In line with the changed macroeconomic policy of the country, this policy stresses private sector initiatives and the need to attract modern technology, and necessary investment capital for large-scale mining.  It sets out strategies for rationalizing artisanal and small-scale mining into organized and efficient operations in order to ensure gainful employment and poverty alleviation. It also aims at initiating actions to mitigate the adverse environmental and social aspects of mining.
Under this policy, the role of the Government will be to stimulate and guide private mining investment by administering, regulating and facilitating growth of the sector through a well-organized and efficient institutional framework.
