A mobile app – Galamstop, collaborating with water resources on water assessment, and strengthening capacity of stakeholders to monitor mining activities are some of the solutions spelt out in the road map on the lifting of the ban on small scale mining.

Failure to go by these, means that the ban would be extended again beyond the December 2018 set date.

Announcing this at a meeting with journalists in Accra on Thursday, the Chairman of the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining, Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng, who is also Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, admitted that the latest decision will be met with mixed reactions by the Ghanaian populace.

“We can imagine that this decision to lift the ban will elicit varied responses from Ghanaians,” he surmised.
