Abstract:This study focuses on the issue of women's access to mining resources in the drc in light of all kinds of inequalities that they suffer, whether they work in the companies that deal with them or in artisanal mining. this observation of the treatment of women, knowing by nature that the same conditions cannot be imposed on them as on men, has led the author to question the position of the mining code with respect to the condition of women in relation to access to mining resources. based on an analysis of the provisions of the mining code and the mining regulations relating to eligibility conditions, access to mining resources is recognized for all individuals and legal entities of legal age, provided they comply with the formalities required by the law and the regulations in this area. this recognition does not make a distinction based on gender, with the exception of the exclusion of pregnant women. this is understandable, since it is considered to protect her and her child from the toxic effects of exploitation. nevertheless, the silence of the legislator on the status of women is the basis of many discriminations. it is precisely for this reason that the author pleads for the revision of the mining code and regulations by inserting provisions specifically devoted to women. this would lead to a specific mining legislation and the promotion of female leadership in this sector.
