Bea Mountain Mining Company Faces Scrutiny Over Expansion Plans Amidst Controversy

By: Benjamin Keibah

Cape Mount County: As Bea Mountain Mining Company (BMMC) seeks to expand its operations into River Cess County, it finds itself embroiled in controversy and facing heightened scrutiny.

Accusations of labor misconduct, failure in corporate social responsibility, and environmental degradation have shadowed BMMC's activities in Kinjor, Grand Cape Mount County. Recent protests resulting in casualties have further intensified concerns.

During a Town Hall Meeting in ITI on April 17, 2024, BMMC's Country Representative, Deba Allen, outlined plans for exploration in River Cess, stressing the completion of groundwork initiated by AmLib United Mineral Inc. Allen emphasized peaceful cooperation and urged grievances to be directed through the Legislative Caucus.

However, skepticism looms large as Andrew Peters, Executive Director of the National Identification Registry, criticized the meeting as "restricted and teleguided," raising questions about the transparency of BMMC's acquisition of AmLib's exploration license.

The proposed expansion has ignited mixed reactions, with some welcoming the potential economic boost while others express apprehension over past grievances. Amidst mounting pressure, BMMC faces calls for transparency and accountability as it navigates its expansion plans in River Cess County.
