The Government plans to map all active and inactive quarries in an attempt to map the country’s lucrative construction mining sites. Mining Cabinet Secretary Dan Kazungu has already set up a task force to conduct the survey across the country.
“The task-force will identify all active and inactive quarries in Kenya and the state of their environmental compliance,” said a Kenya Gazette notice from the ministry.
The study is also expected to establish the legal status, land ownership and management of all active quarries as well as propose mechanisms for the rehabilitation and utilisation of inactive sites.
