Is the government willing to listen?”On Saturday a government team led by Minister Robert Persaud and including Minister of Public Works, Robeson Benn; Head of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), William Woolford; Head of the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC), James Singh; and Odinga Lumumba, member of GGMC, visited Bartica to assure that the government was not intending to close the industry.Miners criticised opposition parties for not raising their voices in protests on critical mining issues and warned them that they will not be welcomed to use the occasion for politics since Bartica stands ready to fight its own battles.At the stormy meeting,Cheap Manchester City Soccer Jerseys, Minister Persaud told the packed gathering that the Industry was too crucial to Guyana for any contemplation that will ultimately hurt it.On Friday, it was announced that the mining community, long considered a gateway to the mining industry of the interior, was gearing to shut down all activities yesterday and hold a motorcade and rally to protest changes in policies for the mining sector which they said will effectively close them down.On Saturday, several miners and residents alike, numbering around 200, assembled at St John The Baptist Primary School, wearing yellow as a show of support for the importance of mining in that community.Minister Persaud had warned that a drop in gold price which is tied to the US dollar will have repercussions if the dollar gains strength.This is where the government’s Low Carbon Development Strategy comes in since it allows for the country to use resources to plug into other key areas even as mining continues in a greater way.“It has always been made clear that mining will continue. There has never been any discussion whether we should cease or reduce mining activities,” Persaud said.He emphasised that no decision has yet been made about many of the proposals dealing with mining issues such as the six-month notice period and dispelled rumours that the notice will prohibit small miners from operating.The outstanding contributions of the mining sector in 2009 were highlighted by Minister Persaud who noted that despite global challenges, mining held its reputation as one of the more resilient sectors. The same could not be said for rice, sugar, bauxite and tourism.“Why would anyone attempt to hurt that? Why would any sensible government or administration want to proceed in a direction to affect a sector that is one of the more resilient sectors?” Minister Persaud queried.Persaud, who is performing the duties of Prime Minister, acknowledged that lack of information may have fueled the concerns of residents and miners.Minister Benn assured that mining will not be affected if the right procedures are followed.“If you have a medium-scale mining permit and you identify where you want to mine, you can go and start mining and continue mining. There is nothing that will stop you from mining. What is required and what is already inherent in the laws is that you have to give notification so that under all the various stakeholders using our forest resources, we are able to ensure that the practices are sustainable,” Minister Benn said.
