This study focused on investigating institutional dimensions in management of
small-scale mining: A case of Winza Ruby Mining at Mpwapwa district by looking
on the managerial aspects and awareness of small-scale miners on mining policies
and laws, examine the factors influencing informal and illegal SSM, investigate the
environmental impacts of SSM and law enforcement mechanism towards execution
of monitoring and evaluation of environmental plan, and examine the challenges and
prospects in the management of SSM.
Using data collected from ground survey and questionnaires through SPSS and
Microsoft excel it was established that; managerial aspects are in place but what
came out was inadequate implementation. The awareness of SSMi on mining laws
and policies was found to be law and therefore, awareness creation is of paramount
to local miners. Even though the data revealed the decreased number of miners in
Winza ruby mining, there still potentials for the livelihoods of small-scale miners not
explored at the moment. Deforestation, pollution (land, air, water and sound) are the
challenges pointed out by the respondents.
From the findings it may be concluded that the Government policies on mining are
often confused and inconsistent, and frequently favor or focus on large-scale mining.
Government neglect of the SSM sector can be costly to governments in
administrative, financial, political, and environmental terms. Thus the study
recommends the government on; creation of small-scale mining policy, provision of
knowledge mining based, and financial support, reopening of STAMICO,
decentralization of mining licenses acquisition and the increased budget of the
ministry of energy and minerals.
