Introduction :for 35 per cent of Ghana’s total gold production in 2014, contributing almost 1.5 million ounces of gold. yet the majority of miners in Ghana operate informally, without the security of a licence. Formalising Ghana’s ASM sector is therefore a significant, timely and

2. Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in Ghana ASM has been a traditional and indigenous activity for centuries, dated back at least to the 15th century when mercury was first used in gold extraction (Dummett, 1998; Tsuma, 2010: 10), commonly using rudimentary means of extraction, and an activity that by law can only be undertaken by Ghanaian

Ghana has twenty-three large scale mining companies and over three-hundred registered small-scale mining groups and ninety mine support service companies. Gold trading in Ghana began from ancient history in the Trans-Saharan gold trade and the country was once known as Gold Coast.

A Contextual Review of the Ghanaian Small-Scale

Naturally, it is the favourable geological setting that enables widespread small-scale gold mining to occur in Ghana. The country is situated mostly within the West African Craton, which stabilized during the early Proterozoic Period some two billion years ago [2]. In a

Long before European colonists set foot in the area in the 1400s, Ghanaians looked for gold with pickaxes, shovels, and pans. They washed or “panned” for gold along river banks or dug holes on the surface to find deposits of gold

By law, artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASM) in Ghana is ‘reserved for Ghanaians’ and has long been an indigenous livelihood activity using rudimentary1 methods. Any foreign presence has been limited to nationals from neighbouring West African countries. Yet from 2010 onwards, the arrival

District Assembly Report, 2002). Even though small-scale mining is legalised in Ghana, most small-scale miners have not registered with the Minerals Commission, thus are illegal (Awumbila and Tsikata, 2004). Illegal small-scale mining is swaying in the district, specifically Yale community (CHRAJ, 2006). About 17% percent of the

In Africa, Ghana is the second largest gold producer, contributing to about 5.7% of the country’s GDP. The mining sector in Ghana consists of both small-scale and large-scale mining, each of which has varying environmental impacts. This paper provides an exposition on the environmental impacts of mining activities in Ghana.

Mineral extraction is fundamentally driven by large scale mining operations. However, production of gold by small-scale miners has seen a considerable increase since a law to legalise small-scale mining was enacted in 1989. Ghana is thus well endowed with substantial mineral resources, the major ones being gold, diamonds, manganese and bauxite.

2 Abstract: The artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) gold sector is reviled in Ghana for its devastating effects on the inhabitants and ecosystem of the communities in which it operates. This paper argues that the problems that have bedeviled this sector are not preordained.

Gender and labour force inequality in small-scale gold

In Ghana, small-scale gold mining is considered as a very critical sector under the small scale gold mining law (PNDC) as it has the tendency of ensuring women empowerment. Small-scale gold mining is only one micro-industry; however, as Labonne (1996: 36) articulated: “(small-scale) mining may become a stepping stone
