Promoting Mercury-Free Mining (Pro-MFM)

Country: Ghana
Funder: U.S. State Department

The Promoting Mercury-Free Mining project is a three-year effort implemented by Pact in partnership with Solidaridad, Minerals Commission Ghana, and the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation. The project aims to reduce the use of mercury in Ghana’s artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) sector through education, the introduction of better technology, strengthened equipment supply chains and demonstrating business incentives for mercury-free gold production.
