MONROVIA, January 9 (LINA) –The Liberian government has established a national road map to formalize the Artisanal and Small- Scale Mining (ASM) sector.

The objective of the ASM, according to the 2014 annual report of the Ministry of Lands, Mines and Energy (LME), is to develop where the ministry will begin to visualize a more complete image of ASM throughout the country.

The guiding principle of the roadmap is evolving engagement ensuring there is flexibility at all stages to make adjustments to plans and processes as new information is discovered and confidence established with mining communities, the report stated.

Meanwhile, the report has noted that the ministry’s Department of Planning has organized a Vetting Committee with the goal of ensuring transparency and integrity by eliminating discretionary authority in the licensing process.

The report indicated that the vetting committee comprises 11 members, two representatives each from the Liberia Geological Survey, Bureau of Mines, Cadastre and the Assistant Minister for Mines.

Others are the Assistant Minister for Exploration; Assistant Minister for Planning; Deputy Minister for Planning and a representative from the Office of Precious Minerals (OPM), the report added.

It pointed out that the functions of the committee are to oversee the activities of sub-vetting committees, validating vetted applications from sub-vetting committees; recommending applications for approval or rejection and making appropriate recommendations to the Minister on standing issues within the mineral sector as deemed necessary.
