Activities

The Mineral Resources Department (MRD) is one of the two Departments administered through the portfolio of the Ministry of Lands and Mineral Resources.
It has statutory functions through the Mining Division that regulates the mineral sector which includes all minerals whether of high or low value. This also covers whether the minerals are terrestrial or offshore and extractive activities like quarrying.

In addition to this, the Environment Division of the ministry is based at MRD to assist in regulatory functions associated and mandated under the sustainable development policies such as the Green growth Framework.
The department also manages the effective development of groundwater resources and the provision of clean safe drinking water through reticulation programs by the State.
Through the initiative of the government, we have seen in 2016 an extension to this work in the reticulation of groundwater from the borehole to the households. This is a milestone achieved as it has enabled all relevant government agencies to work together to successfully achieve one of the government’s manifesto.
