The small scale miners association of Zambia is calling for the setting up of inspection mechanisms under the ministry of mines and minerals aimed at identifying sites countrywide that produce gold which is not being accounted for.
Association president, Kunda Chani notes that Zambia has a lot of gold sites where gold is being produced but is not being accounted for.
Chani explained that so far, the country is on the right trajectory in terms of gold production.
He added that putting in place an inspection mechanism will enable the zambia consolidated copper mine investment holding –ZCCM-IH- to account for every gold being produced in the country for the benefit of Zambians. -PHOENIX NEWS
