What we do

Mapping and Assessing the Environmental and Health Impacts of Abandoned Mines in Sub-Saharan African Countries


The project aims to reduce the adverse effects of abandoned mines on the ecosystem and promote a more environmentally and socially responsible mining industry.


1.       Understanding of how abandoned mines negatively affect ecosystems and health of the adjacent communities

2.       Identifying, through experimentation, the most appropriate rehabilitation technologies and remedial actions for sites contaminated by trace metals sites from mining

3.       Using science-based evidences to influence policies on issues of abandoned mines
