Government Jobs in Ghana

The Minerals Commission is a government agency established under Article 269 of the 1992 Constitution and the Minerals Commission Act 1993 (Act 450). The Minerals Commission as the main promotional and regulatory body for the minerals sector in Ghana is responsible for �the regulation and management of the utilization of the mineral resources of Ghana and the coordination and implementation of policies relating to mining. It also ensures compliance with Ghana’s Mining and Mineral Laws and Regulation through effective monitoring.

In the unpredictable and constantly changing world of mining, where long term, risky mining investment is becoming more and more rare and therefore mining investors are demanding greater security and return on their investments, while Governments are seeking increased revenues from investors, local communities are demanding more “social responsibility” from mining investors, and we all desire to have growth and development as well as a natural environment that is as pleasant as possible.
