in artisanal and small-scale mining As of 2013, an estimated 20 to 30 million people engaged in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) globally in many countries, women make up between 10 to 50 percent of small-scale miners. (Eftimie et al., 2012, Hinton et al 2003.) But while women tend to have higher participation rates in ASM than
However, artisanal small-scale mining is associated with a number of negative impacts including an influx of workers in mining communities and conflict with existing miners, communicable diseases, environmental degradation, abandoned pits and shafts, as well as school dropouts. (Communities and small- scale mining report,(CASM), 2009).

Though the enactment of the Small-Scale Gold Mining Law, PNDC L 218, legalized the operations of Small Scale Mining (SSM) in Ghana. It is still difficult to differentiate between the activities of small-scale miners and illegal miners. The term galamsey is interchangeably used to refer to both small-scale mining and illegal mining.
Mining accidents and fatalities among the Artisanal and Small-scale miners (ASMs) occur in the process of mining metals, minerals, and energy materials (i.e., not construction materials), as shown in Table 1.Thousands of miners die from these mining accidents each year, especially in coal and hard rock mining .Although surface mining is usually less hazardous than
Small-scale mining also includes all lower segments of mining (both non-mechanised and mechanised) that are not conventional industrial mining operations (Schipper, de Haan, van Dorp, 2015). It is difficult to make estimates on the number of children working in mines due to a lack of clear data on the topic and the lack of uniformed ...
