Galamsey activities have now moved from the forest belt where mining operations have been carried out for years to the coast. Those who doubt it can see for themselves people plunging themselves into galamsey business at the beaches of Elmina in search of the precious mineral, gold.

For the past few weeks most of the youth at Elmina in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem Municipality of the Central Region have been washing the sand at the beach looking for gold.

One lady who only gave her name as Womanbaser who seems to know everything about the galamsey business said they have been sending gold to Tarkwa in the Western Region for sale which she said is fetching them good money.

Some fishermen have also abandoned fishing to join the galamsey business which they say gives them more money than fishing.

School children have not been left out as some have also joined the rush for gold on the beach in their school uniforms.
