MIRECA-2

The RMCA fights illegal mineral resource exploitation and trade in the DRC

To help regulate exploitation and fight the illegal trade in mineral resources in the DRC, Minister of Foreign Affairs Yves Leterme entrusted the RMCA with the execution of the second phase of the MIRECA (Mineral Resources in Central Africa) Project.

MIRECA-2 has begun for a period of three years and has three main objectives:

  • the pilot project’s implementation in Katanga and analysis of the effects of mining activity on public health and the environment;
  • mapping tin, coltan and gold resources in the eastern DRC; 
  •  implementation of a mineral resource certification procedure, an important step toward limiting illegal trade.
