Apr 27, 2023 | 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

Partner session - Room CC16


Organised by: London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and Word Gold Council (WGC) This session will explore the experiences and perspectives of mining companies that have forged cooperative relationships with ASM miners and cooperatives, and discuss the challenges and benefits in building such relationships. The discussion will be informed by case studies from efforts to build multistakeholder coalitions between government, LSM companies and ASM actors. It will also discuss the examples of Cote d’Ivoire, where the mining code allows for co-existence between LSM and ASM miners, and recent government efforts in Colombia.
