The Ministry of Mines and Steel Development says it has commenced Nationwide environmental monitoring to ensure mining title holders comply with mining laws and regulations.

Mr Sallim Salaam, the Director, Mines Environmental Compliance Department of the ministry told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.

Salaam said that the programme would be conducted in the six geo political zones of the nation.

He said that the states selected from the six political zones included Edo, Cross River, Oyo, Ebonyi, Nasarawa, Benue, kogi, Kaduna, Zamfara and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The director said that some teams from the department had visited six sites in Ogun and six others in Edo, adding that samples were taken from all the sites for analysis.

“We also visited lead and zinc mining sites in Ebonyi and a granite mining site in Calabar.”

He added that the programme, which started in October, would be completed by middle of December.

Salaam said the essence of the programme was to monitor mining title holders in those states to ensure that their mining activities did not pose environmental, social and health hazard to their host communities and workers.

” We want to ensure that they comply with all environmental requirements with regard to fulfilment of “Environmental Protection Rehabilitation Programme.

“The idea of this programme is to also ensure that all title holders reclaim all sites mined and to revert to the status-quo as required by the law,” he said.

Ministry of steel and mines development? undecided undecided

That's one of the bogus and irrelevant portfolios created by the Nigerian government to siphon Niger Delta "oyel" money by virtue of doing nothing but collecting huge money for running the ministry.

If you check that ministry, it is Buhari and Aisha family members that are working there with certificate from their koranic school

Y'all might think this is a new development, but it's a lie.

They have always checked on mining activities but what they end up doing is collect bribes.

Some will only call you to send money to their personal account so they won't bother coming to your site.

Rather late than never. It's a welcome development for our mining sector. After all, it shouldn't be just tapping our mineral resources but protecting lives and the environment.
Re: FG Begins Probe Of Mining Activities In Nigeria by Lenadiva(f): 11:06am On Nov 06
This is a welcomed development most especially now that they have increased the national minimum wage. NASARAWA IS BLESSED WITH TOO MUCH MINERAL RESOURCES.

mining title holders comply with mining laws and regulations- the present Federal Government has shown commitment to diversifying the nation's economy, unlike other previous government that never for once saw the need to check the mining sector as a revenue generating sector.
