So, the little sixty minutes are walking through the one-hour space of time. :-)

Every 60 seconds in Africa a minute passes.

Would an equivalent sentence be "Det finns sextio minuter på en timme."?

It’s grammatically correct, but slightly unidiomatic. We rather talk about time as ”going” as in ”tiden går fort” (time passes quickly).

"timme" is spelled "timma" in the sample sentence.
