Chamber of Mines proposes a fund to support small scale miners

 

The Ghana Chamber of Mines is proposing a fund by government to support small scale mining in the country.

 

 

This according to the chamber will be part of an action plan to help assist the activities of the miners since they find it difficult to get loans from banks in the country.

 

Chief Executive of Ghana Chamber of Mines, Dr. Tony Aubyn told Gold Business Report the fund will ease the burden of miners in accessing loans from banks.

 

He also said the proposal will be keenly supported by institutions that are responsible for the small scale mining sector of the country.
