dc.description.abstractThe country’s mining sector has been operating without an overarching policy leading to issues in the sector being addressed in an ad-hoc manner. This has led to the lack of predictability and certainty hence low investment in the mining sector. There is therefore need for policy framework to provide a clear guidance for sustainable mineral resources development. The policy will address gaps that have existed in the mining sector, form the basis for review of the outdated Mining Act of 1940 and align the industry’s strategic direction with African Mining Vision, Vision 2030 and Constitutional Provisions. In addition, the Policy will strengthen institutional framework and address governance and operational issues, environmental protection, equity, mineral value addition, post-mine closure activities, capacity building and mainstream artisanal and small-scale mining. The policy will promote the use of appropriate technology including Geo-spatial technology and airborne geophysical surveying in order to enhance information on the country's mineral potential and increase investment in the mining sector.en_US
