Our interest has been drawn to an short article initially posted on 31st May well 2020 on Myjoyonline.com attributing its source to the Ghana News Company and commonly circulated on other media platforms across the country relating to the earlier mentioned matter.
We unequivocally condition that the statements attributed to Kwasi Bonzoh (DCE for Ellembelle) are fake and ought to be dismissed with out benefit. Our mining functions in the Nkroful spot have been carried out in compliance with all mining and environmental regulations. The assertions of the DCE in the report are dishonest, built without the need of perception in its truth of the matter and calculated to damage the popularity of our Corporation.
Any assertion that the not long ago constructed bridge caused the current floods, ignores the irrefutable actuality that the bridge was built in session with the local community stakeholders, engineers and in accordance with all the requisite permits and declared structurally compliant when commissioned.
A partial resettlement challenge was finished by the Organization in session with the Ellembelle District Assembly for the Undertaking Influenced People (PAPs) of Nkroful in August 2018, about 200m southwest of the outdated neighborhood owing to the enhancement of a mining pit in the vicinity of the group. Throughout the construction phase, the Main and Elders of Nkroful manufactured a ask for for the Corporation to deal with two damaged culverts, incorporate a a few-mobile culvert to a different existing culvert and dredge the Subile Stream to join the Bona and Broma Streams. The Bona and Broma Streams had been dredged by the Company to carry the increased volumes of water in the course of the peak of the rainy year.
It is noteworthy that the Company accommodated the request for fix and development of more culverts, even although this was not section of the first Nkroful Partial Resettlement Venture, a gesture which was tremendously appreciated by the neighborhood and proved significant in addressing the perennial flooding problem in and about the group.
We maintain that the DCE’s opinions were calculated to divert interest from the serious challenge of illegal alluvial mining in the community. In 2019, the renovated and new culverts (bridge) contained the floods and there were being no problems by any means from the individuals of Nkroful. The recent flooding incident transpired upstream of the Subile Stream the place unlawful alluvial mining has been having position and the drinking water study course was indisputably disturbed and blocked, protecting against the purely natural no cost-flow of the water downstream.
Adamus Resource Minimal can take the accusation in the reportage as deceptive and spurious and is vindicated by its ongoing compliance with environmental and safety precautions. The Organization continues to be committed to endeavor its operations in an environmentally compliant method and supporting the improvement of the local community in its operational area.
