Artisanal gold sector is an important sector in global gold supply chain. It is important because it provides livelihood to millions of people, at the same time, it is the source of supply for many refiners who are unable to enter into long term contract with large miners. We returned from Global Gold Dore Forum held in Dubai a few days back. Our interaction with global market participants made us believe that this sector has huge potential and there is need to support this industry. OECD and other various global organizations have been working relentlessly to develop this sector and towards it, we now have a few case studies in hand which shows it is possible to increase the productivity of the sector and in the bargain it is possible to prove this gold is ethically sourced.
