Newmont Ghana is a two year old gold mine that pulls about 500,000 onces a year out of this gold mine.  They had to resettle many people in communities neighboring their mine.  They built houses for them and are trying to do community projects that involve increasing protein, health etc....But the problem is once you move a farmer off his land for a gold mine, he has nothing to do.  And the idea that you have multiple wives and many children works well on a farm, but not in a subsidized community..Newmont claims they hire 60 percent of employees from surrounding communities, but those people are unskilled so the jobs they get are labor, kitchen, dish washing, laundry, etc.....Main contact at Mine is Scott Santti, Mining Manager.santti@newmont.com.+233 21 701 1852.+233 24 433 4468.And contact for gold room and security is Vernon Lange.vernon.lange@newmont.com.+233 21 701 1852.+233 24 433 2515.Fixer is:.Kofi Adu Dankwah (+233 24 474 9756)
