The long tradition in the extractive sector has enabled Ghana to build an institutional framework and organizations to support the mining industry. The key organizations include the Ministry of Mines and Energy, the Minerals Commission, the Geological Survey Department, the Chamber of Mines, the Mines Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, Lands Commission, Land Valuation Board and the Forestry Commission. These organizations provide support to ensure optimal exploitation of the country’s natural resources .
Diamonds are mined from alluvial sources mainly from the Birim Diamond field at Akwatia and the Bonsa diamond field in the Eastern and Western regions respectively. Ghana Consolidated Diamonds Limited (GCD) undertakes large-scale diamond mining. However, this company has been on the divestiture list since 1993. Its share of the nation’s diamond output has been dwindling, currently accounting for less than half of the total annual output . Manganese, on the other hand, is mined at Nsuta, Western region, by Ghana Manganese Company Limited (GMC), while bauxite is mined at Awaso by Ghana Bauxite Company Limited (GBC). gives the breakdown of major minerals production in Ghana for the period 2000-2011.

Currently, there are about seventeen (17) large-scale mining companies and three hundred (300) registered small-scale mining groups involved in mining exploration in Ghana. The key players in the large-scale sector include AngloGold Ashanti Ltd, Goldfields Ghana Ltd., Golden Star Resources Ltd., Newmont Mining Corporation, Red Back Mining, Adamus Resources Ltd, Alcoa Inc., Alcan Aluminum Ltd, Ghana National Manganese Corporation, and the Ghana Consolidated Diamonds Ltd [, ]. The Obuasi mine of Ashanti Goldfields Corporation (AGC), which started in 1890, is by far the largest and oldest operation in the country. It accounts for more than 50% of Ghana’s total annual gold production. Other mines operated by the company in Ghana through its expansion programme include the Bibiani, Anyanfuri and Iduapriem mines .
Ghana has the potential to produce a variety of minerals including limestone, manganese, silica sand, kaolin, mica, stone, feldspar, quartz, chrome, salt, among others . However, the main minerals produced by large-scale companies are gold, diamond, bauxite and manganese; while industrial minerals such as kaolin, limestone and silica sand are mainly produced by small-scale operators. Silver is produced as a by-product from gold mines, while aluminium is produced from imported alumna. There is also growing potential for commercial gas and oil exploitation, with announcements of significant discoveries of off-shore oil in June 2007, which commercial exploitation started in 2010. Gold, however, is by far the most important mineral currently being exploited in Ghana. It contributes more than 90% of the total value of minerals in the country and has attracted the largest number of large and small-scale operators [, , ]. gives the breakdown of minerals revenue by major mineral types in millions of US Dollars.

My area of concentration within Hebrew Bible is in Religion, Conflict, and Peacebuilding. I earned a BA in Philosophy and Religion from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa, an MA in Jewish Studies from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, and an MA in the Bible and Ancient Near East from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I am interested in apocalypticism and religious violence as general phenomena, and my research is interdisciplinary, using social scientific methods to study Jewish apocalyptic literature as ancient expressions of religious violence. As a Wexner Graduate Fellow, I am also interested in Jewish professional leadership and the relationship between academic and religious communities.
