Tarkwa Banso Project
In 2012, the company’s long-term mining plan stipulated the need to open the Pit C-North. The company had to resettle a portion of the Tarkwa Banso Community that falls within the 500m buffer zone to the Pit C-North, as specified by Environmental Protection Agency Regulations.
The memorandum of understanding was therefore signed between the community and the company to start the process of relocation. Subsequently, the formation of the Resettlement Action Plan (RAP), Resettlement monitoring committee (RMC), and public hearing were done to ensure strict adherence to the resettlement regulations.
The Tarkwa Banso projects include the construction of 308 houses, two schools, a community center, market, churches and football park, with local involvement.
