New report: Lessons learned on managing the interface between large-scale and artisanal and small-scale gold mining
The new in-depth study ‘Lessons Learned on managing the interface between the large-scale and artisanal and small-scale mining’ includes case studies from 25 mines, operated by 15 gold mining companies covering 18 countries.
This new report explores how large-scale gold mining (LSM) companies are working with governments, civil society, and responsible ASGM entities to improve development outcomes, address human rights challenges, and reduce environmental damage. The report concludes that a key to progress is for governments to formalise responsible ASGM entities, giving them legal status and reducing their vulnerability to predatory middlemen, corruption or organised crime. The report urges the case for greater co-operation and dialogue between stakeholders to address the negative impacts of ASGM.
