The Minerals Commission of Ghana has dismissed claims of permit being issued for mining activities in the Mole National Park in the Savannah Region.
Some Civil Soceity Organizations (CSOs) has alleged that Mining Permits have been issued for mining in or near the Mole National Park in the Savannah Region.
But a rejoinder issued by the Minerals Commission and signed by its Acting CEO, Martin Ayisi, said “This allegation and/or assertion is not the case. No such Mining Permit has been issued for the this purpose.”
“The Commission as the repository of records of all Mineral Rights in Ghana, entreats the General Public particularly CSOs, who are partners and have been working closely with the Commission over the years, to seek clarifications from it before going public,” it added.
