Abstract

This paper aims to explore and examine the evolution of ethical practices in Ghana’s mining industry from colonial era to contemporary times. From the period of colonial rule to the era of political independence in 1957, the mining industry in Ghana has undergone significant institutional changes from foreign dominance to nationalisation. Equally, the introduction of monetary policies to reform the Ghanaian economy in the 1980s brought about massive changes in the mining industry, particularly, the ownership structure and fiscal regime. This era witnessed the reversal of ownership from state-controlled to privatisation.
