Présentation
Artisanal mining plays a significant role in the economy of Ethiopia. Environmental, health and social problems mostly arise in AM sector due to lack of awareness, and skill in best practices and traditional mining techniques. In order to mitigate those problems the Ministry of Mine (MoM) aims to provide technical and material support, encouraging AM to participate in optimal and environmentally safe exploration and exploitation of the mineral resources To mitigate the negative impact of this practice, under this project a test of the Borax method will be carried out and train some trainers among the AM’s.
