For the first time in Ghanaian “Gold Coast” history the Minexx in collaborating with Civil Society Organisation Solidaridad have successfully exported a batch of gold, fully traced from the mine with Minexx’s blockchain technology platform. The gold originated from the Obeng Mine, in Ghana, via trader H.A Exploits Ltd to the international market.
Marcus Scaramanga, CEO and co-founder, Minexx says:
“We are very pleased and proud to have achieved this milestone. Ghana is now the largest gold producer in Africa so for this landmark to have happened here is significant.
“Minexx is connecting local responsible miners to responsible buyers on the international market. This country first milestone kickstarts Minexx’s growth and scaling in Ghana.
“It is more important than ever that we move with pace, leveraging technology to provide solutions to the challenges the world faces and to play our role in delivering benefits to all in the supply chain – from the artisanal miners through to the consumer. This breakthrough in Ghana is another important step in this journey.”
Hon. Barbara Oteng Gyasi, Board Chairperson, Minerals Commission, Government of Ghana says:
“Minexx’s blockchain platform is a crucial step towards increased traceability and accountability in the mining sector in Ghana. This in turn means increased revenue for the exchequer to fund public works in Ghana. It also means the end consumer can be confident that this vital mineral has been produced responsibly.”
