The Problems of Artisanal Gold Mining in Manica Province

The artisanal and small scale mining is a generic term that means something different to different people, countries and organizations. In an African perspective, artisanal and small scale mining was defined by Dreschler (2001) as mining operations carried out by individuals organized into groups (four to eight individuals) or cooperatives of ten or more individuals, which are entirely financed by limited resources and undertaken full-time, using simple techniques and traditional instruments with low level of mechanization. The main aim of this booklet is to share with the public the results of a scientific research in the area of artisanal mining carried out in the last 20 years in Manica Province in central Mozambique.
