Small-scale gold mining in Africa: An updated estimate of gold production and mercury emissions

Hello GOXI community,

The Artisanal and Small-scale Gold Mining Sector in Africa has grown steadily over the past decade, despite rises and falls in the international gold value. I wrote and shared this short (4pg) briefing note at the recent Conference of the Parties meeting (COP2) to the Minamata Convention..., in Geneva.  I hope the report is of interest here, to the GOXI community, and perhaps stimulates some conversation. Publication is in press [in the mean time please cite this report as Pact, 2018. "ASGM on the African Continent"]. The Publication will include Pact's fully cited list of each country's gold production estimates. I'll be happy to answer any questions.
