Illegal mining is identified as one of the rapidly rising threat to the environment, to revenues from natural resources, to state security, and to sustainable development. Illegal extraction and trade in minerals (mining) has been globally estimated as annual loos of resources at 12–48 billion. In this framework GRID is proposing to develop a publication with objective to synthesis main challenges around illegal mining, seek for inter-linkages with other crime activities, and possibly evaluate losses of illegal mining crime.
