Ghana Mining

With prices on stronger ground in global markets, mining companies are starting to display renewed interest in gold projects. In Ghana this precious metal represents more than 80% of mining activities, and an uptick in gold prices has led to a flurry of activity, with companies signing agreements, initiating production and seeking land for exploration. While a raft of fiscal changes aimed at increasing mining tax revenue have been introduced in recent years, the government has also sought to address sector challenges and ensure attractive investment conditions while promoting the development of sustainable mining. The implementation of the Minerals and Mining Policy will be key to strengthening the sector’s role in the economy.
