The Mineral Resources Authority will stage its 4th annual alluvial mining convention and trade show on August 14-15 at the Lae International Hotel.
Participants, presenters and attendees will include various stakeholders including gold exporters, miners and service providers.
Alluvial miners number more than 100,000 collectively contributing K300 million to the national economy in 2017.
This is an important sector of the economy that will rightly be given the attention it deserves by the government through MRA.
Under the theme ‘transitioning the alluvial mining sector for growth’, the two day program will cover programs and initiatives the MRA’s mines inspectorate has in terms of regulating safety in the alluvial mining sector.
Safety while conducting alluvial mining is an issue that the MRA has been addressing.
