The Compound Economic Loss

The real compound loss is not limited to the mine claim owner but extends to both the local and macro economy of the country. Artisanal and Small Scale Miners are entrepreneurial in nature, production records are mostly not maintained resulting in under reporting and a consequential loss in national income tax revenues. It also does not facilitate bankability and investor attractiveness, stifling the growth of the mine and limiting local economic progress.

....In short everyone loses....
