Mining Life Cycle Small Scale and Artisan
Mining Challenges in South America
  • Results of a Multi-stakeholder Workshop
  • Prepared by
  • Cristina Echavarria (IDRC)
  • Zoila Martinez (EKAMOLLE)

3
A 10 Year Vision for Transforming Artisan and
Small Scale Gold Mining into a Sustainable
Activity
  • Strategic Objective 1
  • In 10 years artisan and small scale mining is a
    formalised, organised and profitable activity,
    that uses efficient technologies and is socially
    and environmentally responsible
  • Strategic Objective 2
  • Artisan and small scale mining develops within a
    framework of governance, legality, participation
    and respect for cultural diversity

4
THE CHALLENGE OF SUSTAINABILITY
  • Recognition that it is a social reality
  • It needs to improve its performance recognizing
    its challenges, but also its potential for
    overcomming poverty and contributing to local
    development
  • That it needs to be managed, by the government,
    according to its diverse and complex nature
  • Within a framework of collaboration among
    different stakeholders, including the miners and
    their organizations

5
THE CHALLENGE OF SUSTAINABILITY
  • Public management must be based on accurate and
    updated information
  • ASM should be a part of national and local
    sustainable development strategies around the
    planning and use of natural resources
  • Legalisation is the starting point for
    formalisation

6
Main Priority Issues to be Addressed in the
Short Term
  • Strengthening of the organizational capabilities
    of ASM
  • Characterization of the sector and generation of
    information about ASM including update and
    dissemination of the social and economic
    importance of ASM among decision makers in
    government, industry and local communities
  • Development of appropriate legal frameworks to
    facilitate a transition to formalization of the
    sub sector
  • Facilitate access of ASM miners to useful
    information of diverse nature, through various
    media

7
Main Priority Issues to be Addressed in the
Short Term
  • Technical support and training
  • Profitability
  • Occupational and community health
  • Safety and incidence of accidents
  • Management of business and financial aspects
  • Environmental and technical performance
  • Access to appropriate technology and capacity to
    use it
  • Capacity to develop mine plans
  • Capacity to implement environmental management
    plans and improved mining processes
  • Policies and financial instruments to facilitate
    access to credit and to markets

8
Contribution to Local Development
  • Strengthen participatory and informed local
    planning in regions with ASM
  • Implement policies and practices directed at
    adding value
  • Link local universities, science and technology
    centres, and schools into efforts to improve ASM
    performance
  • Implement policies that promote the
    sustainability of mining clusters and the
    diversification of local economic activities

9
Generation and Use of Information Through Research
  • Social and environmental base line studies in
    areas of ASM
  • Evaluation of lessons learned and exchange of
    experiences in formalization, credit,
    organization, technologies and mine processes,
    marketing, environmental management plans and
    management of the activity by governments
  • To identify criteria and use indicators to track
    progress in different experiences of intervention
  • To track the potential positive contributions to
    local development and poverty reduction, and
    identify risks to human health and environment
  • To better understand the impact of boom and bust
    cycles, and prepare contigency plans
  • Identify areas of possible collaboration between
    large, medium and ASM is there room for
    mentoring?

10
NETWORKING
  • UNESCO-IDRC/MPRI program on ASM over next two
    years first step
  • Working group on ASM A South American network of
    researchers, miners organizations, NGOs,
    government agencies, international cooperation
    agencies
  • WELCOME EVERYBODY!!!
