Featuring highlights from the July 2019 launch event for the GEF GOLD (now called planetGOLD) project in Colombia, this video gives an overview of the project's objective to support 11 artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM) municipalities to reduce mercury use by 20 tonnes over the course of the 5-year project.
Defining the Road Ahead: Challenges and solutions for developing and implementing National Action Plan to reduce mercury use in Artisanal and Small Scale Gold Mining
UNEP, Africa Institute English
The report discusses the challenges and solution encountered by countries developing National Action Plan for artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM).
This infographic features a visual summary of the key facts and figures about ASGM. It provides answers to questions such as: Why is it hard to formalize the sector; Why is mercury used in ASGM; How does the Minamata Convention safeguard the ASGM sector? Key strategies through which the planetGOLD programme is transforming the sector are also presented.
Hear from participants in the launch event for the planetGOLD programme (formerly known as GEF GOLD), held on February 18-19, 2019 in London, about their views on the opportunities and potential impacts a cleaner, more responsible ASGM sector could make in mining communities around the world.
Pulling at golden webs: Combating criminal consortia in the African artisanal and small-scale gold mining and trade sector
Marcena Hunter English
This report seeks to unpack how criminal consortia manipulate ASGM and associated gold flows to secure illicit rents and capture the sector. The findings highlight the need for nuance, especially regarding the role of informal and traditional actors in the sector. Through a more holistic understanding of the challenge, policymakers will better be able to identify and combat criminal consortia in ASGM.

Artisanal Gold Communities as Prime COVID-19 Intervention Targets: Supply Chain Reform, Health In Gold Out
Shawn Blore, Marieke Kroll, Kevin Telmer English
In this paper, the AGC announces its three signal interventions for dealing with the crisis in ASGM communities brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic:
(i) Supply Chain Reform Project – a project to restart and reform artisanal gold supply chains;
(ii) Health In Gold Out – a project to deliver health assistance via this gold stakeholder network; and
(iii) Artisanal Gold Prices Database – a project to monitor these interventions via a worldwide database of artisanal gold prices.
