Some small scale miners in Kumasi have issued a three-day ultimatum for government to come clear on whether it was fighting illegal mining or legal mining.
The group issued the ultimatum at a press conference held in Kumasi today [Thursday].
“We have given the President three days to allow us work otherwise all die be die.”
Frank Osei leader of group addressing the press said, small scale mining is a registered business under Ghana law and that if government does not come clear, they will hit the streets after three days.
“We are not illegal miners. We have licence that’s why we don’t want the government to box us together with illegal miners.”
“We are ready to die than to live and not work” Osei added.
