Artisanal Gold Mining in Africa

The Exchange Trust Impact Funding for Artisanal and Small Scale Mining is a high security and value generating activity. It gives you an opportunity to directly own Gold Certificates backed by 100g, 250g, 500g and 1000g fully tradable Gold ingots...


Our philosophy is to provide Impact Funding through your Gold Certificate purchases that would improve the local mining community in the form of job creation, education, food, regional taxation and health provision. Each Gold Certificate is fully backed by gold deposited in one of our Banks against a Bank certificate confirming the Safe Storage. Our Gold Certificates can be exchanged for Cash or Crypto Currency at the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) spot price. Alternatively subject to your country's regulatory requirements the actual Gold can be couriered to your destination of choice.

The business model overcomes the many problems experienced by Artisanal Mining, is economically viable and self sustaining. Our focus is the +-40 000 Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mines in Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Mozambique, Ghana, Uganda, Rwanda, Kenya, Nigeria and Zimbabwe. In each of these regions one or more support centres are being established. The approach, from a Responsible Private Sector perspective is to Support, showcase and develop Small Scale Artisanal mines with a structured package comprising of Technology, Access to Equipment, Access to Human Resources and Capital. 


It is estimated that some 30 Million people are involved in Artisanal mining world wide with approximately 18% of those operating in Africa. Another estimated 34 Million people in Africa alone relies on the income derived from Artisanal mining either directly or indirectly. It is a real economic alternative that can be viable if we as investors focus our effort on solving the problems associated with Artisanal mining. This opportunity, through legitimate and responsible gold sourcing within the ambit of the laws of each country, is not only about armed groups, child labor and corruption and is both economically viable, sustainable.

....It is arguably not only a Governmental responsibility but
also a Private Sector and Consumer Responsibility....

Due to many regulatory issues it is not always possible for citizens in many countries to own gold ingots or bullion directly. The Exchange Trust model has been designed to allow you to participate in this investment opportunity with 100% gold backed transactions. Please review the Exchange Trust Account details here.
