Greetings from the Chairperson of National Federation for Artisanal and Small Scale Mining

Welcome to the National Federation’s website.

Having organized into partnerships and cooperatives in accordance with the Regulations for
Artisanal and Small Scale Mining, the National Federation members respect the human rights,
pay their tax and social insurance premiums, follow occupational safety and health norms,
rehabilitate their mined areas according to the approved guidelines and hand over the
rehabilitated land to their local governments. As a result of their formalized activities, artisanal
and small scale miners are able to make actual contributions to local economies.

Since its inception, the National Federation has been successful, particularly in facilitation and organization of capacity building trainings and programmes for artisanal and small scale miners encouraging them to be organized under the legal framework, to engage and specialize in artisanal and small scale mining (ASM) in safe, responsible, and environmentally friendly ways, and to shift from ASM to other employment opportunities in the ultimate.

Moreover, the Federation members make actual contributions in employment opportunities and poverty reduction in local areas engaged in diverse micro businesses and sustained their businesses.

We are pleased to cooperate with governmental, non-governmental, and international organizations and their projects and programmes with regard to all the issues related to the formalized ASM as described above.
