Purchase of Precious Minerals from Ghana

Date Posted: 01-07-2015

Embassy of Ghana wishes to advise that while Ghana is endowed with mineral deposits such as gold, diamond, manganese and bauxite, there are clear procedures for the purchase and exportation of such minerals. 

There are also unexploited economic deposits of iron ore, limestone, kaolin, feldspar and silica sands. Ghana welcomes all prospective investors including persons who wish to deal in gold or other precious minerals in Ghana.

In Ghana, one can only deal in gold or other precious minerals upon the grant of a valid license by the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources. Anyone offering such minerals for sale should therefore hold such a license.

For the avoidance of doubt, all prospective buyers of gold or other precious minerals and their foreign business collaborators are hereby advised to, in the first instance, contact the Minerals Commission in exploring or confirming business opportunities relating to the purchase and export of gold or other precious minerals from Ghana.

To verify the authenticity of any company or individual proposing to sell gold or other precious minerals from Ghana to you or your company, you may contact:

Minerals Commission,
