An online mining registry has just been launched in Togo. The platform was developed by the Direction Générale des Mines et de l’Energie (Directorate General of Mines and Energy or DGME).
Users can access, on the website, up-to-date data, mine maps, deeds, licenses, active firms, and the types of ores extracted in the country. This information will be updated daily, according to the DGME.
The creation of the digital platform was financed in line with Togo’s Mining Governance and Development Project (PDGM). With the website, Togolese authorities hope to boost mining activities, foster transparency in the sector, and attract more investments.
