The Ban has been lifted

We are pleased to inform you that the ban on small scale mining was officially lifted on Monday, 17th December 2018. Prof. Kwabena Frimpong Boateng the Minister for Environment, Science, Technology & Innovation made the announcement on Friday, December 14, 2018. Although this has been officially announced we anticipate the ban to completely roll out across Ghana by the end of January 2019.

He added that the ban which has lasted for almost two years was being lifted because an InterMinisterial Committee on Illegal Mining has successfully developed a comprehensive policy framework to regularise small-scale mining across the country.
