Exton Cubic Group not permitted to mine at Nyinahin- EPA

| Updated Aug 23, 2017 at 4:00pm



The Environmental Protection Agency says it has not granted any permit to Exton Cubic Group to mine bauxite in Nyinahin in the Ashanti Region.

Activities of Exton Cubic Group in the Nyinahin forest have generated a lot of controversies after the Regional Minister ordered the seizure of its equipment.

The Lands and Natural Resources Minister, John Peter Amewu publicly stated that the group has a license to mine.

However, in a new twist, the EPA says the group has not completed all the processes needed to be granted the permit and therefore cannot operate in the forest.
