Closed Area Committee revived following slide in gold receipts
Miners who have been unable to access lands to mine gold are being urged to inform the Closed Area Committee which has been reconstituted in the wake of a drastic drop in gold declarations.
In an ad in the Sunday Stabroek, the Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association (GGDMA) informed that the Closed Area Committee has been reconstituted and the first meeting for the year is scheduled for Friday. “The Association advises that miners who have matters outstanding to write the Chairman of the Committee, Mr. Clinton Williams, who also is the Chairman of GGMC Board of Directors, to ensure that there is closure to the outstanding issues,” the GGDMA said.
In this regard, the matters would cover previous approvals that have not been processed to date by the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), recommendations that have not yet been formally approved and applications received that have not been dealt with by the Closed Area Commit-tee, the GGDMA said.
