We Are Leading International Company In The World
Formed in 2010 to help small scale miners with amongst others, to write business plans and access funding for its members, train members in safe mining techniques., help legalize the rampant illegal mining activities.
Globally, developing countries are more endowed with natural resources as minerals as compared to developed countries. According to the South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (1994), mining is a process of extracting minerals underneath the surface using mechanical methods such as rock blasting. Artificial versions of minerals, including emeralds, sapphires, diamonds, gold, and other valuable gemstones, are regularly produced in industrial and research facilities and are often nearly identical to their natural counterparts. To understand the term ‘rock blasting’ the work of Langefors and Kihlstrom (1963:18) is used. They explain that rock blasting is the process of using explosives underground to create holes in rocks containing ore. Ore is the accumulation of minerals concentrated underground which are suitable for economic exploitation (Wills, 1997:4; Moon, Whateley & Evans, 2006:3).
We are focused on maintaining a high level of gold, copper, cobalt and emerald production by extending the life of existing mining assets and continued discovery and acquisition of new mineral reserve, we also facilitate the empowerment of artisanal and small-scale miners, the organization and the adoption of good practices, promoting favorable environments for the inclusion of artisanal and small-scale miners in the formal economy. We create voluntary standard systems for production and trade and support the creation of responsible supply chains.
There is a pressing need to enhance the quality of life for miners working outside of the formal economic system while enhancing ASM’s potential to bring benefits to affected communities.
