Baseline Assessment of Development Minerals
SLR was hired to conduct extensive stakeholder engagement with governance, production, capacity building, financial, environmental and market actors across the development minerals spectrum. The baseline assessment was part of a wider international programme targeting development of non-metallic minerals to add value and improve socio-economic benefits in 6 developing economies.
The current mining law and draft Mineral Policy were reviewed, and recommendations made to bring them in line with international best practice.
The SLR Team visited 54 quarry operations in Jamaica to assess the technical, operational, environmental, social and economic impacts of quarrying in Jamaica; mapped current trends, identified target minerals for development.
