As part of efforts to sanitise and streamline mining operations in Ghana, the Ministry of Transport has issued a directive to owners of all earthmoving equipment – excavators and bulldozers – to license and register them with the Driver and Vehicle and Licensing Authority (DVLA) before 31 March 2019 or face the law.

The move will allow the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Illegal Mining (IMCIM) to track all earthmoving equipment used for mining in the country.

In a statement, the Transport Ministry said: “A person who uses or keeps a motor vehicle or trailer not being an exempt motor vehicle on the road when particulars of the motor vehicle or trailers have not been entered in the register maintained by the licensing authority, in accordance with Section 39 of the Road Traffic Act, 2004, Act 683, commits an offence and is liable, on summary conviction, to a fine not exceeding 250 penalty units or to a term of imprisonment not exceeding 12 months or to both.”
