“We have a map of the location of these holes. We know where are all the illegal mines are,” said the governor. He also explained that some of these mini-mines can be legalized. According to him, work in this direction had been carried out before, but it was ineffective because people did not trust the government and continued corrupt underground operations.
“All that wish to work legally will receive the rights to do so. And all illegal mines that will not undergo legalisation will be closed. Within two months we will have put an end to this matter,” said Taruta.
