Guyana Gold/Diamond Mining Lawyer! scroll down for areas of practice

Guyana Mining law – Gold, Diamond and other Minerals - Ms. Jamela A. Ali, Attorney at Law and a former Member of the Guyana Gold Board.

Jamela A. Ali Law Office provides legal advice and representation to individuals, Guyana and international companies involved in prospecting and mining gold, diamond, uranium, manganese and other minerals. Agreements relating to the mining industry can also be prepared.

The Guyana Mining Laws are governed by the Mining Act Cap. 65:01 of The Laws of Guyana Revised Edition LRO 2012, purple Volume 12, formerly the Mining Act No. 20 of 1989. The Mining Regulations made under the old Mining Act, Chapter 65:01 in the green volume are still in force.

The Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) is in charge of gold mining and may issue 4 types of licences, permits or permissions:

1. Large Scale - Prospecting and Mining Licences. Local companies made up of foreigners can be issued with these licences.

2. Medium Scale - Prospecting or Mining permits. These permits are not usually more than 1200 acres. A foreigner cannot hold a Mining or Prospecting Permit. (section 57 (2))

3. Small Scale - Claims licences for mining can only be issued to Guyanese.

4. Reconnaissance  Permissions for Aerial Geological and Geophysical Surveys. Foreign companies may apply. 

There is no restriction in the Guyana Mining Laws prohibiting foreign persons or companies from entering into Joint Venture Agreements with local medium and small scale claim holders for the development of Mining and Prospecting properties. The GGMC has recognised such arrangements.   

Miners who hold Licences or Permits in areas recognised as Amerindian reservations are subject to the provisions of the Amerindian Act Cap. 29:01 as amended in 2006.
