The Minerals Commission is a government agency established under Article 269 of the 1992 Constitution and the Minerals Commission Act 1993 (Act 450). The Minerals Commission as the main promotional and regulatory body for the minerals sector in Ghana is responsible for the regulation and management of the utilization of the mineral resources of Ghana and the coordination and implementation of policies relating to mining. It also ensures compliance with Ghana's Mining and Mineral Laws and Regulation through effective monitoring.
The Commission would strive to make Ghana the leading destination of mining sector investment in Africa through creating a congenial atmosphere in which all stakeholders work as partners in a safe environment to achieve one common goal: sustainable development through mining.
The Commission's primary responsibility is to foster the efficient and effective regulation and management of the utilization of Ghana's mineral resources. This we will accomplish through the development of a solidly knowledge-based, self-led organization, which recognizes that mining investment would take place and be sustained only if it is under Win-Win circumstances.
