Minerals Commission stops Shaanxi mining operations


The Minerals Commission has directed Shaanxi Mining Ghana Limited to suspend its operations at the Gbane mine site with immediate effect.

The directive follows the death of some 16 small-scale miners (galamseyers) who died through suffocation while mining in some pits, following the detonation of explosives at the mine in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region.
