No ban on small scale mining, go back to work – Mireku Duker tells legal miners

 

 

The Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, George Mireku Duker has dismissed fears of members of the Ghana National Association of Small-Scale miners (GNASSM) that government has banned small-scale mining.

He has, therefore, charged the members to immediately return to work and mine responsibly.

 

 

Speaking at a meeting with the Association today, Thursday, July 22, 2021, in Kumasi, the Deputy Minister reiterated President Nana Akufo-Addo’s love for mining adding that “mining supports Ghana’s economy hence, government has not and will not ban mining in the country.”

He said government expects the legal small-scale miners to engage in responsible and sustainable mining saying that “your mining activities should match your licences acquired.”

 

 

Government, however, Mr Duker said, would not condone irresponsible mining.
