Henrietta Rushwaya said: “From the periods 2016-2018, the artisanal and small-scale mining sub-sector has been producing more than the primary producers, who are the large-scale miners. In 2018, the small-scale sector produced 22 tonnes of the 35 tonnes produced, making it 65%. This is highly applauded by government and is an indicator that the sector plays a pivotal role in the mainstream economy,” “Small-scale mining is characterised by both legal and illegal miners, with the high number of illegal miners being (found) in the small-scale artisanal (mining sector). However, the government has recognised that the sector is contributing more than 60% of the gold delivered and recorded at Fidelity (Printers and Refiners) and, as such, the sector has the potential to stimulate economic growth and increase in the gross domestic product” External link

Ibrahim Thiaw said: “As long as business does not see that investing on land and restoring land is a good business case, it will not happen,” “Governments will have to review some of the land tenure systems that they have.

Then they can harvest and they will leave the land restored rather than leaving it barren” External link
