Gold mine (or metal content in the ore) production was 3.2 million ounces in 2014 - down by 8.2% over 2013 due to a fall in production at the Ahafo, Iduapriem and Tarkwa mines.
Artisanal gold mining plays a major role. Artisanal miners produced 1.5 million ounces of gold, accounting for 46.9% of the country's production in 2014.
The Ghanaian mining industry is regulated by the Minerals and Mining Act 2006, and is managed by the Ministry of Land and Resources and the Environment Protection Agency. The Minerals Commission is equally involved in the co-ordination and implementation of mining policies.
