In Mali, Pact is working to make artisanal and small-scale mining safer and more productive, primarily by reducing mercury use in gold mining. We are also strengthening supply chains in Mali's small-scale gold mining sector. We work with miners, investors and gold traders interested in adopting mercry-free business models, mostly in Keneiba Cercle in Western Mali.
