Artisanal and Small Scale Mining

Published by Mag5
More than 13 million people in the South are directly engaged in small-scale
mining – many of whom are women and children – with another 80 to 100
million depending on it for some aspect of thei livelihood. These activities
are often both illegal and environmentally damaging, and dangerous for
workers and their communities. The illegality and lack of regulation often
mean that improving the sector is difficult and many of the potential benefits
are lost. This paper is an overview of the issues and challenges facing
artisanal and small-scale mining stakeholders.
