Ghana is one of the world’s top-10 gold producers and the second largest in Africa. A wave of investments in recent years has boosted production and improved cost efficiency in gold and manganese mining, while the government has acted firmly to improve industry regulation, tackle long-term issues such as illegal activity and environmental damage, and strengthen assaying capacity. Ghana boasts political stability and a strong institutional framework, and these factors are expected to continue to underpin investment in the mining sector in years to come. However, international players will be keen for some clarification with regard to plans to increase state equity stakes in key operating companies. This chapter contains an interview with Eric Asubonteng, President, Ghana Chamber of Mines; and Managing Director, AngloGold Ashanti (Ghana).
