impact of disaggregate solid minerals and government governance on poverty level in Nigeria. The results from the study show that coal, metaore, quarry and others reduce poverty level, while good governance relate positively to poverty level in Nigeria. The results were statistically significant. The study shows that investment on different types of solid minerals could reduce poverty level in Nigeria, while there is a need to improve good governance in Nigeria if poverty reduction is to be achieved.
