Abosso Goldfields Limited to spend close to US$20m on reclamation activities

Thursday, 20 October 2022

Abosso Goldfields Limited (Damang Mine) held an Open House for community members and key stakeholders of the mine on its concurrent rehabilitation strategy, revegetation techniques and maintenance practices.

The mine will invest close to US$20 million to reclaim 1,472 hectares of disturbed land. So far, 506 hectares have been restored to lush vegetation and productive farmland.

“Our company’s policy on reclamation is concurrent rehabilitation. We rehabilitate our disturbed areas alongside ongoing mining operations and do not wait until mining activities stop completely,” said Charles Kofi Nti, the then Acting General Manager.

“We are committed to transforming the economic fortunes of our host communities through the development of agriculture and other socio-economic activities,” he added.

The community members and stakeholders were given a tour of the rehabilitated sites where rubber, coconut, cashew, cabbage and oil palm have been cultivated.

The Open House forum is organised regularly for host communities of the Damang mine and regulators to update them on the progress of the mine’s rehabilitation plans and to discuss their concerns and suggestions.
