Mining company, Adamus Resources resettling 2000 residents of Salman

Adamus Resources Limited has started developing a  250 acre land to resettle more than 2000 people of the  Salman Community in the Ellembelle District in the Western Region.

The land, which is located one kilometer away from the existing town,  would have 710 structures  including  homes, schools, churches, mosque, teachers and nurses quarters, a health center, a police station, bore holes, refused damp, a market  and a palace.

Mr. Kofi Adu Osei, Social Responsibility Manager, told the Ghana News Agency that the company was undertaking the project to ensure that their mining activity did not cause havoc in the communities in which they operated.

The project is expected to be completed by December.

He said with support from the leadership of Salman and other stakeholders, a resettlement agreement was signed in May last year and a subsequent Memorandum of Understanding in October the same year.

Mr. Adu Osei said those documents in addition to the Resettlement Action Plan were the blue print for the resettlement of the new Salman Township.

The Social Responsibility Manager said though some members of the Salman Community had expressed concern about the sizes of  rooms, some materials for building and a host of other issues, their concerns would be addressed appropriately by the technical officers in charge of the project.

Mr. Adu Osei entreated the Community to assist in ensuring that the contractors met the standards and specifications assigned.

He debunked allegations from some community members that the company on two occasions did engage the services of military officers to brutalize members of the community.

    Adamus is a great company and hope they will not change or sell the company down the road for bigger mining company to get out of Ghana for their own selfish gains. Just like PMI which is doing very well because last Friday PMI lifted Toronto Stock Exchange else it will have tanked because of their triple discovery of the current mine.
