Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in EITI countries
Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) is largely an informal sector with limited available information on production, revenues, operations and even location of activities. Regulation of the sector is often inadequate and its real contribution to national economy is difficult to estimate. Estimates of employment numbers and production levels in the ASM sector vary but show that it plays a significant role, particularly in the development mineral sector.
The EITI encourages implementing countries to publish contracts and license agreements governing oil, gas and mining operations. To this end, the paper brings together findings from implementing countries on the contract transparency requirements of the EITI Standard as documented during Validation.
This document recaps some of the stakeholder views gathered during Validation on the benefits and challenges with contract disclosure.
