The Community mining scheme introduced by government is aimed at creating thousands of jobs for beneficiary communities among others.
In 2019, the small scale mining sub-sector contributed 36% of the total gold produced in Ghana. The sector Minister, Hon. Kweku Asomah-Cheremeh stated this when he launched the Community Mining scheme at a brief ceremony in Tinga of the Bole District in the Savannah Region.
The Minister encouraged all stakeholders to make the scheme work effectively for the benefit of the community and the country at large.
