2013-12-24  Ghana abounds in a number of minerals especially in the south-west of the country and the most developed and sought after mineral is gold. Gold mining has been asso-ciated with Ghana since time immemorial but documen-tation of this activity was captured by the Portuguese around the 1470’s. Traditional Small-Scale Mining (SSM) undertaken within weathered formations has therefore been going on well before this time.
