Parliamentary Inquiry on Mining Sector in Burkina

26 July 2016

(Burkina – Emine) – Ouagadougou July 26, 2016: Burkina Faso is, recently named among the mining countries but most of Burkina Faso peoples believe that the exploitation of the country’s natural resources does not give them what they deserve. This led the leaders during the Transition in 2015 to review the country’s mining code calling mining companies for more responsibility. But this does not seem satisfactory so that some people still call for a new revision of the mining code. This led the parliament of Burkina Faso to open a “parliamentary inquiry” by Resolution No. 019-2016 / AN of April 12th, 2016 “on the mining titles and the social responsibility of mining companies”.

The creation of this commission will clarify the management of mining titles and to know the social responsibility of mining companies over the period 2005 -2015.

Members of commission of the parliamentary inquiry were installed on June 14th, 2016. They will have to audit the whole chain of the management of mining titles (both government and mining companies side), audit the respect of the tender specifications by mining entrepreneurs in order to locate the responsibility of actors in the shortcomings identified and to make proposals and recommendations to clean up the management of mining rights as well as on the social responsibility of mining companies.

The commission plans to solicit the support of two experts able to help on specific questions related to mining titles; social responsibility of mining companies and mining taxation. Thus it has he been launched in mid-June the recruitment of two consultants:

  • a mining specialist with environmental skills and social responsibility of mining companies
  •  a mining tax specialist

The inquiry commission has two months to deposit its report.
