The future of autonomous mining systems in Ghana; Are we prepared?

"We are championing an argument that compensation and resettlement of project-affected persons (PAPs) in its current form does not secure PAP's livelihoods. There is need for a paradigm shift in the manner in which compensation and resettlement…"

"The major hurdle mining companies face in Ghana is not only  the issue with artisanal miners - especially now that the government has placed a temporary ban on small scale mining activities across the country. Apart from the various sums and…"

"Agree with you Ron that companies are not always coming to chase away people who were doing artisanal mining prior to the arrival of companies. I only cited that an as example to illustrate my point. To take the discussion further, it is important…"

"Rom, your comments on Felix's article may be correct. On the other hand, communities usually tend to blame extractive companies for the problems they face as a result of the presence of these companies in their neighborhoods. For example, when…"
