Project Leaders: Ghana and Nigeria
It was agreed that the collaborating countries will prepare a framework to support the production of a Summary Document on the role of Geological Surveys in supporting Small-Scale Mining in Africa.
The framework is intended to act as a basis for collecting information for development of the Summary and when this tool has been finalised it will be supplied to the Secretariat for publishing on the OAGS website in order to allow all the member countries to access and populate it with the required data. This is also a natural area of focus for Geological Surveys since access to geological information will enable more effective and efficient development of the sector.
Work on this assignment is ongoing.
