This book illustrates the power relationship among the major stakeholders in the gold extraction industry in Ghana: the winners and the losers. It critically examines the effects of surface mining on the environment, small holder farmers and the vulnerable groups in Paboase and Akoti communities in the Sefwi Wiawso district. It also ascertains the roles of the relevant institutions and agencies in resource management as well as the contributions of mining to community based development. Its pragmatic findings indicate the pathway for sustainable development through the extraction industry: a practicable win/win situation.
