Gov’t to partner Rand Refinery to obtain LBMA certificate – Veep

The Vice President Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says the government is ready to collaborate with the board and management of Rand Refinery to help Ghana obtain London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) Certification.

Underscoring the importance of the LBMA certificate to the government’s plan to develop the mineral industry and make Ghana a key player in the refinery of mineral resources, Dr Bawumia said attaining the certification would propel Ghana to participate and exploit fully the benefits in the mineral value chain. 

He stated that the gamut of experience and expertise of the certification made them strategic and beneficial partners to Ghana and that partnering them would help the country evade the blunders other country’s committed on their journey to creating refinery hubs in their mining sector, “because you have a very long history in this area and also help us not to repeat mistakes of others”.

Dr Bawumia made these remarks when the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel A. Jinapor led the delegation from Rand Refinery to call on the Vice President on Monday, in Accra.
