We generate as Main and great people of the Gbane Conventional
Spot to categorical our concerns about some unhealthy developments in the mining
community and respectfully proffer some measures to be adopted to treatment the

It is evident stating that the Gbane group has of late
played host to tons of mining traders-large and tiny, area and overseas. The
agglomeration of these varied industry players has significantly affected the
hitherto harmonious and natural romance amongst our very good people. Just lately,
the introduction of a overseas big scale mining business-Cassius Mining Restricted
(Cassius), brought with it, a cascade of inter-business disputes, as nicely as
hostilities amongst compact scale miners and common authorities.

No quicker than the claimed Cassius mining corporation arrived in
the group than there were being collection of mining concession litigations,
sponsored fragmentations of modest scale miners entrance and utter disregard for
neighborhood and common authorities. No standard authority has been
recognised as a person capable of amicably resolving most of their self-inflicted
troubles. As a issue of problem and to douse the expanding stress in the
community, we have taken it on ourselves to assess the functions of that
and have appear to the pursuing desire/problems:

1.           The
licence area of the Cassius organization came as well shut to an presently current
operational area belonging to the Yenyeya and Pabortaaba Mining Groups who are
taking pleasure in Mine Support Service from the Shaanxi Mining () Limited, who
equally have potentials of increasing their functions to big scale. It is
noticeable that the Cassius licence gave delivery to potential cases of overlaps each
surface area and underground. This is what has been the beef concerning the two mining
‘giants’ in our group. We take into consideration our petition timely given that we are
reliably educated that the Prospecting licence of Cassius has expired because
December 2018. It is our placement that the licence really should not be renewed
any longer to stay clear of what has frequented our neighborhood in the past 3 decades. It is
the larger sized desire of bulk of indigenes that the mentioned licence be revoked
outright for cogent good reasons subsequently mentioned in this petition.

2.           Publications
about the Administrators and Shareholders of Cassius have produced startling revelations
about their feasible criminal backgrounds. For each documentations out there to us,
some of the Directors and Shareholders, who came into Ghana and promoted the
corporation ended up convicted of criminal activities together with possession of narcotics
and market rigging and other offences these as experienced negligence. For the
avoidance of question, we refer    you to
the Daily Tutorial publication of Tuesday, February 26, 2019, page 6 dubbed
‘Mafia’ Team Invades Gbane Mining Area’ as perfectly as on line publications-,
and so on.  We are minded by the
interpretation of Portion 86 (1) of the Companies ACT 1963 (ACT 179), now
revised as the Organizations Act 2019-Sections 172 and 177- which proscribes them
to boost and take care of a company in the region. We are further conscious a petition
has been sent to the Inspector Standard of Law enforcement and the Director Common-CID
by a civil society organisation referred to as Northern Patriots in Investigation and
Advocacy (NORPRA) for further investigations into these alleged backgrounds. It
will not be out of area to respectfully urge your outfit to synchronise your
pursuits with the investigations and the final result of exact to inform you greater
on these individuals who constitute the homeowners of that company.

3.           Our
classic area has regarded no peace at any time since the organization entered to carry out
its exploration. The exploration was next point that the
enterprise experienced no functioning permit right before embarking on its drilling routines and
was subsequently issued a Prevent Work Get by the Minerals Commission on 25th
August 2017 and reminded in one more on 2nd January, 2018. On its unlawful
assumption of exploration, it begun sponsoring litigious groups to foment
difficulty in opposition to other rivals, as very well as standard rulers. Disparaging
comments have been released in opposition to some regular rulers and other mining
enterprises in our community all in hostile tries to deride their integrities
and oust competitors.

The harmonious and organic and natural solidarity that existed before
their arrival has extinguished. At the moment, brothers are at war from
their brothers with a whole lot of cases in courtroom for settlement. These are methods
that will further more soil the hitherto consanguinity that served as the foundation
of unity and growth.

4.           The organization a short while ago packed out of its camp unannounced next its failure to get an functioning allow. Its woes have been deepened by simple fact that the Prospecting Licence has expired. Gbane is effectively known for its blessing with the gold metallic and has grow to be a incredibly hot area for traders in that sector. We are of the strongest conviction that the space they occupied with their Prospecting Licence can be better and economically mined if granted to effectively placed, real, placid buyers. This sort of rapid developing expense will renovate our rural financial system by career generation and social interventions.

Beneath the circumstance, the company has proven it is seriously
incapacitated and should really not be permitted to derail the fortunes of our group.
We benefit investment decision but these kinds of ought to occur with peace, advancement and mutual
coexistence which we are conspicuously missing in the Cassius Mining Confined
corporation. We are ready to acknowledge and do the job with people you deem in good shape for intent
other than this business and hope to have a favourable response from you.

Remember to accept the assurances of our highest thing to consider.

Oxfam told a big, fat lie about Perseus Mining!

Oxfam told a big, fat lie about Perseus Mining!

Oxfam told a big, fat lie about Perseus Mining!

Oxfam told a big, fat lie about Perseus Mining!

Some several days back, I read through with disgust an Oxfam write-up published on 28th July, 2019 on their web page. Titled Buried Treasure- Aussie corporations behaving terribly in West Africa, the post only sought to bury the fact, smearing Perseus Mining (Ghana) Ltd. with untold lies and unfounded points [Read article here;]. I was awed by the depth of falsehood in the poorly-researched piece by no other brand but Oxfam.

There is a myriad of fears that Oxfam in the higher than piece. As a Ghanaian marketplace participant, I can only conclude that they are either uninformed or just becoming mischievous. 1st of all, no mining corporation any where in the globe normally takes around what the government need to do for its folks. It is NOT the responsibility of a mining firm to make educational facilities, hospitals and marketplaces. It is NOT the duty of Perseus Mining (Ghana) Ltd. to fulfill the infrastructural requirements of Ghanaians within just its jurisdiction. It is the obligation of the government!

Mining corporations pay back substantial amounts of taxes and royalties to the state. They only aid infrastructural assignments outside their core obligations through their have faith in cash or company social duty things to do. These mining corporations can only just take whole duty of this sort of developmental tasks when the federal government minimizes the massive taxes hanging all around their necks.

The Ghanaian federal government gains a chunk of its profits from mining things to do, thus, will by no means let Oxfam’s allegations see the mild of working day. The government will not sit aloof for millions of dollars to be annually lifted to Australia as purported by Oxfam. Information stated in the stated write-up are not genuine. Obviously, it is a ploy to tarnish Perseus’ mining routines in the region, specifically the Edikan mines at Ayanfuri.

For the records, Perseus Mining (Ghana) Ltd. is however to recover $150 million of funds it has invested in exploration above the very last couple a long time. As a firm, it is also budgeting to commence having to pay earnings tax this yr as directed by the laws of Ghana. The company has given that its inception complied with payment of corporate money tax based on tax legislation. If without a doubt Australian mining corporations are behaving badly in West African countries, gamers like us can boldly testify Perseus Mines at Ayanfuri is not a single of these types of. Ghana has just one of the most stringent mining regulations in Africa. Mining companies dare not flout such rules for concern of revocation of their license by authorities.

Oxfam’s costs leveled in opposition to Perseus Mining (Ghana) Ltd. are utterly baseless. For them to go this kind of a length to drag Perseus mining functions at Ayanfuri in the mud, it tells of the mischief they may be up to. This is a clarion contact for all stakeholders to continue to be attentive and established the data straight.

This onslaught on the graphic of Perseus even further stains the image of regulators like Minerals Commission, Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, Ghana Earnings Authority as well as Ghana Chamber of Mines. It tags them as incompetent institutions. Oxfam should have, at the very least, contacted these regulators (if not even Perseus Mining) and the nearby authorities to verify their statements in advance of publishing.

Mining firms often get tax incentives to motivate procedure of their mines simply because these mines deliver work right or indirectly to a significant number of the indigenes. They also assist building of universities, hospitals, roadways and infrastructural for the communities in which they function. I have always been of the watch that authorities really should waive more taxes for the mining firms so as to allow for them to thoroughly partake in the infrastructural improvement within this sort of communities for their advancement and progress.

Notify you what, Perseus Mining donates revenue to the Edikan Belief Fund just about every yr to aid development of the communities in its operational zone of which Oxfam never outlined. They similarly failed to exploration on Perseus mining building of college properties, two wellness centers, instructors and nurses’ quarters, ICT facilities, neighborhood facilities, h2o programs and provision of scholarships and bursaries to college students in second cycle and tertiary institutions in communities inside its jurisdiction.

Oxfam explained to a significant, body fat lie about Perseus Mining (Ghana) Ltd. Arrive once again, Oxfam!
