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.
