A Sociological Survey of Small-scale Artisanal Gold Mining in the Kadoma-Chakari Area

Small-scale artisanal gold mining is a growing sector in Zimbabwe whose effects cannot be ignored. In the Kadoma-Chakari area this sector has significantly increased since the 1990’s. This can be linked with the downscaling of mining operations of the main mine in the area, Dalny Mine owned by Falcon Gold. This left the greater community in the area unemployed and as a means of survival most are engaged in small-scale gold mining as a self-employment drive to sustain their livelihoods.
