BBOP Pilot Project Case Study. Akyem Gold Mining Project, Eastern Region, Ghana




Newmont Golden Ridge Limited (NGRL), a subsidiary of Newmont Mining Corporation (the Company), is proposing to develop gold reserves at the Akyem Project site in the Birim North District of the Eastern Region of Ghana, West Africa. The site is located approximately 3 kilometres west of the district capital New Abirem, 133 kilometres west of Koforidua the regional capital, and 180 kilometres northwest of Accra, the national capital. The proposed Project is currently in the planning stages. NGRL is a partner in the Business and Biodiversity Offset Programme (BBOP) which explores the concept of establishing BIODIVERSITY OFFSETS to compensate for significant residual, biodiversity impacts that can occur with development projects.
