|Overview : |
Small-scale mining is considered as one of the strategies to reduce poverty in Namibia. To date, many less advantaged people are engaged in small-scale mining activities in efforts to generate income. Small-scale mining in Namibia is concentrated mainly on semi-precious stones, such as tourmaline, smoky quartz, beryl, amethyst, prehnite, rock crystals and schorl.
Currently, there are small-scale miners operating in various mining hotspots in Erongo, Kunene and Karas Regions. However, it has been realized that the health of the small-scale miners is at risk. Against this background, the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) require services of a consultant or consultants to train the small-scale miners at Otjimbojo and Omapyu in Erongo Region on the implementation of the Environmental Management Plan developed for their mining areas as well as train them on the use of the Health and Safety guidelines.
