Estelle Levin-Nally, Director of Levin Sources, recently appeared on 'Business Focus' on Cambridge TV. She discussed Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM), the company's role in mineral sector development, and how actors in both the public and private sectors can make positive impacts.
The interview is a useful primer for those new to ASM, but also has insights for those with an existing interest and relationship with the sector.
Some of the questions asked include:
- What is Artisanal and Small-scale Mining?
- How is ASM different from Medium and Large-scale Mining?
- Does ASM only take place in conflict-affected and high-risk areas?
- How is ASM an opportunity to be harnessed rather than a problem to be solved?
Estelle also talked about how Levin Sources helps its clients make positive impacts, the company's growing interest in migration and circular economies, and how the relationship between 'guerillas' and 'gorillas' became the foundational moment for Levin Sources.
