Artisanal and Small-Scale Gold Mining: mining the gaps


Language: English

The artisanal and small scale gold-mining economy provides an essential source of income for women, men and youth in Migori county. The sector is largely informal and faces extreme risks. The Migori County Artisanal Miners cooperative society (MICA) created the film to give artisanal gold miners a voice and to inform the process of formalization under the 2016 Mining Act for the benefit of miners and their families in Migori County. In 2018, MINA became the first formalized ASGM Cooperative in Kenya's mining history.
In collaboration with Canadian International Resources and Development Institute (CIRDI), and supported by UNESCO/SIDA project on the environmental impacts of mining activities in Africa
