akufo-addo-696x464Mining industries so far have encountered many tragedies both this year and last year regarding how their works were put off for a longtime especially in Ashanti Region. But now, the President of Ghana have encouraged miners in Ashanti Region to be calm because Obuasi Mine is going to employ over two thousand people very soon. The president of Ghana, Akuffo Addo said this when he was re-opening the Anglogold Ashanti gold mine in Obuasi, which had been closed since 2014.

“In order to help Anglogold Ashanti secure the needed investment for this project, Government had to provide a number of fiscal incentives, and guarantee the stability of the project against changes in the legal environment, especially in the early years of the mine’s operations,” he said. “When Government and mining companies collaborate in an intelligent and sustainable manner, more can be done to transform mining communities. I have no doubt that Anglogold, under its current management, will be a constructive partner in this journey,” President Akufo-Addo added.

On the lifting of the ban on small-scale mining, he indicated that, with a considerable degree of success, Government has been able to streamline and regulate the small-scale mining sector.

“We are determined to ensure responsible mining, and I appeal to you, Nananom, to help Government in securing for future generations a landscape and vegetation on which they can also survive and thrive. I am happy to say that, today, people are fishing again in one of the famous rivers of our country, the Ankobra,” the President said.
