Save Act Mine Project Fraud Hotline and Artisanal Miner Manual
Jun 30, 2016
A grant to Save Act Mine has just wrapped. With the PPA’s support, Save Act Mine operated a telephone hotline to receive reports of suspected illicit trafficking of tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold in North and South Kivu. Save Act Mine conducted investigations to verify claims and inform appropriate authorities. Save Act Mine also produced a graphic manual (akin to a comic book) on due diligence risks. The manual will be distributed to artisanal miners, traders, exporters, and other upstream actors. Once final reports are approved by the PPA Governance Committee and In-Region Work Group, they will be posted on the PPA website, along with the manual (in English, French, and Lingala).
