Community Economic Development in the Formalization of Small Scale Mining

This research project will include a thorough literature review pertaining to business models of potential benefit to the formalization of the small-scale mining sector. These models will be developed to this particular situation in order to improve efficiency, reduce pollution and increase community economic benefit. Working with SEF Canada will allow us to harmonize this model development with real, positive community economic impacts. Chris Tucker brings extensive knowledge of small scale mining and SEF Canada are experts in business development in particular in developing economies.
