This e-Repository was created in support of quality and relevant research on local mining by the University of Guyana. The local mining sector poses many challenges and opportunities for the research community. For one, the sector embraces a wide range of issues in the fields of engineering, environmental science and management, economics, health, sociology and behavior psychology. Additionally, a number of stakeholders have deep vested interest in the sector, such as the government, miners themselves, Amerindians, and other land users.
The e-Repository therefore hopes to (i) provide useful research resources, (ii) encourage the practice of research dissemination, and (iii) as the ultimate aim, increase the impact of research at UG on the development of the sector.
