The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah, has indicated that quarry operators at the Anto-Aboso quarry site, where four people have been confirmed dead after an explosion, will face the full rigours of the law.
He disclosed this to journalists after inspecting the site.
The Minister said that the quarry operators, STA Addsams, who had taken over from the previous Omni Quarry operators, had not completed their licencing processes.
He noted that the company has not been granted permission to start operations.
He stressed that the company will face sanctions for what has happened.
Four people have so far been confirmed dead, with several sustaining serious injuries, after an explosive disaster that occurred Saturday night at the quarry site.
The site is operated by some Chinese at Anto-Aboso in the Shama District of the Western Region.
According to details, 22 people were at the site when the explosion occurred.
The four bodies retrieved included three Ghanaians and one foreigner.
Five injured people are currently receiving treatment at the hospital, while nine have been discharged.
Four people are, however, unaccounted for.
