Small-scale mining in Ghana: The government and the

There are two legally distinct types of small-scale gold minesin Ghana. Since there is a formalized process for mining gold onthe small-scale, there are legally recognized small-scale mines.Small-scale mining permits can be acquired for a parcel of land byGhanaian citizens who are over 18 years old (Ghana Government1989a). Although the process is available, roughly 85% of Ghana’ssmall-scale mines do not register for these permits (Hilson andPotter, 2003). By local convention, registered ‘‘legal’’ mines arecommonly referred to as ‘‘small-scale mines’’ and the unregis-tered are called ‘‘galamsey’’ mines. However the different termsand legal distinction suggest a dichotomy of activities where nosuch dichotomy exists.

The Need to Regularise Activities of Illegal Small-Scale

2013-12-24  Southwest Ghana is a major gold producing region. The current high gold price has attracted hundreds of unemployed youth to undertake small-scale mining (SSM). Most of these miners operate illegally even though the SSM law (PNDCL) 218 of 1989 and Act 703 of 2006 define the procedures required for their op-eration. Some miners have brought their activities to a segment of the western highway that links southwest to central Ghana with serious environmental consequences envisaged. This paper argues that the laws that regulate SSM do not consider the fundamental set-up and concerns of the small-scale miner,
