Minister of Natural Resources grants extension of final amnesty for Miners

Following numerous requests from miners and their representative organisations, the GGDMA, GWMO and NMS, the Minister of Natural Resources Hon. Raphael G.0 Trotman, M.P., has issued a directive to the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission to extend the “Final Amnesty” for miners regarding the payment of rentals.

The Amnesty has now been extended from December 3142019, to March grit 2020.

This applies to all medium scale property holders who are in arrears and whose properties have not been published as cancelled in the Official Gazette.

The penalty accrued on such arrears will continue to attract a waiver of fifty percent (50%).

The Ministry takes this time to urge all property holders to avail themselves to this offer, lest their properties become cancelled. The MNR further advises that this opportunity be taken to make all outstanding payments of rentals before the new deadline stated.
