A meeting is scheduled for Monday 5 March, 2018 at the Flagstaff by the Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining with the Ghana National Association of Small Scale Miners (GNASSM). The meeting, Skyy News have learnt, is to brief the leadership of the association on measures taken so far in sanitizing the small scale mining sector.
Secretary to the Inter-ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, Charles Bissue told Skyy News in an interview that the meeting will enable the committee to detail the association of progress and status of government’s intervention at eradicating the illegal mining activities and associated effects in the country.
“From Monday, we are meeting the national and regional hierarchy of the Ghana National Association of Small Scale Miners at the flagstaff house to brief them as to where we are, and then they would see the true picture of what is happening”
The General Secretary of the GNASSM Godwin Armah in a press briefing held in Kumasi last week issued a week ultimatum to government to lift the ban on small scale mining in the country to allow legitimate small scale mining organisations to resume operations.
Skyy News will be following up on this.
