The Ministry of Mines and Steel Development (MMSD) says it will continue to ensure that all mineral title holders fulfill their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)to their host mining communities.
The Director, Mines and Environmental Compliance Department, MMSD, Dr Vivian Okono said this in an interview with the News Men.
Okono said it became imperative for the ministry to monitor and ensure mineral title holders fulfill their CSR due to the communities where they mined to avoid conflicts and complains from both parties.
She said recently, the ministry received complaints from some host mining communities on lack of implementation of Community Development Agreement (CDA) that mineral title holders signed with them.
The director said that the department would conduct sensitisation programme in the six geo political zone and active mining states to ensure mining companies comply with CDA and among other issues.
