Conflict or coexistence ASM LSM

Nik Stoop, Janvier Kilosho and Marijke Verpoorten carried out a structured survey among a representative sample of 469 artisanal miners in Kamituga (see social minefield project). In this site, artisanal miners are currently at risk of being displaced by large-scale operations. Stoop et al asked questions about miners’ possible coping mechanisms, resulting in the paper “Relocation, reorientation or confrontation?”

Gabriel Kamundala studied the possibilities for a peaceful coexistence of artisanal and large-scale mining in a publication for IPIS.
