Iron ore mining can be broadly divided into two categories namely 1) manual mining which is employed in small mines and 2) mechanized mining is suitable for large iron ore mines. Manual mining method is normally to float ores and small mines. Mining of reef ore is also being done manually on a small scale. The float ore area is dug up manually with picks, crow bars, and spades, and then the material is manually screened and then stacked up. The waste is thrown back into the pits.
Small scale mining by the artisanal and small scale mining sector has expanded rapidly in Ghana. More than 60% of the total mining labor force is in this sector. The ASM in 2014 produced about 34% of exported gold making it a major sector of the Ghanaian economy and an important source of livelihood and income for more than a million Ghanaians.
