Police in Tete have expelled more than 4,000 foreign miners prospecting for gold illegally in Macanga.
The operation was triggered after negotiation between government authorities and the miners aimed at their withdrawal failed.
Macanga’s administrator, Hassane Ussene, told Radio Mozambique that Mozambique’s natural resources could not be allowed to illicitly enrich foreigners.
Ussene explained that illegal Mozambican prospectors should now be more aware of the desirability of organising themselves in associations so that they could be licensed to carry out their activities in accordance with the law.
“It is not forbidden to mine, but it is necessary to legalise operations so that the government and the community also gain from these activities,” he said.
The Macanga administrator said that communities should report foreigners exploiting the country’s mineral resources illegally to the authorities.Source: Rádio Moçambique
