Though illegal mining contributed significantly to Ghana's economy this contribution was negated by certain negative tendencies bordering on socio-economic and environmental issues as youth avoid school,die on pit, pollute water bodies, soils by mercury, indiscriminate felling of trees as cocoa and digging . In 2010 gold produced by small scale miners was 767,196 ounces, representing 23 percent of total gold produced in Ghana and directly employs over 600,000 and further 600,000 indirectly
