Geographic term:Ghana
Subject:mining policy
Abstract:Under Ghanaian law, a person who wishes to search for a mineral or mine it, requires a permit from the State. There are three types of permits provided for under the basic regime of rights established by the Minerals and Mining Law 1986, namely a reconnaissance licence, a prospecting licence and a mining lease. This paper examines the variety of protections provided by law to the grantee of a mineral right in Ghana against unilateral disruption, variation, or abrogation of the right, or of expectations generated by it, by or under the authority of representatives of the State.
